To be honest, I thought Jeremy would be the one leaving prints all over...every time he opened the refrigerator or the dishwashwer, I just knew there would be new smudges everywhere. Men don't usually pay a whole lot of attention to things like not wiping their fingers across the refrigerator door, you know!
What I didn't consider was the smudges these two little-bitty girls would leave ALL OVER the bottom of all three appliances. They love to sit in the kitchen floor and play, and they can't resist kissing their reflections in the surface of the fridge. And you know what? It just doesn't bother me all that much that my dishwasher looks like this:
All too soon, those smudges will begin to move higher up, as they learn to stand, then open the fridge or the dishwasher to find what they're looking for. Then, I can teach them how to Windex away their own fingerprints!
I have many, many things to focus on that are so much more important than the streaks on my kitchen appliances. For now, I find this little handprint kind of endearing. I might even think it's sort of cute.
