I have found the perfect task to keep these kiddos busy for thirty or so minutes every day. The car wash.
I just send them out into the garage with wet rags and they scrub their little hearts out. It isn't necessarily super effective- but they actually get a lot of dirt off- and they stay happily busy for awhile!
Here's the upstairs kiddo/guest bath. The whole matching set is from a friend in Toledo who was moving and getting rid of it :) Who ever thought I'd have a matching bathroom?!? The kids love it.
favorite part of the house. This is where the toys stay. They aren't allowed downstairs or in the boys bedroom once bed time comes - or the toy monster comes and gobbles them up. I love having space that we don't have to clean every night. I can shut the door and put the kids to bed without a mess at their feet,
