    I will seize the moment by letting my kids be kids and not worry about messes as we enjoy our holiday baking together. I have to remember that we are creating memories that will last.

    I try to remind myself that boys are meant to be dirty and it all comes off in the wash. I will try to let them help me more in the kitchen, reminding myself that dirty is okay!

    Well the video was interesting to say the least! The only downside was that my profile pic includes me with my baby and his head got most of the abuse including the pie in his face. Poor little guy! I definitely have a hard time with stains. I can’t stand them on my kids clothing, furniture, etc. I need to let some of that go and just realize that things will get messy and it isn’t the end of the world if my boys go to the store with a stain on their shirt. In the grand scheme of things, it really doesn’t matter. I need to let them just be kids.

    It has encouraged me to not worry so much about mess and let my kids simply enjoy being kids. I am even going to let them jump in muddy puddles.

    I am a neat mom, but when doing crafts I realize the girls have more fun if they get messy. I’m going to let them get marker, glitter, and glue all over, because the process and end product is so worth it!!

    I find myself saying the words “pick this up” more than one hundred times a day to my kids. I will try to be a little more lenient and let my kids be kids!

    I still really like that Shout app. It is so cool. I am seizing the moment by having the kids help with holiday cookies and decorating, and not worrying about the mess I will be cleaning up afterwards. They are only young once and I am learning to be a whole lot more tolerant with messes.

    I will let my kids lead more often, whether it’s in play or cooking, and see where it takes us. They always have more fun (and make more messes) when they’re the boss.

    I get so stressed about my son having no stains on his clothes and making sure his face is clean before we go out in public, but I’ve come to realize that by doing that, I’m suppressing who he really is! He is a rough and tumble, messy, live out loud little guy and I’m going to let him be him from now on!

    I’m seizing the moment by accepting the mess that comes with kids’ crafts!

    “What changes will you make to seize the moment (even if it means getting messy) and live life out loud?”

    this year we will have more fun and do things that may cause messes because they are fun!

    I will seize the moment by not worrying so much about any of the mess they make with finger painting and jump in an finger paint right along with them.
