slice of life: his space.

everything in its place
He's got an office, friends. He's five and he has an office. In our family room. He's got a little corner by the windows that is full of his things - pens, pencils, stapler, DVDs, CDs, little cut-out paper butterflies, a dry erase board, Lego clock, T-ball trophy, glue, scissors...I could go on and on. Lots of stuff. It's a bit too much visual clutter for me, but I'm learning to be okay with it. Who cares if my family room is messy. Does it really matter in the grand scheme of things? No. I keep reminding myself of this. It's his fun, happy place to play. That's all that matters.

That's my boy, busted up nose, black eye, messed up hair .... but totally organized. Made me cry a little bit.

Truly, having kids really makes us come to terms with our clutter issues, doesn't it. ;)

Once we all moved out my mom said that she missed our clutter so although my kids "stuff" can drive me crazy. I embrace it ;o)
I love the picture!

How cute, he's so intent on arranging his "stuff".
I was like that when I was little...not my kids though.

I love these photos A. I saw them on Flickr and then forgot to come over here! What a precious little space for him, and that you let him have it. Love the light!
