Surprise! Stripes and Plaid?!?!?! Obviously not.
(And yes, I did make him change...)
But wait, I was surprised yet again! After we came home and made our first tomato sandwiches of the summer, J. announced that he needed to clean out and organize his room. This is my completely unorganized child who kicks his dirty socks all over the room and stuffs toys, papers, and books wherever they may go. When I heard those magic words, I IMMEDIATELY stopped what I was doing and jumped on board. Oh. my. word. We threw out four trash bags of broken toys and random papers. J. was so proud of his hard work and put together a box of toys to take to Helping Hands. It actually made me quite sad to see him put all of his "mens" (what he called his action figures) in there. "Mom, I'm getting older now. I don't need play with those anymore." But I think he is rather proud of his room now and wants to keep it this way... and I quote, "for always".
One son's bedroom down, another one and a playroom to go! Wish
