Mrs. Clean

This is what a seven year old boy's room looks like if left to his own devices:

Please note the "trail" that has been created so that one can get from the door to the bed without breaking a leg.

So yesterday this is what I did:


I am hoping it will stay like this for more than a few days. However, in a week I am leaving on a girls trip to Mexico and The Husband will have the boys for four days so I am pretty sure it will be trashed by the time I get back.

I am down in the playroom doing the same thing! So not my job, but my little niece is coming for an over night and I don't want her to hurt herself on some random lego!

Wow, you got a lot accomplished. Very impressive. I will keep my fingers crossed that it stays that way for a little bit at least. Have fun on your girls' trip.

Very nice! I'm jealous. My boys are 13 & 15 and they don't leave a trail anymore. They just step on stuff. With big wet feet.

They have the same patch madras bedspreads. And their room is the same color as your sons--craziness.

MOTR - too funny! I fell in love with this when I saw it and bought it immediately. I can't imagine my boys as teenagers - scary!

Oh love-I couldn't believe the before! Egads! How long did it take him to get to that? The after looks wonderful.
