Make a Mess
Now that the kids are home from school for the summer, this is how my entryway looks on most days. I know that parents are supposed to teach their kids to clean up after themselves, but for most of the school year these toys are tucked away in a bin and shut in a closet.
But now that it's summer break, I see this on most days:
With the TV off and the toys just waiting for them, they are drawn into a game by just walking through the room. So, maybe we'll work on cleaning up after ourselves in September...
