Journaling reads: Aiden had been playing with almost none of this toys but there were too many of them and they were everywhere. We took every single toy out of the room and put them in the living room. Then we painted your bedroom . . .
Now for the best test: We kept these toys out of your room for a day or two and let you see what it teels like to have a clutter-free space.
It worked . . .
You guys played in those empty cubbies. Your clean bedroom became your favorite spot. And when I asked Aiden to pick just the toys he most wanted to keep he picked a few things and told me to donate the rest!
