We were sorting toys today, trying to get organized. Unfortunately, the kids and I have the same "we love to make messes but dislike cleaning them up" gene. So my house is nearly always a mess. But there comes a point when even I can't stand the dump-and-mix status of their toys any longer. That's when I start with the threats.
If you guys cannot take care of your toys, maybe I should give them to kids who will take care of them.
Then, inevitably, they beg and plead for that toy they haven't played with in months.
That is, until I pulled out this.
She's seen better days.
The kids said, "Mommy, we really think you should give her to a girl who would love her."
So far my craigslist ad that says "Wanted: child who can love a beat up rag doll with a yarn mohawk" hasn't gotten any responses... :)
