Soooo, I have been missing in action as far as the internet world is concerned.  I've been trying to address some areas in real life that needed desperate attention, and blogging, tweeting, and facebook were not helping.

As all of my regular readers know, I am a horrible housekeeper.  In my blog absence, I was able to actually clean up!  (Please hold while I pat myself on the back!)

I want deperately for my daughters to be neater and more organized than I am.  This is very important to me. I've struggled with how to accomplish this since I suck at organization.  Well, I asked a friend of mine whose kids do pick up after themselves how she managed to do it.  Her answer was amazingly simple, I can't believe it didn't occur to me...

She told me that she makes them pick up after themselves.

Well, duh.  As parents, aren't WE responsible for our children's actions?  I took what she said and put it in action.  Sure, sometimes Piper complains about having to pick up her room, but every night her toys and things are neatly put away where they belong.  I'm hoping this trend will continue. =)

But, I'm happy to say that I am back!  I have several reviews to share with you and, of course, more stories about the kiddos!  Here's to a fabulous weekend!

  1. I know I'm a few days late but I am so glad that you are back. We missed you.

    I've tried this novel ideal of tell baby girl to pick up her stuff...would you believe actually worked.

    I wish it worked for me as well.
