I love decorating. It's my outlet, and I really put a lot of thought, effort and all of my creativity into it. But, things are not that important to me. Sure I get excited over a new rug, or the perfect lamp, or a gorgeous pillow. But the reality is I keep it in perspective. It's temporal. I want my house to be lived in, not stared at. I want my kids to feel at home, not like they are at a museum.
When something breaks, or get's messed up, I just say, "oh well, it was just a thing."
And that's how I keep my sanity.
Dmitri has been on a breaking streak lately. I try to avoid plastic, and so if he get's a hold of a plate, coffee mug, or glass, it is usually shattered pretty quickly.
Does anyone have any recommendations for break-resistant dishes or maybe just some heavy duty ones?
At this rate, we might not have anymore dishes to eat off of....
