Okay, I am sick and tired of picking up after them. Why is it that they just don't see the mess? They can make it in like 2 minutes flat but then refuse to clean it up. My husband and I got so fed up with all their crap that we took all their toys and chairs and placed them in their toy room and locked the door. Now, they have to earn each toy back when they are good. I started to clean out their room. I already threw about 2 bags of trash out and have 2 bags of toys ready to be donated.
Here's a great blog entry about making a "Lost and Found" basket. I think I may try this method.
