What is this mess!





When the your kids make a mess. STOP. THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK. Are they enjoying themselves? Are they being creative? Are they experimenting and learning? It is freeing to allow them to discover things on their own through play. Yes they will need to clean up after themselves but atleast allow them to soak up their childhood.
When I walk into an area that screams out "I AM AN ABSOLUTE MESS!" I can have confidence that someone had fun here!

Thank you for the reminder. I often become overwhelmed by the state of our house. For instance, you can not walk into my childen's bedrooms without stepping on a toy. Then I remember how the weather outside has been absolutely marvelous & we all have been spending more time outdoors playing then indoors tidying up. The mess will wait!
