It also doesn't make things easier when you have 2 little tornado's tearing up every room you touch. That also was an eye opener to me. I realized that my living room floor can be entirely covered in just their toys. Gross. This week the broken toys, mcdonalds toys and crap toys were thrown out, and baby toys stored away. Reduced their toys by half ish. Not bad.
Best trick to entertain a toddler while cleaning the kitchen, a sink full of bubbles and water. Throw in a few cups and we're good to go. The only mess you have to clean after that is the swamp they make on the counters and floor. Its worth having one of them busy while I clean.
Oh man, fall is coming. I'm on the hunt for killer crockpot recipes. We made chicken stew, but I'm thinking of other fun things. Any suggestions are welcome!
