I WILL NOT CLEAN THIS UP
(Though I am tempted)
Trying to get better at accepting messes that are entirely non-urgent. We do have a rule that the kids have to pick up all toys (we do an ‘inspection’) prior to screen time in the afternoon, so I can feel confident that this will not be there forever. Nor is it causing any harm (unless I step on a Lego).
This is level 2 parenting, folks. Just a mere 9.5 years in . . .
Also? This has been the absolute best Daylight Savings transition we have ever had. Honestly, if anything it just helped the kids get up in better moods for school. Today everyone left us alone until 7:20 am (at which point I was ready to get up anyway).
This feels like a milestone.
