Purging Toys Before Christmas
John at Catholic Packer Fan has a post up about purging toys before Christmas. This subject (the one of purging toys) is very near and dear to my heart. I hate unnecessary messes, and I refuse to clean up the ones my kids make. So, if they whine and complain about cleaning up, my theory is that it means they MUST have too many toys and that I need to start flinging. This either gets them in a mad rush to clean up, (and clean up right, not shoving everything in the shelf and under the beds)or they actually assent to my purging. Sometimes I think even children know when they have too much.
