I thought this was a fun idea. So here are my Real Motherhood photos from a few weeks ago. Things were crazy busy with our little family when I took these photos. Thankfully, crazy always has splashes of sweet when you have littles around.
These crayons get thrown on the ground somewhere in our home at least once a day. It's what Bigfoot does with his box of crayons. And then he picks them up to either leave them or throw them again.
Here's a little bit of the sweet that plays around in our beautiful mess.
Mixed in with more crazy from the mess artist himself.
Accompanied with some good tunes. Mess artists needs their jams for inspiration.
Now, this mama needs more than good tunes to get through laundry mountains like this, but I am thankful for the sweetness that fills our home to make mountains like this possible in the first place.
Head on over to Messy Wife, Blessed Life for more Real Motherhood posts!
We always have crayons and colored pencils everywhere! Lucia loves to dump them out more than she likest to color with them. Your son is beautiful! Thanks for linking up.ReplyDelete
Yes! My oldest *rarely* colors. But, he will dump the crayons, break them, peel them all. day. long. Okay, maybe all day is slightly exaggerated but definitely a good part of an afternoon if I let him. Thanks for having me!Delete
I should have bought stock in crayons. Some mother should invent ones that don't snap right? And I often wonder if all the crayon papers are what's holding the house together?ReplyDelete
Jenny, you are so right! Stock with crayola will live strong for awhile. Haha, I love what you said about crayon paper! So true. I find that stuff everywhere!Delete
Ditto on the crayons. My toddler likes to break them in half and tear the wrappers off...and of course none of that makes it to the trashcan! My mom finally found some great Melissa & Doug crayons that are big and fat and don't break, and that don't have wrappers! Still doesn't guarantee they don't end up on the floor tho ;)ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by, Sarah! I'll have to check out the Melissa & Doug crayons! I love their stuff already, but haven't looked into their crayon options. Big and fat would provide for one less worry since I'm always worrying my youngest is going to find one I missed and we haven't even started solids yet! At the very least, the larger ones wouldn't be a choking hazard.Delete
