I keep telling myself that with many small children, we are in a stage of life with more “mess-makers” than “cleaner-uppers.”
For now we are doing our best to embrace the mess and love the mess-makers, knowing that time will pass quickly and the little ones will be a huge help in no time. The older children are already very helpful; just not quick enough to keep up with more than their share.
So until the “cleaner-uppers” outnumber the “mess-makers”—this is real life…
