Yesterday

Remember how I said we were gonna purge the Pirate's room? Well, we took EVERY SINGLE THING (except his pirate ship bed) out of the room. We sorted all the toys and got rid of everything broken (and one thing that wasn't broken. Seriously, do not buy that. It is the worst possible kind of suck.) We moved some toys that weren't played with to the basement to see if they'd be missed. We replaced the giant falling apart dresser with a smaller non- falling apart one. (Not sure how that's gonna work, it's much smaller, and tippy.) We rented a carpet cleaner and cleaned the carpet. We put all the furniture back in a different spot.

I'm a bad blogger, I forgot to take before pictures, but here's an idea from a messy day. (He was home sick that day.)








Here's the after. I think the room is twice as big now.
















Oh, and I cleaned the bathtub and shower too. And then I took a nice long bath and read.

  1. I'm impressed. That's a huge transformation! I love that dragon - what's the circular thing?

  2. The dragon is a dinosaur bank. You put money in his mouth and it rolls down to the belly- the round part. Is that the circular thing you mean?

  3. OK, so that's pretty impressive. What will be even more impressive is keeping it in such a pristine state! My kids are much older and it's still impossible !! Good luck ...

  5. I don't want my kids to grow up too fast but I was soooo glad when my son moved out of the "little toy" stage. All those Thomas the Tank engines and Hot Wheel cars made me crazy!

    My daughter does not play with toys often but she like paper everywhere...little folded pieces of paper, paper strips that she has cut, etc.

    You must feel so much better now that that room is under control. In that first pic it was hard to see the Pirate with all his stuff surrounding him.

  6. Ti, that was a particularly bad day. It was often bad, but not THAT bad. He was home sick that day and just destroying the room and I let him.

    Last night he happily played in the clean room for hours, and even put everything away at bed time.

  8. It looks so nice! We did this to my son's room a couple of months of go and it felt so good afterwards.

  9. Very impressive! Wanna come clean my office for me? It will be interesting to see if he misses those "basement" toys.

  10. Wow! It looks wonderful! I really need to break down and go through everything in my son's room too, I just can't get motivated to start!

  11. Let me just say that his room is downright pleasant now. You can sit in there on the floor. He can find things. It's so nice. We're thinking about doing our room this weekend!
