Muddy Floor = Happy Kid

Sometimes it feels like you just can't win.

On one hand you have a bazillion commercials for cleaning products, 10 trillion pins on how to clean everything with baking soda and peroxide, and gorgeous photos of pristine, dustless homes reminding you just how messy your own place is. Truthfully, my house is a disaster most of the time.

On the other hand we're told "the cleaning can wait, play with your kid!" Put down the mop and play Just Dance 3 until your feet fall off! Yes, yes, yes, there are times when the laundry can wait and round of golf in the dining room is in order... but sometimes my kid is forced to entertain himself. *gasps!*

Anyway, here's evidence that world doesn't come to an end when the floor isn't mopped and that sometimes digging a 3 foot hole in the garden all by himself is exactly the right thing for a 9 year old to do.

When D picked up these boots this morning (yes, I left that mess over night) he was delighted. "Wow! Cool! Mum, look at my boots!" How can you argue with that?

On the flip side of muddy messes...

... a tiny little something pink for Alpha Stamps "Think Pink" challenge. Make something, anything at all, that incorporates something pink, post a photo on their facebook wall, and you could win a fabulous shrine by Teri Calia. You have until May 15th to enter so get those crafty fingers working! All the official details are HERE.

What's that? No pink in your crafty stash? Haven't placed an order with Alpha Stamps yet? No worries, they're offering a free digital Pink Fairy ATC collage sheet by emailing [email protected]
