Tackled the playroom
Tonight Hubby and I got sick of tripping over things in the playroom and helped the boys get it cleaned up. It would be so nice if they could actually clean it themselves, but I can understand how such a huge mess would be daunting for little kids. I remember when I was young and my mom would tell me to clean my room and I would just look around and not know where to start. Big messes look even bigger to small kids, so when you tell them to "go clean up" they get overwhelmed. Anyway, working all together it took about half an hour. It was so trashed that you'd think we'd need industrial supplies to clean it up, but we just shoveled everything into a big pile and started sorting the toys into their respective bins and drawers. The boys were a bit more helpful than they usually are when we clean it up, so that was nice. What would be even more helpful is if they didn't make such a big mess in the first place lol.
