Get Organized: Features & My Kids Get It!

Watch out! I am on a purging rampage. Actually, I really hadn’t been but I have a true story for you. My sweet children wake up very very early. Very. So they are used to playing and being sweet and quiet until 7:00 {they normally arise at 6:30 no matter what time they are tucked in}. The other morning, I woke up and walked down the hallway to find them behind closed doors in my son’s room. Hmmm. I opened the door and almost fainted. His toys {every single one } were strewn all over the floor. Everything was everywhere. If you know me at all, you know this gives me hives. But I had literally just woken up and hadn’t said a word to them so I put a huge smile on my face and said, “Good morning!” My daughter took one look at my face and said, “Oh, mom. Don’t worry. We are sorting into KEEP, DONATE and TRASH!”  Say what?? Huh? My kids are magically sorting all of their toys? Was this for real or was I being punked? There were no hidden cameras and my kiddos purged three garbage bags of trash and a car load of donations. I went with it. And I mean all the way. I scratched all of our plans that day and we finished what they had started. And then I heard those words every mommy who likes to organize dreams of hearing, “Mom, we realized we don’t need all of this. We only play with a few things. This is all just stuff.” Huh? I haven’t been the same since. I feel like something clicked in them. And I didn’t force it upon them or even ask. They realized that the more stuff you have, the less enjoyment there really is. They chose the things that are special or the things that elicit more creative play. The rest is gone! So it seemed timely that I show you features from the link up party. You all are an organized bunch and it makes my heart sing.
