As a married man with children, I have to deal with a lot of dirtiness. There are a lot of things that don’t go according to plan on a weekly basis. One of the biggest mistakes that I made was installing carpet. If I had gone with hardwood floors instead, then I wouldn’t have to call the carpet cleaners so often. Obviously, it’s not my wife that’s the problem. It’s the kids that make all the mess.
Kids are a big deal. I think that that goes without saying. It was a huge decision in my life to have kids. When I finally bit the bullet, I did it with a full understanding of the incredible responsibility that it would entail. At least, I thought I did. No one that doesn’t have kids could possibly understand how they change your life. Fortunately, most of the changes are positive. Luckily for me, my kids have been pretty mellow. They tend to take after me. So when they do get out of control, it’s for good reason. I myself get out of control once in a while. I have lots of examples of things going a little too far.
One experience that I remember vividly is when my wife and I invited several of our kid’s friends over for a play date. I decided that an art day in the living room would be a fun time. The issue was that when you mix paint and kids, you get a lot of flying paint. I was actually quite impressed with the level of quality of some of the paintings that the kids created, especially my kids. I think I have an artistic gene that I have passed down to them. But, the thing that impressed me more than their artistic abilities was the mess that the session created. I have had High Power Clean carpet cleaning on speed dial for a while now and they were able to come in and clean up all the mess. Another memorable experience was the time when the kids and I decided to make dinner for my wife. We got pretty elaborate on everything.
Our intentions were pure. We wanted to make sure that the kid’s mom understood how much we all loved her. Unfortunately, we planned a bigger meal than our kitchen could handle. Pretty soon, we had casseroles out in the living room and the boys were a tenderizing chicken in the dining room. We didn’t eat too much that night due to the fact that most of the items on the menu got ruined while we were making them. My wife was still impressed with our effort even though she was terrified of the mess that we had made all through the house.
Cleaning the kitchen was easy enough. But that incident was another time when I had to call High Power Clean carpet cleaning. Luckily they were able to swoop in and save the day like they usually do. I think my kids learned about the importance of effort.
