Time to notice more

With children its amazing how quickly a house can get a little drab and dirty, playdoh seems to get smeared into the floor, the craft box that lives safely in the kitchen migrates into the living room and somehow glitter and glue ends up on the floor.  First thing in the morning my eyes are still sealed half closed and somehow the chaos slips by unnoticed until you realise the muddle they have managed to make!  I should wake up throw myself in to the shower and then neck back a very strong cup of tea before they awaken then I might be more on the ball when they sneakily move the messy craft items around the house and stop the disorder before it starts…

The last thing I want to do before breakfast is hunt out the hoover and try and restore order.  I want to come round slowly, with boys who sit sedately watching the cartoons for a little while, I know I dream big, so instead I think its time to be prepared instead!  I will do my best to put into plan operation wake up before the boys but as a back up its time to start researching into buying VAX Hoovers, because our handy little hoover cannot keep up with the mess the boys generate on a daily basis.

I am quite happy for them to have messy play outside; they are forever making magical potions with a whole host of crazy things then or even at the kitchen table!  Our kitchen is one part of the house we have not yet touched, so the fact a little paint is found up the walls and on the lampshade does not distress me at the moment.  If the time comes when we finally get round to decorating then I might be a little more precious and whip out the carpet washers at the first sign of a spillage.  Until then the kitchen is there little crafting paradise and has been since they were young.
