Kids Live Here

The evidence is all around. 24/7/52. My inner neat freak wrestles, but my mama’s heart takes comfort in the reminders of their presence.

They are still gonna have to clean this up, though.

  1. The open drawers! My dad made me close them all the time as a kid and now I can’t stand to see an open cabinet door or drawer! Love the sweet monkey!!

  2. Let me guess –was it one of the boys who left the drawers pulled out like that? Around here, it’s J and my hubby. I’m forever closing closet doors and shutting drawers after them.

  8. Oh, those open drawers! I love the chaos and mess of kids in the house. When my daughter would visit from Los Angeles she would often lug her laundry. We would have clothes hanging all over and lots of noise and life. She’s flown here to visit from Kansas but can’t bring her laundry on the plane :). Enjoy these fun years!!!

  12. My “rule” was consideration in common places – keep the places we share picked up. They got much more leeway in their own rooms – even when they shared … as long as they agreed on a messiness tolerance level! I found a “big” weekly bedroom clean up was more effective than day to day keeping on top of them. But then I’m not exactly a clean freak – so my tolerance level is pretty high!
