Before I had children, I loved my house. I am no Martha Stewart, but our house had the three C's...comfort, clean and clutter-free!
When we had Cooper, we turned our home office into the playroom and vowed that all of the toys would stay in there. We did a pretty good job for a few months, but then toys crept into the family room. And then the basement. And then the kitchen. You can see where I am going.
Once we had Cole, things just got completely out of control. I should not complain. Along with people being very generous with gifts, most of our friends and family have older kids, so our guys are fortunate enough to get some great hand-me-down toys. However, now our house could pass for a Toys R Us showroom.
So how do I get my house back? People tell me to wait 10 years...the toys get much smaller, but the price tags get much bigger.
