yesterday, a friend of mine came over and helped me clean up my kids' bedrooms. it had been a while for the bedrooms. i think we found about 15 pairs of pants under andy's bed. he always seems to need more pants and now i know why. it's so nice to be able to walk in their rooms and not be afraid of stepping on a lego or breaking some toys. andy was at school, but emmy was a big help. of course i had an allergy attack from all the dust. i got really stuffy and my throat got scratchy. blech. anyway, i now have a garbage bag full of toys they don't need and clothes that are too small. we really need to get rid of more toys. emmy's toy box won't even close. andy doesn't even have a toy box. i'm sure we could make him a toy box. that would be lots of fun. and maybe we could build emmy a table so she can have tea parties in her room. that would be splendid! and then i could post pictures on here to show.
i've come to realize that i have a basket fettish. i love them. everytime i go to a thrift store i have to look at the baskets. i don't even need anymore baskets, but i got one the other day anyway. emmy got one also. i like to have baskets on hand for when i need them. yesterday i was glad to have some small ones. andrew now has somewhere to keep all his rocks and emmy has something to hold her porcelain tea set she just got. i didn't realize how many rocks andy had 'til we picked up everything in his room. i don't understand why he likes rocks so much. they don't seem like pretty rocks to me. just basic rocks. i guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
