Hi Suzanne, This is in response to your "picture perfect" column. When my son was little I had to work all the time, and that left very little time for a "picture perfect" house. Never mind any good quality time with my son. So I chose time with my son. When you die, your clean house is not going to matter, your money, how much or little, isn't going with you, all the things you acquire here on earth stay here too. What matters is how you treat your child{ren} will always be what they remember the most. So forget any guilt over a messy house, just enjoy your family. A house staightened up is fine. I have a frame with a poem on it, and everyone should memorize it that has children and even if you don't, in case sometime you have family with kids over. There is no author name on it so I hope it is okay to reprint it. Maybe someone out there knows who it is. It goes like this: Cleaning and Scrubbing can wait til tomorrow for babies grow up we've learned to our sorrow. So quiet down cobwebs, dust go to sleep, I'm rocking my babies and babies don't keep. Teresa
