Writings of a teachermom, choosing to stay home with her kids, while loathing all domestic responsibilities! In late Aug. 2008, I was diagnosed with Triple Negative breast cancer. After surgery, chemo and radiation, I was given theall clear. However, in the late summer of 2008, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor, which metasticized to other areas.

Toy Rooms

Among other things, one of the reasons why we bought this new house and finished the basement was so that the kids could have a room for all their toys and clutter.

Below are two pictures of our kids' playroom. Every kids' dream...right?????WRONG! Not my kids' dream. I have to talk them into going to their space....or threaten them to get down their "or else!"

Nope, they'd rather spread all their toys and clutter in the family room, on the glass table in the living room,
throughout the kitchen,
in the foyer,

and in the ultimate No-No place... Daddy's office.

Honestly, sometimes more space only equals more mess!

LOL just shows that the kids want to join in the adult action! I am sure once they are a bit older they will love their own space!!

They only do that because they want to be around their parents. Because they LOVE you sooooo much!!

That's like my kids with their room full of toys!

Much more fun to sprinkle them around the house.

Your home is really beautiful! The house we are in has a large living room/dining room. We put a kitchen table in the front room instead, and made the "dining room" a play area so they could play within sight of us lazing on the couch. Ha! Apparantly, the only place where toys don't end up is the shower. Even that is iffy.

Oh what a cool and ironic basement situation!(in an Alanis Morissete kinda way)
