More than one way

This morning I made the bed, all nice and neatly. I got in the shower and when I came out, I saw that Emma had proudly remodeled the bed.

And I laughed.

And it got me to thinking. Who is to say what the "right" way to make the bed is? I started thinking about when my kids make their bed one day. It probably won't look quite like I might want it to look. But I will smile and say "thank you sweetheart, great job." And one day they will get it. But it's important to encourage efforts, and to smile and laugh when things aren't quite perfect. Because really, life is about the mishaps.
