Graham lining up all his magnets.
But slowly in the last year or so my fridge has had more and more kids drawings on it. I have tried to fight it. I have spread the papers around so there were only a few on each of the 3 sides. But last week this is what I came down to:
Graham had pulled up a chair to the fridge and in his own words "made it look like an art gallery." (he was standing on the chair that's why they are only on the top) I have to admit, I kind of like it. Yes, I love things simple. I would love a clean fridge with absolutely nothing on it, but I love that it is a constant reminder of my sweet kids and their creativity. There is actually a painting done by my husband - also a sweet reminder that he still enjoys acting like a kid. So I am learning to get joy from the mess and the toys because I have such a short time with them here on earth. I am learning to enjoy all that parenting brings because God blessed me and allowed me to have 3 amazing, healthy kids:)
