I don’t want you to bash your kids. That’s not what this post is about. I just need some advice. I’m trying to filter my feelings and desires and determine if they are warranted or not.
I love my bedroom. I love the way it feels and looks. My little escape, if you will.
Here is my parental dilemma: my kids love to hang out in my bedroom. They love reading in there and wrestling in there and watching movies in there. All is fine.
somedays… I wish they wouldn’t.
I’m struggling with wanting my room to look nice and pristine all the time and taking from them some potentially great memories. I’m not saying they don’t ever get to play on our bed, but most of the time, I really don’t like walking in there and seeing my “stuff” messed up.
Now hear me, I know I can enforce the “clean-it-up-when-you-leave” but let’s be honest, they just don’t do it like I do. 🙂
Part of me says, “Ok, this is the only room I really care that they don’t mess up.”
The other part of me says, “Come on. They won’t be here forever. There might be a day you wished they were playing in your room.”
What does a mom do?
