Well I guess your family must have been perfect because most of the moms on here have had incidences such as the ones on that site (the minor ones at least). And those who say they haven't had ANY are lying.
Don't get your panties in a twist Bella.
My family was FAR from perfect. We were screwed up enough to kill one off, have another with multiple suicide attempts, and at least 3 of us kids in therapy. If the other 2 kids have never gone, that's only because they were the nuttiest.
And no, we weren't repressed as far as making a mess. My mother was a horrible housekeeper, and a lousy excuse for a mother in general.
The messes I remember were all things that could be picked up off the floor, unbroken, like toys or books, paper or something.
Not food, liquids, paint or all the other gooey stuff. Nothing that permanently damaged carpets, walls, cars, etc etc.
Any incidences that occured had to be minor, because I know there were no major ones, and that's no lie.
I didn't like getting messy.
I didn't like getting sweaty and dirty.
That's why I've always hated the summer, and loved the winter.
I've always been happiest when I'm clean, and as far as I can remember, the dirtiest any of us got was when my brothers were working outdoors as teens. But they took showers when they came in, before anything else.
Again, I just don't find pictures of children, or people in general, who are dirty, or sitting around in messes humorous.
I'm just talking for me, and am not comparing myself to any mother, family, or person here.
Like that picture posted above with the spaghetti on the kids head?
Just a waste of food, and the kid doesn't seem happy. The person who had too clean it up probably wasn't too crazy about it either.
