messy {see it snap it love it}


I have to say
that my beautiful boy isn't particularly messy.
He has to be just about the tidiest cleanest eater I've ever seen
and he enjoys tidying his toys away for fun.
He doesn't particularly like messy things
and will poke tiny little morsels of dinner into his mouth 
rather than leaving them on his lip
or pick up crumbs on the high chair tray
to put them back into his bowl.
I have long given up hope of getting lovely food covered photos of him
because it just doesn't really happen.
But sometimes, just sometimes
we get a glimmer of a proper messy little boy
who empties toys all over the place
and then laughs about it.


Last weeks winner for the 'Surprise' challenge was this photo:


Crumby Mummy officially becomes he first double winner of Photo of the Week
with this little gem of a picture.
I especially love the little story of the trouble they went to to get it,
because that's what a photo challenge is all about.

    1. Hehe. Tidying up lessons are free, just so long as you don't want to actually play with any toys. X

  2. Count yourself very lucky! My daughter's bedroom usually looks messy five minutes after being tidied, she manages to cover herself, her table and the floor in food at mealtimes and she finds it funny to empty our shelves of DVDs and books!

    1. I am definitely cut from the messy mould, so having such a tidy child is very bizarre. Although I have always insisted on only have a couple of toys out at one time so perhaps it's rubbed off. X

    1. That was him cheekily pulling a face at me because I asked him where all the mess came from. He's a proper little monkey sometimes.

    1. That was definitely the game here. Fortunately he had as much fun putting them all away again afterwards. X

    1. I wish it was his room. That's my living room that he's completely trashed in this photo. We always start the day so tidy but the toys multiply as the day goes on. ;) x

    1. I'm not sure it will last, it may just be a phase. But it's definitely an advantage while it lasts. X

  10. Wow - aren't you lucky! Andrew's a neat eater, but that's the extent of his tidiness. He can destroy a room in a 3.2 seconds! lol!

    1. Very! Although I'm sure he'll grow out of being tidy, he can still destroy a room pretty quickly, he just likes to tidy it all up afterwards. X

    1. He was doing a lovely fake laugh at the time, which is why he looks like a maniac. X

  15. I love his cheeky face! Oh to have a tidy child though, my youngest could spend all day emptying out boxes and cupboards!

    1. Oh he still spends a lot of time emptying stuff. Fortunately he likes tidying it up afterwards. X

  16. What is your secret? I spend hours cleaning for it to look as mess again in five minutes. One of my boys tries to tidy but he just throws things in boxes and I am suprised he doesn't break stuff.

    1. I don't have a secret. I'm messy by nature so who knows where he got it from. X

  17. Lets hope he stays tidy! But glad he enjoys a mess occasionally!

    1. Definitely. If he wants to start tidying up after me that would be great too. X

  19. Now I know why you have white everywhere! You were forward planning so that mess would just look colourful and gorgeous!

    1. Hehehe. If only I had been forward planning. It's a lucky accident really..... that and the fact that they don't seem to make many children's toys in white. x
