Before I delve into this post, I would like to talk a little about the recent events at Sandy Hook. If I didn’t mention anything, I feel like I be would trying to pretend it hasn’t bothered me, and isn’t worth mentioning. It did bother me, and is absolutely terrible. It also unearths a lot of heavy stuff. Guns, violence, morality, mental illnesses, God…everything comes to the surface. I think everyone who has a soul wants to know why, and wants to prevent this in the future. I have my theories and ideas on it.
It’s unfortunate to say this, but public schools have kicked God out for a while now. I truly believe God is a God of grace, and shines the light of the sun, and rain from heaven on both the good and bad. BUT his help is something he doesn’t force on us. We need to ask for it, and when schools take a stance against him, there’s no question he feels unneeded. People are fine living without Him, but get mad at him when things like this happen.
Don’t get me wrong, I still think it’s a severe penalty for kicking God out, but it goes deeper than that. Once you kick God out, you kick the right and the wrong out, truth and love. All things go to hell, so to speak, when God is removed. The world wouldn’t be perfect even if everyone brought Him back in, but I can guarantee the world would be better off, and would stop slopping down like it has, little by little.
On to lighter material (there really is no way of not making this segway awkward, let’s be honest)….Welcome back to another day of Make it Easy Monday, where I attempt to highlight different tips and tricks that can make this little ol’ life a little, well, easier. Who doesn’t like that? The topic for the day?
How to actually get laundry done when you have a 9 month old.
Okay, so I know everyone is different, and will go about it differently, but since having a baby I have found it increasingly difficult to get laundry done. More specifically, getting it done while he’s awake. And I know, I know, “the baby is more important than the laundry.” I get that, but it’s still nice to get it done, and makes life smoother (at least for me), when I stay on top of it. That being said, I have this trick that helps me: Make a game of it!
I put him in the laundry bin, and ride him around the house pretending it’s a choo-choo train. He loves playing in the laundry, and loves it if I hide some toys in the bin:
Truthfully the toy he found happened by accident, but what a happy accident! It was a blast for him.
Do you have any tricks up your sleeve to get laundry done (without a lot of hassle)?
That’s all for now,
