Embrace the Mess

The best childhood activities involve physical activity, exploring and creating, and... making a mess. As parents, we like to have things neat and organized, but somethings we need to let go. So, my advice for today is let the kids...

Build the fort.


Play hockey in the kitchen (with "boards" they make with all their toy bins).


Build a road from a roll of paper, and let the kids take out all their cars and trucks.


Or have a huge water fight in the yard.


Today, embrace the laughter, joy and mess.

Tomorrow, you can clean the house. Childhood passes much too quickly.
