The girls are cleaningup/ out their room. They started at around 9am this morning - no Saturday morning TV.
They are still at it. I think I need to go and lay down with a nice cool, wet washer over my face.
It would have been sooooo much easier and quicker if I had done it myself!
But that's not the principal of the matter is it? They made the mess, they need to clean it up, so they remember how awful it was to clean up, when they go to trash their room again.
I have to say though, it is most exhausting cleaning their room via yelling and threatening and putting things out for the Salvos (much tears and nooooo's occuring!).
My girls don't have many toys, in comparison to other kids I know (and what they have is pretty crappy stuff, really! they break the expensive stuff - albeit accidentally or carelessly (a whole other issue...grrr!) just as easily as the cheaper stuff!) but the little they have seems to get spread e.v.e.r.y.w.h.e.r.e.
I don't have photos, but I guess this where you (ie. Di) will tell me to go and get my camera, and then turn this post into a scrapbook page.
Sigh. OK, I am off to take a pic. They have probably got it tidy now I am going to take a pic!
