Before and After

This morning this is what I found when I went to put clean bedding on the girls' beds. I could barely even walk in their room. So although I am not sure it is right to clean kids rooms for them, I went ahead and picked up so I could make the beds. Here is what I found:

9 books on the floor
2 rolls of scotch tape
7 stuffed animals
3 pajama pants/shirts
5 pens/pencils/crayons
1 sippy cup
1 mini Twix bar unopened
1 pair of scissors
1 glue stick
Bag of piano lesson books
A whole shopping bag full of arts and crafts stuff that went in the garbage
A multitude of dollhouse toys

It took me about an hour to get it straightened up (interspersed with watching the premiere of Project Runway from last night). And here is the after shot:

They are now home from school and I am tempted to lock the door to their room for a few hours so it will stay clean!

Scripture of the Day: 1 Corinthians 15:20-22


  1. It's very cute clean. I've been making my girls (almost 7 and 4) clean up every night.It's a pain and I have to help but it was a disaster.

  2. You cleaned it for them?! Wow--you are much nicer than me!!

  3. The fact that you could make a list of what was on the floor tells me that our boys room is much messier than your daughters'

  4. AMEN! It's amazing how a room can fall apart SO Quickly.
