fun vs. messes

I'm not that old but geeze sometimes I can act like such an old fart. 

I posted this cute pic on Instagram and wrote
"Trying to embrace this fun moment instead of freaking out that they are getting all of my pillows and blankets dirty. #realmomz "

Because seriously this moment of fun and adventure is way more important than dirty pillows or blankets. 

Don't get me wrong I love to have fun! 
Especially with my kids. 
But I have a really hard time with the mess part of it. 
It's so lame but it's the truth. 

But even though it bothers me, I don't let it stop me. 
Because this is the stuff I want my kids childhood to be about. 

adventure, exploration and of course fun!

  Messes and all.

Sometimes I have a hard time doing that too, especially when I know them taking things like blankets outside will create more work (laundry) for me. :) Love seeing pictures of your babies!

I can so identify with everything you said. We want them to have fun, but oh the work from when they do. I'm glad you let them just play. You are right, these are the things memories are made of and blankets can be washed.
