I am okay when I look over my home and find a set of toy keys sitting on the coffee table where they obviously do not belong.
I am okay when I find a lonely little stuffed toy on the floor in the dining room.
I am okay when I find the matching sister stuffed toy under the coffee table.
I am okay with pink doillie hearts being stuck to my living room wall.
It's okay because I am reminded that I do not live in the pages of a magazine.
I live in real life.
I live in a home with my husband and two small children.
I live in a home that is lived in.
I want my children to know that home is a place where we live and play and grow......
.......and when we are done, we clean up and put our toy keys away.
