A Love Note (...of sorts)

As I set off this afternoon to pick up my cheeky minxes from school/kinder, I espied some graffiti under my window sill. Graffiti is nothing new to me. My girls are prolific in the art of texta/crayon/pencil/biro/jelly/lipstick/chocolate cookie/yoghurt autographs. Since becoming a mother I have long given up my Dream of having clean white walls and white furnishings, like the images I swoon over in interior design magazines and my Fantasy pinboards on Pinterest.

But this graffiti, dear readers, is here to stay. 
A love note from one of my mischievous daughters.
The 3 words they hear most often from their mother.


Do you have gifted graffiti artists leaving surprise love notes around your home too?

Oh, that's so gorgeous! My munchkins arne't big enough to write words yet... though I did get some lead pencil squiggles on teh wall one day. Has not happened again. :)

Will you be keeping it on the wall, or trying to erase it?

Oooh, love the lead pencil squiggles! I think this'll be a Keeper, Hayley. It'd break my heart to remove it xxx

This reminds me of Andy Pausch (author of 'The Last Lecture") when he tells a story of how his parents let him decorate his bedroom walls in whatever way he saw fit. He used to write mathematical equations. poetry etc all through-out his childhood on his walls and his parents kept it that way....I just admired the way his parents allowed him to be so free and unrestrained as a child - its an unconventional approach because a lot of us would freak!
Now your family has a story and visible token of love to share and be reminded of., always. Beautiful x
