It probably doesn't come as a surprise to anyone that my house doesn't always look like the pretty pictures I usually post on this blog. In fact, I sometimes look at this very blog that I myself publish just to remember what our house can actually look like when I tidy everything up. But the truth of the matter is, we actually live here and it would be sad if we all weren't able to make our messes everyday. First and foremost, like most parents, I want my kids to have the best childhood we can give them. I want them to remember a mother who was present, not one who was always worried about the tidiness of our house. I want them to have space to be creative. To be themselves. And let's not forget our two beloved dogs that are such an important part of our family. I want them to be comfortable too. :) And so I present for your viewing, my perfect mess.
This is what a random weekend morning looks like in our home. There are toys, books and skateboards strewn everywhere. And for the older kids? Well, it's not toys that they leave around, but their technology. Laptops, tablets, chargers and cell phones galore. And of course the dogs are in the middle of it all. But this is the stuff of life and my heart is full when all of my boys are at home.
