When saying yes is a beautiful mess.

Settling in to nurse the baby I was looking forward to dozing off while he suckled.  Just as I began to relax, the 4 year old bolted in, a bag of chocolate chips in hand, the look of expectation in his eyes as he asked if we could make cookies.  I sighed to myself, and nodded yes, telling him as soon as I was done nursing his brother we could.  He danced out of the room, excitedly announcing to his other siblings that "mommy and me are going to make cookies"!   Saying yes to time with him, laying the laundry and dishes aside, creating a beautiful mess.
