Kids are messy, but that is part of what makes raising them so much fun. There is that old phrase "beauty is in the eye of the beholder." Remember that the next time your kid reminds you of Pigpen in Peanuts. With the right attitude, that exhausting work ahead becomes a beautiful mess.
This is an episode about enjoying every moment rather than worrying about the potential clean up later. This includes those times where the kids are loud, or just plain don't sleep on our schedule. Kids will be kids is more than a wise phase. It is a warning at times, but it is also a promise. When you allow your kids to be kids you are allowing them to bless you with their youth.
Even as your children get older and "grow up," they will still create their share of messes. Some are easy to clean, others are long lasting and might even leave stains. However, all of that is part of growing up and learning about life.
