Why I Don’t Deep Clean

Here’s what happens when I attempt to deep clean. I stumble across a photo album or old box of treasures…get lost in the memories…I may or may not shed a few tears…okay, tears are shed…and no cleaning happens. Every. Single. Time.

Take tonight for example. There’s this baby blue box that’s out of place. I knew it was going to happen. I took the lid off and it sucked me right in. There I go.

Coincidentally, as if in a movie with background music Remember When by Alan Jackson comes on my headphones [If you’ve never heard it, grab a box of tissues and prepare yourself]. AND as if that wasn’t enough I found this letter I wrote Cameron after he was born that I had no idea even existed:

A Strong-willed Woman

Hi. My name is Tiffany and I am the mother of a strong-willed child.
