Excuse This House

Thought this was appropriate for my home right now. These days I am happy if I can unload my dishwasher or fold a load of laundry in the same day, but I am happiest if I made time to sit down enough to see into my boy's eyes and just really be... 
Excuse This House 

Author: Unknown

 Some houses try to hide the fact
That children shelter there,
Ours boasts it quite openly,
The signs are everywhere.
For smears are on the windows,
Little smudges are on the doors
I should apologize, I guess
For toys strew on the floor.

But I sat down with my child
And we played and laughed and read
And if the doorbell doesn’t shine,
His eyes will shine instead.

For when at times I’m forced to choose
The one job or the other,
I’d like to cook and clean and scrub,
But first I’ll be a mother.
