Download this free Please Excuse the Mess, The Children are Making Memories chalkboard printable for your home!
One of the things I struggle with most as a mom is finding ways to keep my house somewhat neat, while still allowing my kids to be kids. There are just about always toys on the floor, the counter, or the table (or all three!) I’m forever doing laundry and there are piles of clothes to be folded on the end of the couch 6 days out of 7. There are always dishes in the sink to be washed or the drying rack to be put away. While there are days that this state of disarray definitely bothers me, I try to remember the ‘big picture.’
Let’s face it, we only have today with our kids, and will they remember a clean home, or a fun home? Frankly, I don’t even mind if they do remember the laundry on the couch, because hopefully it’s because of the fort they built with the sheets that hadn’t yet been folded.
Life is short, right? And we all know childhood is fleeting, so I give you permission to skip the housework! This printable is a nice reminder to let some of the “I shoulds” go, and just enjoy the time you have with your kiddos.
And if you don’t mind, please excuse the mess in our home…
