I am the kind of mom that loves her home to be neat, tidy and (relatively) clean. I say relatively, because realistically I know that "clean" when you have other people (ie. children) around it is a difficult task. I am sure that a lot of us can relate to the clean one minute, then not the next minute phenomenon.
But, hey, it's okay! Seriously.
I am a firm believer that a home should be lived in, not merely a showcase. Just equip yourself with the right tools to get the place whipped back into to shape and you will find yourself some happiness.
Swiffer Says Yes To The Mess! So, go ahead, let them get it messy.A mess can be a great learning opportunity, in so many ways. Nearly all parents (97 per cent) agree that young children learn a lot from cleaning up a mess.
We've had some pretty epic messes in our home over the years. Everything from arts and crafts, to bringing the sand box inside and even some lovely baked goods have made the way to our table courtesy to a child's baking. Baking is especially messy. Yet, I firmly believe that kids need the opportunity to get their hands dirty in the kitchen. If you foster the love of cooking/baking early in life it should be with them for life. I can remember with great fondness spending hours upon hours with my own grandmother learning to bake in her farm kitchen.
Today, I happily carry on that tradition. In fact this coming weekend we have plans to use up some bananas by making muffins and loaves, to load up our freezer with delicious goodness!
As your child grows up you’ll never wonder “what could have been” when it comes to the creativity they express, as long as you’re providing a warm and welcoming environment.
