My husband had the great insight to move some of the significant toys to the kids rooms. Now, when I was growing up my sisters and my toys were mostly in our room, save for a few that lived in our basement closet. But I don't know why it never occurred to me that our kids could have toys in their rooms and...it would mean less crap on the main floor of my house.
Apparently if you take the same amount of toys and spread them throughout the house, it looks like a bunch of smaller messes and seems so much more doable than if all the toys were dumped in one spot.
What do you other moms do?
- Do you keep all toys on the main floor of your house right in the middle of the action?
- Do your kids keep stuff in their rooms and therefore spend lots of time upstairs away from where you are cooking dinner?
- Do you have one of those mythical playrooms to where all toys are banished and you never have to look at them?
