Someday

Someday I won’t have to sweep the kitchen floor three times a day. 

Someday I won’t find graham cracker crumbs in the bottom of my purse.

Someday I’ll open a drawer, any drawer, and it will still be organized and just the way I left it. 

Someday I’ll own more metal dishware and utensils than plastic ones.

Someday I won’t find matchbox cars in my shoes and baby dolls in my bed.

Someday I’ll work on craft projects at my kitchen table, not hidden away behind a locked door.  

Someday my blush and eye-shadows won’t be crumbled from being repeatedly dropped. 

Someday all my necklaces and shoes will be organized again.

Someday I won’t get to listen to the ABC song three hundred times a day…gonna miss that! 

Someday I won’t get to rock my baby to sleep.

Someday I won’t get unexpected slobbery kisses.

Someday my house will be quiet and I long for the sweet toddler noises to fill it again. 

Someday I’ll look back on these days and miss them, wishing for the simpler times. 

So TODAY I am going to delight in all the mundane tasks, the messy drawers, the dried food on my clothe. Today I will see these moments for what they are, precious moments that I will always cherish.

  1. This is the stuff real life is made of. Remember when our someday list looked forward to smudgy fingered windows and mac&cheese and pb&j on the kitchen chairs (nice suprise!). I have to remember my pre-mommy and pre-wife days often. I have what I wanted and more. I went to a baby shower where they played this “what’s in your purse” game. I didn’t get any points for the diapers, wipes, fishy crakers, baby socks and extra binkie. I did get lots of points for my photos though. Thanks for the reminder. Love ya!

  2. Someday is here for me – at least most of the time! I can’t wait until Grandkids fill my home and my life with all the graham cracker crumbs and slobbery kisses! Enjoy!
