As a mother to young kids we have messes. Everywhere. All the time. Even after they clean their room and clean their bathroom and clean up after themselves around the house. The clean just doesn't last very long. My husband calls it the “lived in look.” I concur. One day our kids will grow up, become adults, and move out. I imagine we will have less messes then.
Right now as I look around the house, I see stuffed animals strewn around on the bedroom floor. That means in “stuffed animal land” a fight or an adventure took place. In the living room books are left on the couch. That means my kids were diving into a story, learning vocabulary, and being introduced to something new. On the dining room table I see the Dinner Games left out. That means they don't want to forget them so we can deepen our relationships around the dinner table. In the bathroom are dirty socks on the floor and toothpaste in the sink. This means they remembered to take off their socks before getting into the shower and that at least some of the toothpaste made it in their mouths. Yes, there are messes all around my house...but not all of the time. Nor will it be like this for all time. I find the magic in the messes and adore the hot messes that made them.
