Mess, mess, more mess

I thought I knew what I was signing up for. I knew kids made mess; snot, poo, vomit. I'm not, nor have ever been, a clean freak with a spotless house. But I thought the mess would be diminishing by now.

By the ages of 2 and almost 4 I thought the kids would be getting cleaner. Now instead of baby puke, it's wee accidents and spilt food. I know I need to give the kids the opportunity to feed themselves so they learn to do it neatly, but there is only so many times you can clean spilt yoghurt and custard off the rug and clothes!

Can I wait it out? Will I be able to get new rugs, wall paint, couches when they are s bit older? How old do they need to be? 5, 8, 17?

Am I being over-tidy? Do I need to back off a bit?
