Or even a daily lunch break.

Had to show my hubby the picture though to reassure him that it’s NOT just us. I recognize several of my bins, baskets and buckets, a couple of the trucks. Thankfully we haven’t hit train age yet. But mines got a layer on top of princess stuff, play teasets and about 7654 assorted Fisher Price Little People.

This is how my son’s (2.5 years) playroom looks like every other day – down to the overturned baskets the maze of railway tracks that go on and on forever.

I have another one on the way…so i can only imagine the mess getting bigger.

oh well, such is life. thankfully they grow up and the mess moves into their bedrooms and then you can close the door on them!

I’ve been lurking for a while now, but seeing this post, i just can’t help but to say something.

The funniest thing is as a mother of two boys (4 & 2), i had to do double take at the picture, because the toys, the cabinet, the toy bins/bucket, looks identical to mine. I thought it was my living room for a minute there.

I wonder how many other moms with sons have the exact same toys & storage. i just find it really amusing.

Good luck from one mother of 2 boys to another.

Driving, drugs, peer pressure, body image issues… need I say more about life with 2-3 teenagers in the house at one time?! But seriously, I wouldn’t change a thing (except the salary part!)

My 2 boys are pros and can get that done in about 10 minutes of quiet play. For the most part though, I have them pick up and organize their own room.

All I have to say is, “I’M GOING TO TEAR OFF YOUR EARS AND TAKE AWAY YOUR VIDEO GAMES FOR A MONTH IF YOU DON’T GET THIS ROOM CLEANED UP NOW!!!”

Or, I say, “If I have to clean up your room, I’ll do it my way.” This means I take a black plastic trash bag and put all the toys on the floor in the bag and give it to the Toy Troll. This troll will distribute all these fine toys to all the little boys and girls that deserve them.

Ahhh, good times.

But then again, Switzerland’s dogs are generally very well behaved and maybe 40 percent of the children are. Your sons are adorable, Mrs Steamy, but I’m sticking with canines!
