3 Ways to Embrace Messy Days
I don’t know about you, but I was a messy child and teen. Growing up, my room could have been considered a danger zone. It was hard to walk through it without tripping on stuff. Clothes, books, and shoes were strewn everywhere. My mom would ask me to clean my room over and over again, and then—when she couldn’t take it any more—she’d clean it for me. She’d also repeat the same thing each time, “I hate to see what your house is going to be like when you grow up!”
Thankfully, my mom has nothing to worry about. I’ve picked up all her clean-freak tendencies. There are few things I like better than putting the last clean t-shirt into a drawer and knowing all the laundry is washed, dried, and put away. Or seeing my pantry organized, with all the cans displayed by kind, with labels facing out. Our walking out of my kids’ rooms knowing the Legos are with the Legos, and the dolls are with the dolls, and the missing Green Lantern action figure has been reunited with his plastic motorcycle. Ahh. . .
Unfortunately these aren’t joys I can indulge in often because I have kids!
