I understand that with children come messes, lots of them. But, boy oh boy does it exhaust me to pick them up day in and day out. They are worth it, don't get me wrong, and I can't believe we are adding #4 to the list of soon-to-be "violators of tidiness." Sometimes I look forward to the day when they will all be big enough to pick up after themselves. However, I remind myself that these times are fleeting, and that it won't be long until I will sit at my computer in my tidy house wishing I had someone to pick up after. Thank goodness I'll always have Zach to fill that void. :)
