Well I guess 6 hours of Lego clean up wasn’t a total waste of time.
I mean, it was a total waste of MY time, but watching the kids renew their interest in the legos gave me some satisfaction.
But it also made me realize what a state of disarray the rest of the toys were in.
Some days Aaron will ask me over 20 times where something is and all I can say is, “It’s somewhere in the house, it will show up eventually.”
For months we have been shoving toys in the bins randomly. As a result no one can find anything or play with the toys the way they were intended.
So I spend the better part of 2 days (which made the Lego project look like kid’s stuff, hahahaha!) shlepping to IKEA, re-sorting and paring down the basement.
And the final reveal….
Toy bins have been reorganized and labeled with pictures so even my non-readers have no excuse when it’s clean up time!
Perhaps I should now introduce a nightly clean up time…Pin It
