So all that to say, our living room houses a lot of toys. You can see that I *tried* at one time to organize the madness. There is a toybox (mine when I was a kid) and a shelf. There are baskets. And there is too much crap everywhere, regardless of said "organizing." Here are the issues.
1- The kid never looks in the baskets. They are mostly where I throw bits and pieces of stuff when I am cleaning up.
2- She never looks in the toybox. It is mainly there to keep things hid away that aren't being used at the time. But that means they are hidden away forever. Except once a month when she empties the whole thing cause she remembers that stuff is in there.
3- There is a giant cardboard house in my living room. She doesn't play with it right now. But if it went away, she would definitely notice.
4- There is just too much stuff. I can't get rid of anything, since I have a 5 month old who I, in theory, will never have to buy a single toy for. Ever.
Someone help! I HATE looking at all this stuff. I know some toys out with 2 kids is just inevitable. But this is ridiculous.
Oh, and did you notice the baby zone in the middle of the floor? Yeah.
