We're Being Invaded

If you have young boys, please tell me your house looks like this too:

(No, I haven't dusted that spot in a while.)

It used to drive me crazy, but now I try to let it be a gentle reminder that it won't be like this for long...and treasure each moment.


  1. Aww, I'd love some of those, in a few years you'll have big stinky shoes, oversize backpacks, soccer bags, tennis bags and their friends' socks and clothing they've left at your house. :)

  2. LOL! Love this, I have all girls so our invasions are barbie shoes(which hurt just as much as legos!)
    and princess costumes! ;) But your so right we need to treasure it because before we know it they will be off to college!

  3. You have the right attitude, and I LOVE it! In no time, they grow up and then they're out of the house. It's a little neater and a lot quieter. I had a little "moment" a while back. I was rocking a fussy baby in our church nursery. I gave her her bottle (that's why she was fussy!) and had a flashback to nursing my own children. How many times did I wish they'd hurry and fall asleep so I could clean something or finish some project! At that moment, I wished I could have every one of those minutes I wasn't fully enjoying that sweetness back. I have grandchildren to look forward to, though!

  4. Looks like Caleb has your creative genes :)

  5. I have 4 girls, so instead of army men I have ponies, polly pockets and barbies! I take the same approach - it won't be like this for too long.

  6. Clearly, I'm blog stalking tonight. Hahaha. Reading all your older posts.

    I cracked up at this because my house is two times as bad. Maybe more. Lol. Gotta love boys.

    Love your way of looking at it. You're spot on. :)
