The things that irritates me now that I’ll miss later

Kids stuff laying all over the place. I like fun cool kids toys. But not everywhere all the time. Stepping on Lego parts, finding superman in the fridge, sleeping with too many soft toys in my bed.


Yeah, the cat agrees. It’s annoying. They put their pens, books, drawings, toys, small branches that looks like laser swards, lego, balls well you name it – pretty much everywhere. And never cleans up after them. You clean the house and 5 minutes laters it’s a mess. Annoys the hell out of me.

But now and then I try to think about how it would be if it wasn’t like that. How it will be when they grow up, when the toys are gone. Then I think I’ll miss it. Well not the cleaning up stuff. But all the small things I find in their pockets before I put the clothes in the washer. And all the small unnecessary stuff they keep in their drawers.
The classic duality of being a parent. The borderline things that annoy you but that you also love.

Stor igenkänning här. Trodde möjligen att du var den typen av förälder som låt barnens pryttlar svämma över i bostaden utan minsta irritation. ;-) I’m not!
