Yeah, the cat agrees. It’s annoying. They put their pens, books, drawings, toys, small branches that looks like laser swards, lego, balls well you name it – pretty much everywhere. And never cleans up after them. You clean the house and 5 minutes laters it’s a mess. Annoys the hell out of me.
But now and then I try to think about how it would be if it wasn’t like that. How it will be when they grow up, when the toys are gone. Then I think I’ll miss it. Well not the cleaning up stuff. But all the small things I find in their pockets before I put the clothes in the washer. And all the small unnecessary stuff they keep in their drawers.
The classic duality of being a parent. The borderline things that annoy you but that you also love.
