Is Your House Ever a Mess?

4.14.2011

 WELCOME TO SAVVY DAY CARE:

I have had a couple of bloggers ask me if my house is ever a mess. Are you kidding?! Of course. Let me show you what it looks like now while I am keeping my granddaughter, Leila for a couple of days.


And this is just the sun room. The kitchen table and floor around it is covered in baby things and the diaper bag and all the changing diaper stuff is in my master bedroom. So yes, my house does get messy!






Oh, is that my arm? Cool.


But this little face and the hugs and the laughing and the drool makes all the mess worth it!

Have a wonderful day!

KIM

  5. What mess? My eyes were focused on Sweet Little Leila! She's a good distraction from the mess if you ask me - a focal point, if you will... ;-)

  6. Oh, what a little cutie pie! What mess?! And I absolutely agree, let me have one watery semi-toothless grin from my grandson, or a krafty mess on my kitchen table from my granddaughter and everything else comes second.

  7. LOL! I had to laugh at your title, Kim, but I was thinking along the lines of everyday messes. Now this is a mess I can enjoy! Leila is so cute ~ love her smile and her sparkly eyes. I have that same Bumbo(?) seat at my house as well as that bouncy seat thing. When my granddaugther comes over we have the same set up ~ quilt on the floor with some toys, and the diaper bag is usually in there somewhere, too! Plus I got a big basket {although I'm finding not big enough} at Michaels that says "Baby Things" on it.

  8. How cute-just want to pinch those cheeks-so worth the "mess"!!

  9. I would never get anything done with that precious little girl around!!! ANd when she left I would probably be too exhaused from having way too much fun to want to clean!
    Love her up... you have the right perspective!
    BTW your sun room is beautiful, too.

  13. What a sweetie!
    My house is a mess, starting on about Wednesday every week, then it's gorgeous by Sunday, okay on Monday and then back downhill!

  14. Oh my goodness Kim, I want to just squeeze her and kiss her beautiful little face all over!! I'm so jealous! We have 11 grandkids and 9 are boys!! The 2 girls live in Seattle, so we hardly ever see them. We are dying to have a baby girl near us. On the flip side, we would be broke for sure! lol What a blessing. And BTW...even with baby things everywhere, your house is still awesome!

  15. I would be ecstatic if my house was as "messy" as yours. ;o}

    Your granddaughter is GORGEOUS! Look at those cheeks!

  16. the baby stuff and moving things to baby-proof, does make our homes a bit out of order, but I agree... worth every bit of disarray to be with that sweet faced baby who smiles back at you and you can snuggle with a hug.
    She's adorable!
    Does she wear you out? My 1 year old grandson keeps me hoping, I'm exhausted after our visits, but in a good heartwarming way!

  17. Hi Kim,
    She is absolutely adorable! She looks like such a happy baby. Enjoy your time with her.

  21. Kim, that is a wonderful reason to have a messy house. Mine gets messy "just because." Enjoy that beautiful baby. Debby

  22. That's the best kind of mess! She is so precious...

  23. Just precious! She's got the sweetest face! Looks like Grandma and Leila are enjoying themselves a lot!

  24. She is one beautiful baby! I miss those days of "baby stuff," although I wasn't sure I would at the time! Right now my home is covered with paint cans, chalkboards, furniture, trays, etc. etc. as I get ready for a new venture. I think I prefer your mess! :-)

  25. Your sweet grandbaby is such a 'Gerber' baby- what a beautiful girl! I love smiley babies!! In no way would I call your room a 'mess'. Monday mornings at my house resemble a bomb explosion site!

    ReplyDelete
  26. UGH! I hear ya! And I have 6 grands who are at my house at any given time...LOl My kitchen table and the dining room table seem to be a catchall for all kinds of things that don't belong there. But to be honest I rather have the mess and know that I am seeing their sweet faces than to have a neat and quiet house...they grow up too fast! She is ADORABLE!!

  27. Kim, That's the best kind of "mess". I love all the toys around when our grandson is here. Leila is precious. I like the photo of her looking at her arm.
    Thanks for sharing her cuteness.

  30. Oh man, Kim it's a good thing I don't live any closer, because I would be all over that sweet little thing! Those are the best messes in the world, and you keep on making them because as you know, they don't stay little very long! Give her a little kiss for me and have fun!

  33. Oh my! She's a little cuddle bug. Who cares about a little clutter when you get to play with grandbabies :) We know too well it doesn't stay around too long.

  34. Kim, she is too cute for words. There is nothing like having a sweet baby around the house. Yes, they cause a little chaos in their surroundings, but it is SO worth it!

    When I was out shopping the other day, I found something that I thought was made for you and Leila. I would love to send it to you. My email address is on my profile. Let me know if that is OK and I will pop it in the mail for the two of you!

  40. Little Leila is absolutely precious! My house is a mess right now. I have been working long hours and will have to wait until the weekend to put my house back together again. Enjoy your time with your little sweetie...that is much more important than a neat and tidy house. She is beautiful and look...she's giving you her love smiles!

  50. Darling Leila! I should have you over, Kim, and educate you about what a "mess" is. You merely demonstrated what your room looks like "in use." :o)

    ReplyDelete

  54. Before the husband and two kids, keeping a clean house was a breeze. Now? Not so much. I try not to be overly concerned about it, though, as I want to allow my kids the creative freedom to play and have fun, just as long as they clean up afterwards =)

    ReplyDelete
  55. What a dollie, love those bumbos they love to sit up like grown ups don't they!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Oh she is too precious! Her smile is just beautiful!!

    ReplyDelete
  57. A Grandbaby mess is one of the best messes. I always loved making forts, or playing in the kitchen with my own kids, so let me tell you, we had plenty of messes, too. Have fun with your darling granddaughter!

    ReplyDelete
  58. What an adorable little girl! Your house looks like mine with all of the "pink" laying around, but messy, I think not! ;) What paint color is that room? I love that green and I am looking to make a change in my den!

    ReplyDelete
  59. The paint color is rosemary sprig by Benjamin Moore.

    Thanks

  60. When the grandkids are here, things are always out of place but that's ok. They are worth it and can help clean up before they leave.
    It makes for precious memories!!

    ReplyDelete
  61. She looks to be worth the mess for sure. We all have messes... and we all do creative photography, ie: shove mess in closet, take photo, pull mess back out of closet and proceed with life.. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  74. Kim! She is just the cutest baby!!!! I busted out laughing when I saw every baby thing you need imaginable! Have fun!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  75. First - that is in no way qualifies as a mess but more importantly, with that cutie there no one is even looking at the house.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Kim she is so cuuuuuuuute. Oh wow - an endearing smile. So cute... I didn't even notice the mess!

  77. My family just cooked a nice baked chicken dinner and made my favortie dessert for my bday today. I prepared the house for the little ones to come and yes, the house is a mess, but the fun babies make it all worth it. My boys and daughter cleaned the kitchen after the party and all that's really left is the toys and uh, well, a bathroom sink full of toilet paper and water to the brim. My 3 year old grandson was washing hands....

    You have an adorable grandbaby! My house looks a lot like yours with all the baby stuff. I have a giant toy door sitting in my family room - it's the best toy ever!
