Today I am thankful for messy floors. Just keeping it real for you, folks--this is picture of what my floor looks like more often than not. Yes, you can spot a couple of used diapers there. It happens. Messy floors remind me that I have small children who love to play, who have great imaginations, and who really don't care if anyone sees their mess! Georgia recently said, when I mentioned a friend was visiting: "Do we not have to clean? Can she just see our mess?" It was so funny and truthful and revealed what was really important--our friend was coming to visit us, and not inspect our floors (or counters, or sinks, or bathrooms...). Many days I get very frustrated at the continual mess that my kids make (you should see their room--the below picture is mild), but I want to treasure the messy moments while I have them. I hope you are treasuring your sticky, messy, real life moments as well.
