All I ask is that the house be clean.....
I have come to the unavoidable conclusion that perhaps they have too many things to play with. I am beginning to dread the Christmas holidays knowing that even more toys will come. I have started to sort through their toys to find the ones rarely played with or that are broken or missing pieces. The broken or incomplete ones will be tossed out. The ones in good condition need to go. I think we will have a garage sale if I ever can find a free weekend with good weather to hold one. Still other toys I think will be moved into storage in the basement to be rotated upstairs periodically. Perhaps if they have less toys to play with they will be better able to keep them clean.
I dream of a day when I will be able to walk through a room without needing to step over toys, and to be able to simply turn the vacuum on and clean the carpet without needing to ask the kids to pick their stuff up for the 100th time that day. Is it really so much to ask????
