it's tough to be my kid...

speaking of being an invisible mom...i do believe that the sound of my voice registers at a decible that my kids can't actually hear what i'm saying. (tara, if you are reading this...let me know how that works and if it's possible...maybe it's something that falls on the Y chromosome."

anywho, after days upon days of telling the boys that they needed to pick up their toys and put them where they actually go, i did something i have done many times before. only this time...it will be more serious. i took every single solitary toy out of their room. every video, every video game, every block, every car...all completely gone. and now they will have to ask for something specific to play with...one at a time. welcome to the library of toys where you have to check out one toy and when you are done, you may return it for another.

now i'm hoping this will be two fold in it's purpose. 1.) to teach them that if they don't listen and obey, they lose priviledges and 2.) now i can sort out what stays and what goes and what is trash and what can already be packed up for when we move. (and in a couple of weeks, our house will go back on the market...please don't ask me why i'm insane. i just am.

and with that, i'm off to have some breakfast, catch a little Beth Moore Bible study on the TV and take sissy's toys away from her brothers.

I think you're right about it being a Y chromosome thing! Andrew has a hard time hearing me in a normal conversation decibel range!

That's awesome. I guess the only problem with me doing that would be that then I'd have to pick up the toys. I hate to tell you this though... I'm not sure it's the Y chromosome...
