If you’re a regular Mrs D reader you’ll know that I really hate mess (especially painting and messy craft)!! I don’t cope well with it at all, so these two little cuties really tested my abilities to just ‘go with the flow’ on Sunday. I was busy doing some housework (as I do on a Sunday) when Mr D set them up with some painting out in the garden before heading out with Master J for a bike ride.
They were only left for a few minutes……but it was enough!!!!! Oh My Goodness, you should have seen the mess!!!!!! I literally froze with panic at the kitchen door when I first saw them, but the smiles and that beautiful sound of little giggles forced me to just sit down on the doorstep and watch.
They had a ball!!
How you you cope with mess??
Robyn, this looks like a whole lot of good fun! How hard was it getting the green out? xx
It actually came out pretty easily. Nothing nappy san couldn’t fix!! x
I saw a speaker last night called Maggie Dent, who said that we need to reframe how we see things. You can see mess or you can see totally disinhibited creativity. It’s great!
You sound just like my mum! You are so right though. I do try and see things differently and it does generally work xx
I shy away from messy play – the thought of cleaning up is what deters me.
Me too – but god knows why because I seem to have an addictions to cleaning things, lol!! x
Well done lovely, you made two little girls VERY VERY happy. And it’s only mess right 🙂 xxx
YUP (gulp)!!! It wasn’t so bad, and like you say it was so worth it just to watch them play xx
Oh my gosh! What a mess! I hope the paint came out of the clothes. At least the kids can be just thrown in the bath. Good on you for letting them go, and you also got a moment to smile at them being as happy as larry 🙂
I hosed them down in the garden before they even got in the both! I think they loved that just as much x
What beautiful photos! I am so glad you let them go!
Thanks lovely xx
He he… oh look at that beautiful green little face. They would have loved the freedom to be messy! It looks so much fun just looking at them.
It’s the concentrations!! Its pretty cute how little kids love to experiments with things and just get stuck in! I wish I could do that just as easily x
I don’t cope with mess very well but ive been slowly learning to embrace it especially with little kids. Your girls look like they had a great time! 🙂
Stunning photos and colours.
Priceless memories for 21st birthday.
I am really happy about this post. please keep up it.
