That could be the understatement of the year.
I’m not sure if messy covers it.
They eat sand. And dirt. And anything else they can get in their mouth.
Ice cream? Mess.
An irresistibly cute mess, but a mess nonetheless.
Spaghetti? Even worse.
Spaghetti requires an immediate bath. Every. single. time.
Of course, there is always the celebratory mess. The one that I really look forward to- the first birthday.
All of these messes have one thing in common- I wouldn’t trade them for the world. Every spill, every mark on the wall, every meal that requires a bath- each mess means that I have two beautiful, messy children. At the end of the day, after I swept the floors 46794 times, washed down high chairs, and bathed my babies- I’m thankful for the opportunity to be their mama.
Messes and all.
This giveaway is going to run differently than others. Please read below for full rules. There are two prizes – a $100 Amazon Gift Card and a $50 Amazon Gift Card. You may only enter to win one or the other, not both.
If you are a blogger, create a blog post showing your children making a mess to be entered to win a $100 Amazon gift card. Somewhere in the post, you must mention that “this is my entry to the Appliances Online messiest kid competition, check out the other entries at It’s Gravy Baby.” Come back here and leave a link to your post in the comments.
If you do not have a blog, don’t feel left out! You can still enter to win a $50 Amazon gift card. Simply upload a photo of your child making a mess and mention that “this is my entry to the Appliances Online messiest kid competition, check out the other entries at It’s Gravy Baby.” You may use whichever sharing site you prefer- Instagram, Photobucket, Twitter, Flickr, etc. Please be sure that your photo is public so I can view it. Come back here and leave a link to your entry in the comments.
