I spent most of Sunday tackling the kids' toys. I sorted stuff into baskets and bins and organized everything into these two (amazing! deep! illuminated!) closets in the basement.
And I mean ORGANIZED. The contents of the play kitchen may or may not be sorted by FOOD GROUP.
So, naturally, five minutes later...
That was ALL IKE, by the way. Two-plus years of Montessori education in action, yo.
Luckily, it was a pretty quick and painless clean-up thanks to the bins! bins! I am obsessed with bins!!, and Ike and I had good long talk about playing with ONE THING AT A TIME and with less of an...aggressively nuclear kind of play style.
(Not pictured: the play kitchen at the end of that hallway, dumped completely over on a pile of defeated Ninja Turtle villains.)
My next project was setting up some bookshelves in the kids' bedroom hallway, so they can pick books out before bed.
And it actually looked JUST LIKE THIS for almost a full hour. That's a damn personal household best.
