Children are naturally messy creatures, you have them looking absolutely pristine and gorgeous at the start of the day, only to have them looking like they’ve been dragged through a bush backwards not even 10 minutes later…
When moonpie was first born I was one of those new mums who’s baby had to look well kept at all times, which is quite easy when they don’t move around unless of course you have the misfortune of an explosive nappy incident… But now shes crawling, feeding herself and just getting into everything I have officially given up, I just do not see the point anymore.
Don’t get me wrong I don’t let her go around absolutely filthy, It’s just pointless to change her clothes four times a day because she’s spills a little juice down her top or shes got a bit of sauce on her trousers …. why on earth make more washing for yourself by keep changing your child when they are just going to keep getting messy.
it’s only going to get worse as she gets older so I going to embrace the messyness (within reason) instead of fightinformation the losing battle.
So what’s everyone elses view? let them be messy or keep them as pristine as possible ?
