Emma Grace...my sweet love!!!

If any of you know me, I'm kinda an organization freak. I like things to be organized and in their place and easy to find. I'm constantly rearranging and organizing our closets and cabinets and pantry...I can't clean without making a bigger mess by organizing. And..if any of you know my husband, you know that he's not so much that way. It's a good balance as I may go overboard if I didn't have him to balance me out!
So, last week, he was out of town and I got the organization bug and went to town on our room, our closet and our bathroom. I bought him a "desk" to store all his stuff that just piles up in our room and also gives him a place to work at night. I cleaned out drawers, rearranged the closet to maximize the space (amazing how much more space we have in there now! I should go shopping!!!) and the bathroom is sparkling clean!
Well, I did all of this mainly while Emma Grace (my 2.5 year old) was sleeping. When she woke up that morning, she was sitting in my room watching tv while I fixed her breakfast and she came in the kitchen and said "Mommy!" I turned around and looked at her and her eyes were as big as saucers. I said "what's wrong?" and she said "Mommy, I went in the bathroom and it is sooo pretty!"
I almost cried because I had worked so hard on it and she noticed! But then I thought "Now, that is sad. She noticed that my bathroom was clean and looked so pretty - it must look really bad and be really dirty most of the time."
My sweet little Emma Grace made my day by noticing all my hard work! :)
