Yesterday, M and E provided this little tidbit of entertainment . . .
E: We cleaned up P's room AGAIN.
M: Yeah. We cleaned it up before and they just messed it up again.
E: So we put the Legos up high where they can't reach them.
M: They can only play with them if they ask us first.
(side not from Me -- I have put most of M & E's toys on a shelf above their reach, so they have to ask for them. This is to help them learn to put one thing back before playing with the next. Otherwise their room turns into a disaster.)
E: We want her room to stay clean.
This is where I left the room, praising their effort and trying to stiffle my giggles.
