Living life in the carpool lane..

It’s weird.

When  M was sick, she didn’t really want to play, so our living room was pretty clean.  There weren’t many toys on the ground.  We could walk through our living room without hurting our feet by stepping on one of her toys.  The place was clean.  The place was presentable.

But it came at a price.  The cleanliness came because M was too sick to play.  She wasn’t in the mood to pull all her toys out.  She just wanted to lie around with me.  She just wanted to sit with me.  She was fine with just a book, or her iPad.  She didn’t climb.  We weren’t heard saying “M, no! Don’t climb that!  Get down!  Be careful!”

Now that she’s better, the bins are empty and the toys are scattered all over the place.  Every five minutes “M, be careful!” can be heard in our apartment.  Her books are all over the place.  We can no longer walk in a straight path because there are toys in our way.

Honestly, I’ve never been happier to see the mess.

It tells me that she’s better.  It tells me that she’s pretty much back to normal.  It tells me that she has the energy and strength to play around again.  It tells me that she’s happy to be out and about.

I wonder how long this “happiness” is going to last before my head explodes from the clutter?!
