The Spreading Effect

Do these images scare you? Or do they excite you, thinking “at least my place isn’t that bad!” Well, it could happen to anyone and it starts slowly. One room at a time, one book, fingerprint and crumb at a time. It is what I call the spreading effect. It is a huge topic of discussion among moms and it is a monster that I want to attack in this blog. You’ve heard the word: the concept of MESS!!!

“He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire, he set my feet on a rock and he gave me a firm place to stand” Psalm 40:2

    I heard your place looks great, but I guess you closed the doors to the above rooms when you had guests over?

    The photo on the top right was actually the winner of some kind of messiest office contest and the one on the left, though not my girls’ room has an erie resemblance to the way it can get. I tell you, it’s the spreading effect!

    Oh, and all this time I thought the spreading effect was limited to women’s rear ends. How interesting to see it here, too!

  4. Mary Says:

    Well, big M, on a more serious note, you have hit on a point that a current author has been speculating about. Tune in.

    I sold that room once.

    Yikes! I wish I’d used those photos for my post!
