Life is Messy

Her face is rarely clean.

In order for it to be I would have to chase her around the house with a wet wipe or wash cloth.  ALL. DAY. LONG.

So instead I just take a lot of photos like this.

But it’s okay because those baby blues seem to overshadow the messiness and she does get a bath at the end of the day.

When she’s DONE eating.

You know, until the next day…

yes, that would be my 2 year-old daughter lying on the floor with my phone in hand, looking like a teenager, thankyouverymuch

  1. That is my one son, if he has a clean face something is WRONG! But she looks adorable, dirty face and all!

  2. She is ADORABLE!! And the messy mouth just makes her look less like a teenager, more like a toddler, right?

  3. I’m with Alison on that one … and the cuteness :)

  4. hee – so cute!!

  5. I gave up making sure my kids have clean faces ages ago. It is just not worth it. *sigh*

  6. How is she so big already?! Jeez! And #3 hasn’t had his face clean looking since he started solid foods. It’s part of his charm I think!

  7. Love it! That makes me miss messy little faces. She is getting so big.

  8. Wow – she looks so much like you – except of course you wash your face a bit more.

  9. I still cannot believe that she is 2. Where did the time go?

  10. Haha! I remember those days with my little brother. In fact he saw himself on video recently and said “Was my face ALWAYS dirty? Didn’t you ever wash it?”. Uh, yeah kid – but it was a waste of time. I should show him this so he’ll know it wasn’t just him. 😉

  11. Oh my, she is adorable – crumbs, or not! :)

  12. What I would give to be that cute with a dirty face. She’s so cute, you don’t even SEE the dirty!

    I love it. Just priceless!

  13. Yeah…we have a lot of faces like that around here, too!

  14. Wow. Those really are some beautiful eyes! What dirty face? :)
