Got a Messy Martin or two? I do! In fact the main character Martin in the book app ‘Grendel’s Great Escape’ was inspired by my eldest son A.K.A Pigpen. With Mother’s day just around the corner, I celebrate both my messy kids and thank God for them daily. I love them for their strength’s & weaknesses, the yaaaay moments & the Oh Noooo ones too. I love being their mom, and wouldn’t trade this job for anything. Being a mom is a rewarding but sometimes messy job which includes cleaning up life’s messes & imploring the kids to do their chores.
One of my favorite Mother’s days was when my eldest son cleaned all the windows in the apartment, it really doesn’t take much to make this mom happy. Now if only I could get them to clean their room & keep it that way would be the best mother’s day gift of all. Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful Moms & caregivers out there…it’s a full time job.
Martin was always putting things off until later including cleaning his room. “Oh, i’ll do it later” will only work for so long. See what happens when he finally tackles the laundry monster.
