The HIDEOUT needs a Clean Sweep. Desperately.
We have big plans for an Update on Decor but need to deplete our accumulated crap on hand by (I think) 50%. How do you decide what to keep? Every time I swing my arm to toss a toy into the donate box, I get tears and shouts like, "But I love it so much!" from Joel. (just checkin' to see if you are paying attention!)
Jack wants to sell everything on EBay. Luke thinks I am out to get him. And Kate, well she's the baby and acts like I am asking her to share. "It's MINE!!!!" (this is an area of manners we are really working on right now)
I know this is my doing. I have taught them to savor the flavor of tangible items. I teach by example. When it comes to parting with stuff, all of MY stuff falls into the Treasured Items I Love box. This is going to be a LONG day.
