Sometimes I am almost paralyzed wondering how we will manage an acreage when I look outside and our 600sqm isn't mowed and toys are littered around.
But today it reminded me of the process of moving from having just one child to two (or three if you are blessed with our kind of craziness).
You wonder how you could possibly look after another child, when one takes up all your time. Then life happens and you manage it. Sometimes it is a struggle, and sometimes pure joy.
I figure this is what maintenance will be like for us on the new property. Some jobs will be great like vegetable gardening, planting gorgeous flowers,
but others like spraying weeds, constantly mowing, and whipper-snippering will been mundane. The mundane helps to breed the appreciation for more special activities, and I am hoping may help to keep our children more grounded as they become old enough to take on some outside tasks.
