Sometimes it is hard to keep a straight face when parenting. I know I should have probably been cross when my youngest children initialed my best "going out" shoes. Or the time my eldest drew all over his baby brother's face with a highlighter pen. I did manage not to laugh outwardly and there has not been any "decorations" on our walls, so I guess that counts as a parenting success.
Over the past year or so I have found little "treasures" in my youngest boy's shorts on laundry days and it always makes me smile. I know it won't be long until these precious treasure no longer appear. So for now I am grateful for the little things... The finger smudges on my mirrors, the drawings on my shopping lists, the random items found in the strangest places.
I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
