*Wondering what The Ideal vs. The Real is? Click here for an intro.*
So yesterday I showed you the "Ideal" in Ethan's room, but today is the fun (and slightly embarrassing) bit!
So is it wrong that I'm looking at this and not thinking it's too bad? I mean, the sheet is off his bed ready to be changed. Izzy's shorts are on the floor. And a random game box. It has been worse, but this is what it tends to look like.
Just a few toys out.
The wardrobe is a little worse... The bags are my husband's old train sets that his mum dropped off recently. Izzy was allowed to play twice. With supervision.
The bottom of the wardrobe is where I keep the things for charity. I just went through some under bed boxes and found these that I hadn't used in years, so they're being purged!
This is the shelf in his wardrobe I couldn't share yesterday. And I have no excuse because the kids can't even reach up there. I get the books up and down!
I did have them on a lower shelf but they were always all out, so I made the book nook and rotate from here and the library now (and we have lots on the bookshelf downstairs, is that normal?)
Now for some secret storage. Which I will have to change once Ethan realises that I'm using up toy space for laundry.
The top drawer is odd socks (there are a LOT there!) with memory boxes underneath. Then swim nappies and wipes (when we bulk buy I just store them under his bed).
The bottom drawer is actually all my ironing. I feel a little guilty about storing it in his room...We moved here before I was pregnant with him, and it has always been in here, just now it's hidden in a drawer. What do other people do who don't have a laundry room?
The top is normally clear, unless my sister hasn't been round to iron...which would mean that the clothes would have multiplied so they also took over the top of the drawers!
So, my little boy's room on an average day! What about you? Similar? Anyone else have a permanent donate pile? I totally need more wicker baskets for that issue! :)
