Perspective



Yesterday was downright hairy.

I was trying to do too much, which, as you can imagine, happens from time to time.

I think the kids enjoyed it for the most part.
At various times throughout the day, they were covered in dirt (head to toe), drenched with water (the result of an indoor water fight), and covered in paint.

Ah, Motherhood...The only way to survive is to keep it all in perspective.
Not an easy task.

But looking at this photo, the messes sort of fade away...in my mind, at least.
