My Life Is A Mess Right Now

If you know me, you know that I like for things to be neat and clean. I also like for the kids to be entertained while I "work".

My sweet nephew came over yesterday evening (to pick Big Daddy up for a man-date) and took one look at the pots, pans and toys in the floor and the chips, salsa, salad and enchiladas all over the table and asked "do you need me to do something???". I handed over a crying Ellie and tried to finish washing dishes and started playing another Taylor Swift video on youtube for Maggie. Maggie has discovered a love of chips and salsa and the videos were sort of her dessert.

(Ellie loves to play in the kitchen...just look at that smile! You'll notice that Dorothy is back, too.)

If we have somewhere to go (at least three mornings during the week) Maggie and Ellie usually play while I get ready. Maggie usually closes the door to her room so that she can have a little "private time". It's quite at treat if she allows Ellie in her room.
They were playing well this morning and I thought I'd sneak a peek and take a picture of them playing together. This is what I saw! For some reason, Maggie is all to happy to let me take pictures of her if she's partially dressed or doing something silly.

I know the look on Ellie's face is one of admiration and she's thinking "I can't wait to be big like my sister. I love her".

Maggie proceeded to take off the fairy wings and run around and act, in her words "crazy and n@ked". She put the fairy wings back on with a dress and wore them to the Library. After about 45 seconds inside she asked to put them in the car.

While Maggie was running around all "crazy and n@ked", I dressed Ellie. While I was straightening up her room, she crawled into my room and found my hidden box of tissues. Of course, she started tearing them up.

She blew a raspberry when I told her she was making a mess.

I like to think that all of the cleaning that I do is not in vain. I'm sure that the house is clean under all of the mess.

Same here but it's all made by one rambunctious little fella.

you are not alone. :) that picture of Maggie, making the face with the wings on, looks just like her little face in the collage you did of her, labeled vasa previa miracle, on your side bar...the top right...don'tcha think?!!
