I am so thankful to Taipan and Taisim today. Yuta's at work, and I'm alone with them today, and have:
- weeded through closets and drawers to clean out clothes that are outgrown or not worn anymore. For not just Taipan and Taisim, but me and Yuta too! This means we no longer have 3-6mo size socks in the drawer.
- organized and cleaned up toys in the bedroom, two playrooms and the living room
Now I have four large trash bags of clothes and two large trash bags of toys that will go to the basement to be donated, sold, or rotated back upstairs. I'm hoping that Yuta won't mind helping me drag them to the basement when he gets home.
Woo hoo! I've been feeling a bit overwhelmed by the clutter, and am so happy that I was able to get all of that done, and it's only 3 o'clock. And the kids were helpful, and polite about it all. I did take breaks to play with them here and there, and Taisim hung out with me quite a bit, but I am so impressed with how accomodating they were when I told them what I wanted to get done today!
Oh, there's more I could do, but I want to play now and give them some focused time (why am I blogging then, you ask? Because they're eating and talking to me while I type).
