oh, to be 4



one thing i try to do as a mom,
is just let my kids be kids.

and sometimes that means
really big, creative, messes
filled with imagination.

huge, wonderful, crayon and pony filled messes
that take like a hour+ to clean up.

it's the happiest disaster ever.

Eve's room often looks just like that. I hate it. Am I allowed to say that? But I try to let it be.

I clean a mess just like that every day--even down to the Strawberry Shortcake house! Maybe it's the age. . . :)

I'm thinkin' before she settled in to color, she lined up all the ponies and put them down for a nap. Love her and her nurturing little spirit and flamboyant imagination!

You are the best. I use to love getting all of my kids wooden puzzles and dumping all of them in the middle of the floor and seeing how fast we could put them all back together on the right boards. So much fun.

I love this picture- just what being a little girl should look like!

Agreed. I need to think like this more often. -- I often revel in the imaginary world kids come up with. It amazes me; and I get pretty jealous of it, actually.

One of these days I'm totally joining in on one of their "trips" and letting them lead the way.

Soon.

Because jealousy isn't cute. ;)
