after (I can actually close the toyboxes now)
Well, as I lamented earlier this week...my kids seem to be a bit underappreciative of the wonderful time of year called summer! So in order to cure this boredom I have decided to put them to work cleaning out toy boxes, dresser drawers, closets and of course the big playroom upstairs. I told them that since they couldn't find anything to occupy their time, that I would occupy their time by putting them to work and I have ultimate power over what stays and what goes. I marvel at the utter junk that accumulates in all the nooks and crannies of the kids rooms. I unfortunately did not get a before shot of Abbey's room, but I have included a before and after shot of Brady's room. I trust none of you will judge me and my inability to train my children to properly clean their rooms! And for all of you expectant mother's...just wait...your day is coming in the very near future when you too will look at your child's room and say "how in the world did it get this way?"
AAAAHHHHH! Can you feel the weight being lifted off a poor Mom's shoulders? 4 big black trash bags full of "donations" and 2 big black trash bags full of garbage! Man! I got a lot accomplished in one day! Hmmm we have company coming to town in a couple of weeks for our July chuch meeting...I wonder what else I can get done before then? Uuhhh, maybe a playground.
