They’ll remember the love, but will they remember the mess?

“They will remember the love, not the mess”

Do you ever find yourself questioning whether that’s true or not?

The answer is yes. Yes, it’s true. And yes, it’s not true.

On the surface it’s true, they won’t remember that time you sat down to watch a movie before doing the dishes after lunch.

BUT, they will remember if your home is always such a mess that it causes you so much stress and anxiety that it affects your ability to be present as their mother.
