david took the girls to cali for the weekend. they all returned this afternoon. i took the opportunity to get a lot of things done that are difficult to do with everyone around. the first thing that got tackled was my girl's dresser drawers. if anything would make me stop and think about having any more children (i'm not) it would be the fact that those cute, sweet babies grow up and turn their rooms into a landfill. the trash and items under the bed would make a grown man cry. whenever my girls go missing things the first place i tell them to look is under the bed. of course that is the last place they look because even they can't stomach it.

and their dresser drawers. as much as a mess or worse. i mean, i could understand if they had no dressers or even if they had only one drawer. but there are at least 4 drawers. and this is how they should roll--underwear and socks in one drawer, pajamas in another, shirts in yet another drawer and pants in the last one. my girl's drawers looked like the apocalypse had taken place in them. coats with hangers and sweaters and tops all crammed into one tiny area. pants and dresses living together in sin. dresses go in a closet on a hanger--am i wrong?

so i cleaned it all up and i have a bet with myself--i give it one week before it is all helter skelter again. although i would be happily surprised if it remained in any semblance of order for longer than that. and kerry challenged me to scrap this and put it up on my blog by friday. so i will take her up on her challenge and challenge any of you that read this to scrap their kid's mess. peace...L

I hear ya on the dresser thing. Ellie sort of stuffs any article of clothing that she can find in there -- including filthy dirty ones.

Love the under the bed picture!

I have decided just to throw all my kids crap in one room and let them dig for it if they want it bad enough. Okay I am thinking about doing that. Take care, Tammi

You should see my teenage daughters room. Unbelievable. I am surprised she has somewhere to sleep at night. I try not to go in there because truly it is a lost cause.

Shoot, it's Friday already?? I probably would have finished my messy room layout if my scraproom wasn't such a mess! Shh, don't tell the kids! ;)

I would never take a picture of What's under Bailee's bed. I'm certain that CPS would get called as well as the Center for Disease control.
