Blimey, I thought my kids rooms were bad untill I read some of these posts!!! My 2 are messy but I make them tidy/clean their rooms once a week, not alowed out, no tv/computer untill done to my satisfaction. Feel a bit contradictory at times because I'm not the most tidiest person myself, but then I see some of my friends homes and I feel quite clean!
I have a magnet that says " Tidying the house while the kids are still growing is like shovelling snow while it's still snowing" How true??
