Letting the kids get themselves deep into a painting project is that kind of mess. But, the kids are in school today. (Praise the Lord!!)
For me, a favorite "best mess" is...well...my kitchen this morning.
Recipes, measuring cups and ingredients scattered.
Pots and pans boiling and browning.
Kitchen Aid churning out dough and well-conditioned pans yielding chocolate-toffee cookies.
A sink of which you can't see the bottom.
Because a friend's family has now grown to seven!
And even though a baby girl doesn't eat much, her big brothers do.
Today, that's definitely a "best mess."
