Dishes are piled up. Clean, but not yet put away. The living room is clean, but not quite. Big toys have been put away, but little Lego blocks and army men can still be seen throughout the room. By the time the kids go to bed at night, I am just too tired to do much about those things.
And besides, the kids' bedtime equals some me time. I'm willing to sacrifice certain things in my life, but don't anyone dare take away my me time!
Saturday night I finally found the pattern for a vest I had lost when my computer died. I knew right then that I would work on that vest once the kids went to bed. As I worked on that vest with episodes of Big Bang Theory in the background, I glanced around the room. I knew a few things still needed put away, but it finally occurred to me that the toys would take care of themselves.
To be more specific, the dinosaurs would take care of the misplaced toys.
This dinosaur will kindly
eat organize all of our Wii and DS games
This dinosaur, well I'm not sure what his job is.
I think the other, bigger toys have attacked him in protest!
For the record, none of these pictures were staged. This is exactly what I saw when I surveyed the room.
Until next time...
