Order in the Chaos

26 Sep

My small group met today at our house. We studied Genesis 1, when God created order from chaos. As we discussed how to apply the passage to our daily lives Ruby disappeared upstairs. She was quiet and I was enjoying myself so I just let her be.

Big mistake.

Apparently she had decided to teach me my own lesson. When I finally ventured upstairs this is what I found:

(that is my makeup in the sink)


What you can’t see is that the little trash can is full of powder and water and there is POOP IN THE BATHTUB! When I asked Ruby what she had done she said “I just make this big mess!” Thank God my wonderful friends were here to help; I was able to laugh a little instead of collapsing in a puddle of frustrated tears.

The children gave me a little gift later on when they both napped for about 30 minutes. Instead of being productive I watched “More Business of Being Born” on Netflix–heavenly.

    I so wish that I had photos of your face after you dropped the container of Nestles Quick Chocolate mix and your face was covered in cocoa and when you covered your face with Desitin diaper cream just as we were on our way out the door to church.

    Sarah! Lizzie is already into everything and doing these kinds of things in our bathroom. It is only going to grow in larger scale! Oh goodness, I’m glad you had your camera ready and friends to help!

    Oh my goodness…. I probably would have lost it. Hilarious after the fact, of course, but at the time….
