The boys always see me messing with "accessorizing" the house. That's the designer term for taking stuff or crap (which ever way you look at it) and making it look pretty while also setting the stage for something for dust to settle on. So anyway, I'm always fluffing this and fluffing that, rearranging this, hiding that...when I'm walking through the hallway and noticed the boys had "added" a little 2 and 3 yr old touch on my to one of my "pretties"(as I call them). Cute, but I don't think so.... I smiled, left it there for a minute or so and then had to move them.
Everyone always asks me, "How can your house look so nice with little kids?". I was just bound and determined to keep thing pretty much looking "adult-designer" like and nice once we started a family. I just started very young with them, saying "uuuuhhhhh (I never use no unless it's dangerous..) Mommies pretties". They have just grown up knowing not to mess with the pretty things and they actually do a great job at listening....good job boys!!!
