My kids are more than their mess and I am more than an organized home.

Eating in Bathtubs

by Breanna Lowman

Some days

Some days I'm tempted to

Some days I'm tempted to feed my kids in the bathtub

So as to avoid

So as to avoid having to clean the floor

So as to avoid having to clean the floor after every meal...

So as to avoid having to clean the floor after every meal... (especially when it's rice)

Some days

Some days I desire to erase

Some days I desire to erase the chaos that comes with having kids

So as to avoid

So as to avoid the constant reorganizing

So as to avoid the constant reorganizing of toys that always find their way under my feet...

So as to avoid the constant reorganizing of toys that always find their way under my feet... (especially Lego's)

But my kids are more

But my kids are more than their mess

But my kids are more than their mess And I am more

But my kids are more than their mess And I am more than an organized home

My kids bring fullness

and joy and surprise

They let me see anew with open eyes

I've learned to play again

that's what's keeping me young

and at the end of the day it's all worth being done

So I wouldn't erase the mess

even though I'm a little OCD

I realize I need to be free

For their mess is my teacher

moving me toward peace and reflection

instead of striving for perfection
