nesting, maybe?

After completely overreacting to the kids' mess (which, granted, was spread all around the house), we cleaned the playroom and their bedroom (including vacuuming under the bunkbed). I've also instituted (not for the first time) a one-week ban on toys leaving the playroom. They can have one toy out of there at a time, and if I find it abandoned anywhere, it will be eaten by the gobble bag.

Now I just have to come up with some good threats that will get MY room cleaned.

how bout not cleaning your room = having to stay preggers for an extra week. that'd do it for me! ;-)

ha ha! I think perhaps it is more likely to work if I have some bit of control over the threat! (I'm not very good at lying to least not about trivial things.)
