On Friday I posted about how my boys are starting to play together. I love it because they actually entertain each other for a while and I can actually get stuff done! Some of you tried to warn me that they were plotting against me in their little "boys club". I brushed it off thinking, "what could they possibly do?".
The other evening I was enjoying some time without the boys at my feet... it sounded like they were having a great time together in Jonah's room. Then I went to tell them that it was time to get in their pajamas. When I looked into the room I couldn't believe my eyes! It seems that every toy storage bin had exploded out into the room. I don't even know how my little guys could MOVE around in there. Here is what it looked like after we had started to clean up, and you can't even see the rest of the mess on the edges of the room!
Some of you may be saying, "Honey Mommy... that's not bad at all! You should see MY child's room!". In my defense, we have been trying to teach Jonah to play with a toy and then put it away. He is actually pretty good about it, so most of the time his room is pretty clean. However, I am sure that the more children we have, the bigger the messes will get.
I guess cleaning up after the boys play together will become a regular occurrence... but I don't mind it in exchange for a little peace and productivity.
In more exciting news for the day, look what Eli did today!
I was sorting laundry and looked over just in time to see Eli pull himself up to a stand. Luckily I had my camera nearby and he didn't quite know what to do from there. Isn't he a cutie? I can't believe he is already standing up at eight months old!
