I never was one of those boys who were magnetically drawn to mud puddles. That’s not to say that I didn’t make my share of messes. My Mom only brought out the Play-Doh on special occasions because she knew her post game activity would be picking dried Play-Doh crumbs out of the carpet.
These days, I enjoy when things are neat and orderly. But I’ve been gaining a new appreciation for messes. (I am sure that this in no way has anything to do with me having a 20-month-old.)
Alas, a theme is afoot. Kim recently wrote a cool post about messes, following one I wrote about how messes are tied to curiosity. Then I came across this awesome video by Zach Daulton. [Hat tip to Josh Crocker]
Be sure to watch it. It’s cute, clever, and very, very wise.
Meanwhile, I’m feeling the sudden need to keep a closer eye on Lucy and make sure my Play-Doh is in a safe place…
