Spending time with friends and family can lead to fun and memorable moments, but also some very messy ones. Tell us about the messiest moments that you’ll always remember!
My children have taught me some great lessons through some of the messiest moments. I have learned that they may be small, but they are capable of doing great things and really want to help out. Once, they started cleaning out the fridge on their own because they thought we were moving. I have learned to take joy in the small moments and look at things in a new way. Like, Cocoa Powder does look like dirt and could be really fun to throw! lol And I have learned their hearts are big. My son was so excited to be in our new house that I woke up early one morning only to find him downstairs hand mopping the kitchen floor with his own creation of a water bucket.
I have also learned that when you think you have hidden something really good, it is never enough, especially if they are determined to find it!
I swear this all happened in under a minute!
When I look at all these messes, I realize that they are doing just what they see me doing…just messier. lol What a burden and a joy I have to be responsible for teaching these two kiddos by my example. They help me want to be a better me. They also help me realize that practice makes perfect and sometimes messes are necessary!
P.S. In case you are wondering, lipstick is difficult to get off the walls of the shower. Chemicals helpful! =)
