Clean your rooms!

Piper had the day off from school on Tuesday for Veteran's Day. I thought it would be nice to get out of the house and do something fun, so I surprised the kids and took them to see Madagascar 2. The movie was pretty cute and the kids enjoyed dancing and singing along...we like to move it, move it!

When we got home I asked them to clean their rooms since it looked like tornadoes had ripped through them. There was a lot of moaning and groaning, but not a whole lot of cleaning. After asking/yelling for the 7,000 time I locked them in their rooms. The people that lived here before us must have had kids because they installed eyehook locks outside the kids doors...lol! The locking them in went over great, er not so much. After about an hour I heard Piper call me and ask me to come check her room. I walked in and found this...





I wish I had taken a before picture so you could fully appreciate how wrecked her room was. I love how when she cleans her room she has her little "stations" that she likes to make fancy. Don't you just love all of the blankets, nap mats, sleeping bags, etc. on her bed. I swear under the brightly colored 1970's sheet there is a shabby chic quilt that matches her room perfectly. Anyway, she was very proud of her accomplishment!



I realized that I hadn't heard much of anything from Dax's room for a while. I unhooked the lock and attempted to open the door. I didn't get very far and had to stick my head in to see why. This is what I found...



Not much was done in Dax's room...




I am kinda stumped on why he chose to fall asleep on the floor when his bead was relatively clear. Funny kid!

I love that story! It sounds exactly like what Zoie and Tobin would do. I seriously need to put some thought into locks on the OUTSIDE of the doors.

Wow! Piper has the designer's eye! Everything looks so clean and fancy! And Dax did exactly what Trevor does whenever I ask him to do anything around the house-- he goes in his room an falls asleep. Boys!
