The Never Ending Battle

If anyone is wondering... "gee, I wonder what Kristi is doing today?" here is your answer:

Do your kids mess up their room this badly in just a day? Please say yes. I'd hate to be the only one.

Kristi I am afraid that this only happens in your house! Yeah right, we have the same problem over here.

My girls are TERRIBLE! There has only been a short span of time when my girls room has not SURPASSED this mess on a daily basis. It was when the closet doors were broken and off the tracks, so only Peter or myself could lift them out of the way so that they could get into their clothes (their dresser is in the closet too). I've tried putting clothes out of their reach, but that made it even messier as they jumped and grabbed onto shirt sleeves and yanked them down breaking COUNTLESS hangers in the process (we've since switched to kid size wire hangers that we can bend back into shape) but then they missed and grabbed the wrong one and ended up with a pile of clean clothes on the floor. And then I've tried putting them down at their fingertips and then they just changed their mind and didn't bother to hang it back up. And that doesn't even begin to touch on the fact that they change clothes 30 gazillion times a day! Maddie has improved since starting school and being gone for most of the day now, so there is hope. And we have had NUMEROUS teaching sessions of how to hang up clothes. So hopefully it won't last forever. But for now, you are CERTAINLY not alone!

A mess like that can happen in ten minutes at my house. Don't worry, you are not alone.

And I thought that only happened at my house. I feel much better :)
