If you have kids you surely have seen the book series "If you give a mouse a cookie..." The same author also writes "If you give a moose a muffin..." and the list goes on...
This morning felt like the mom version of this story& I decided to call it "If you ask your mom a question..."
(you may be asking yourself, or not, but lets pretend you are)
Let me tell you! The conversation started like this...
Lily: "Mom, can I put my polly pockets in the basement so Archer won't get them?"
Me: "Well, I really don't want you to keep putting toys into the basement. What you SHOULD do is clean out your cabinet and get rid of toys you don't use so you can put your polly pockets in there."
So the story goes... "If you clean out your cabinet, you will need to find space for the art supplies that are overtaking the cabinet."
Which of course led me to reorganize the art supplies in my hallway closet. That led me to clean out the WHOLE hallway closet that was overtaken by unused shoes. I needed to put those shoes into the garage sale bags. Of course that meant getting rubber bands to keep the pairs together.
The rubber bands were in my silverware drawer that, upon further digging, was a big mess. So I cleaned that drawer out too.
In the end, I have three de-cluttered spaces but sheesh! If you would have told me that from the
get-go, I would have just stuck the polly pockets in the basement.
Now, on to my post!
I was lucky enough to get the heads up for a deal she was running. Pin the polka dot dress onto your pinterest board& she would send you the pattern for free.
So last week I received her dress pattern& sewed it up asap.
