I’m the kind of person who gets bothered by fingerprints and smudges on computer screens and televisions and the like. It’s just one of those things.
But I find myself less bothered by them on windows. I think it’s because when the hand print is on a window, I know it’s because one of my children was excited about something happening outside. They observed something beautiful or fun or exciting, and they wanted to see it better, to get closer.
I love that. So, kids, go ahead and smudge the windows. We’ll clean them later.
