White Couches and Kids Don’t Mix…

Life's Messy

We were at my brother and sister-in-law’s house, who have no children and a home that is basically all-white-everything… from couches, to cabinets, to carpet. I can’t even begin to tell you how nervous and anxious I was  that one of my kids was going to break something, get their dog wound up, get their home dirty, or who knows what. I couldn’t even enjoy myself, because I was so nervous.  Well, my nervousness didn’t pay off … at all.


Here’s my Little Dinosaur who got chocolate all over their white couch, even after I thought I’d cleaned his hands and face so well. This is a moment I’ll never forget. It showed me that my life isn’t perfect, but it’s full of smiles and love and laughter – and that’s perfect enough for me.
