While J. was gone, I decided to give FlyLady another try and now that he is home again my plan is in full swing.
Today, I steam cleaned the carpets that I was certain would never look decent again and they now look……remarkable decent 🙂
I have been decluttering room by room and getting the stuff out of the house to friends and charities.
All this new found space and order has given the kids (and me) some renewed creativity. My daughter was lamenting the fact that she didn’t have a treasure chest like her brother’s which led to me cutting up a cardboard box, shaping it, and turning it silver with duct tape. She took over from there with the decorating and filling.
K’Nex weapons made by my son.
Tiger claws (instead of Wolverine)
Tiger bow and arrow
While he was all about the weapons, my daughter made a picture frame and a picture to go in it. It is her as her alter ego- a cat named “Sunshine”.
After K’nex, it was time to be a kitty. And have a broken leg. The toilet paper didn’t hold up that well and led to us getting out the real bandages…
Finally, they made a boat out of an old container, a popsicle stick and some paper. After testing it in the sink and finding it seaworthy, it went into the bath. Man overboard!
