Ok ladies, time to weigh in on a mommy question I have concerning toys and the cleaning up of them…
Here’s the scoop. I’m a weirdo about having a clean/picked up house. I make no qualms about it. I just feel yucky when my house is a mess, I feel relaxed when it’s not. So I don’t like it when there are toys all over the place for an extended period of time. Since I made the move to stay-at-home-mom, I have instituted the rule that clean up is part of play.
Therefore, if Cooper is playing in his room upstairs and he wants to go downstairs, he has to clean his toys up in his room first. Likewise if we are downstairs and he wants to go upstairs to his room to play; gotta clean up the toys downstairs before the change of venue.
So my question is, what do you do? Do you or your kids clean up once a day in one en masse gig? Do you or your kids clean up as you go? What do you do?
I’d do a poll with voting,…but poll daddy and wordpress don’t seem to be talking to each other well right now…so just leave your comments!
