I have to admit that I am slightly obsessive about making our bed each morning.
And even my husband, who used to make fun of this obsession, has now embraced it. In fact, these days he might be even more obsessive than me!
Most of the time, our house is pretty neat. We also require our kids to make sure their room is tidy before they leave for school.

During our great purge I got rid of 4 huge bins of toys, and there is still more purging yet to be done. I have noticed, however, that when we keep their room clean and I do make them help with thisthey actually play much better.
Just like me, they can find the things they are looking for and focus on just one thing at a time instead of being overwhelmed by 5, toys staring at them from the floor. It makes my husband happy. There are far too many days when Husband comes home at 5: For the record, he never says anything negative and will dig right in and help with dinner, then do the dishes.Your mind is a gift, a remarkable work of nature.
