I pull dusty toys
out of the dark basement.
I want more free space.

I can sell these toys.
My boys forgot about them.
They are history.

I get sidetracked--Damn!
Ethan falls in love again.
Story of my life.

Our Haiku made me laugh! Adam just (as in last week) went through our storage in the basement and pulled out toys from 3 years ago and is playing with them most every day now too!

No, the story of my life! Sj is so good at digging out the toys that have disappeared, I have to resort to just putting them in my car and dropping them to ARC as soon as possible!

Honey Mommy said...

Well, good luck getting rid of those toys now!

It's so hard to declutter with kids, isn't it?

Check out my blog, I gave you an award because your blog is great!

Hahaha.....Maybe when Christmas rolls around you can get them to pick some toys to donate since they will most likely be getting new stuff?! I know of someone who does that with their children every year.

That's happened to me a couple of times. I started cleaning out stuff for the charity box and find things that were on my Wish List (photo frames, etc.) Duh, no need to Wish for it - I already had it!
