Let Them Be Kids!!

As a Mom I sometimes cringe when I see my kids covered in something i.e food, paint, glue, soap, whatever their fancy but I would say that for the most part I have a pretty relaxed take on the whole thing. More so since Grace was born but even when Lexi was little I remember laughing when she came in to show me that she had gotten into the Elmers Glue and she was covered from head to toe, I took pictures before giving her a bath just because I thought it was funny. Now don't get me wrong I don't give my kids free reign but I try to let them be kids. Well I have been working on scanning the girls pictures (pre-digital) into the computer and I found some evidence of the amazing work that my girls have done. James has not yet given me the photo opp but he has plenty of time so I won't be rushing him any!!

The one of Grace (top) she was eating yogurt and decided it would make for an excellent body lotion!

The one of Lexi (bottom) she was finger painting and I left the room to use the restroom and upon my return I found this!! How could you get mad at that face though!!

What a good mom you are. I'm definitely working on not getting stressed about the messes. It's starting to get to a point where it's just out of my control anyway. Those pictures are great!

I love these kind of pictures! I have one of Madison with lotion and one of Karley with toothpaste!
Alexis has the sweetest baby face...and she DOES look like your Mom!

Too funny! My mom tells me all the time to just let them be kids, but I still fly off the deep end. :-) I'm sure my kids would like me a lot more if I were a FUN mom like you!

ooohh I have yet to experience this, and I can only hope I stay patient and laugh, but judging from how I reacted when Phoenix pooped in the tub, I don't have much faith in myself. LOL
