How many times.......

How many times a day do I clean this area?? TOO MANY!!!! Brooklinn LOVES to put on different hats and wrap herself in a scarf and wear our shoes! She has fun so I let her do it! But I think I might change my strategy up a bit - I will wait until later in the day to clean it up (no matter how badly I want to do it right now)!!!!

Reminds me of a quote I read once: cleaning your house while your kids are still growing is like shoveling the sidewalk before it stops snowing! 

Of course I shouldn't take this quote literal. I waited for it to stop snowing before shoveling a few years ago!  It was so deep that I almost couldn't do it and it took much, much longer than it should have! I guess I need to look for that "happy medium" - somewhere between my house being spotless and my house resembling a pig sty!
