Playtime. In my house I am not a good enough mom to teach my kids how to pick up after themselves. Or how to get something out and then when they're done put it all away. I know I should. I know I will regret it very soon. But right now, the difference between my kids "picking up" their toys, and me just picking them up, is about 45 mins. So here is a very typical day in our house.
|Toys dragged out of playroom into entry way|
|Crayons, markers and paper scattered everywhere|
|Art table a mess|
|Dirty kitchen (they get this from their mother)|
|At least they like each other...|
|and play together (pretty) well|
