One of my biggest struggles as a mom who stays at home with the kids all day, is embracing the mess. The messy house, messy baby, messy car, messy EVERYTHING. I know, it just comes with the territory of having kids (especially boys) but I’m the type that thrives in a clean and organized, not messy environment. I like to clean up the mess immediately, or sometimes avoid it altogether. It’s impossible and exhausting to live like that. Especially in the summer time. All the fun of summer + kids screams mess.
I’m working on just letting the mess happen, to let it be, and to let these boys just be boys and enjoy it all….
Enjoy the chalky fingers, faces and clothes! The sticky snow cones. Watermelon juice dripping down their bellies. Ketchup on faces from summer BBQ’s.
Lemonade spills in the car. Blackened bare feet. Salty, sweaty skin. Counting the ocean or the pool as a bath. Faces covered in melted mallows. Campfire ashes on cheeks.
All of it, the epitome of a messy summer.
And this summer I just want to embrace it all. Because the moments are gone too quickly, but the memories last forever.
And because when the moments are over and it’s time to clean up, baby wipes are a mama’s best friend! Right? I never leave home without them. Even when we’re out of the baby stage, I think we’ll always have baby wipes with us because they make cleaning up so easy. We love using Simple Truth Baby Wipes for all of our summer cleanup. They’re natural, fragrance free and gentle on my kiddos skin. Even when I’m constantly wiping and cleaning their faces and hands. They’re thick and durable too, so they get the job done without breaking and tearing apart. You can find the wipes and all of the other Simple Truth Baby products in Kroger stores.
We love the Simple Truth Brand, their diapers, wipes, and organic food pouches are helping our little family make summer memories! Mess and all 🙂
