Terrible Twosdays: What A Mess!
Hello, and welcome to Terrible Twosdays, a new way for me to stick to a blogging schedule of some sort. Today I will chat about the unnecessary mess a toddler creates. I like to call it “unmessessary”.
Whoever coined the phrase “No sense in crying over spilt milk” was obviously not a stay-at-home parent. There are days where I do cry over just that! Days when my kids think it’s hilarious to fling their straws filled with thick, creamy milk all over the newly-polished table. Or dump it upside down into a sea of breakfast cereal, outside of a bowl. Oh the joys! I can’t count the messes I clean up in a day that are a result of a toddler simply being a toddler. No real reason, no “oops-a-daisies”…just pure & evil messes. I despise cleaning up after silly behavior, but I know there’s a lot more in store for me.
There it is again, testing my patience. You have to choose your battles, and today I declare Spilled milk is not one of my battles. On this day, there will be sunshine and rainbows. No crying over what’s been done here, not today. I’m going to enjoy the day, whatever it brings, messes and all.
