Painting and purging
Matt came up with this fantastic idea that all the kids clothes needed to be organized. Like, this very moment.
I wasn’t thrilled.
But I, surprisingly, didn’t complain too much. Mostly because I knew that the Cassie who had ‘organized’ all that stuff prior wasn’t the Cassie of today who is actually a good organizer.
So basically it’s all my fault it was an absolute wreck of clothing.
However. I didn’t like this.
And the four hours it took us to organize all of that. BUT! Through it, we not only organized all the clothes, but I found a bunch of maternity clothes that I will NEVER EVER EVER EVER NEED AGAIN, that I have a wonderful friend in need of, boy winter coats that we will donate to the health center patients, we found the missing 9-12 month clothes for Audrey and a few winter coats for her and some old blankets and towels to donate to the Animal Rescue League.
So yah, yah, yah. It was beneficial. And maybe I feel a little better. And perhaps we didn’t have any official plans for the day, but still.
Was it fun?
Yah, no. It wasn’t. So thank god it’s done.
Though, during all this, Claire, Luca and Mae entertained themselves. At one point Mae was in jail, they were brave knights, they used lego play boxes as armor and I think I overheard something along the lines of “Super Darby” on the ceiling saving the day.
I think that’s my favorite part about my kids, their imagination.
But before the great purge, I had the kids paint some frames for the hallway. Audrey got to paint for the very first time, too.
At first she was all, WTF, ma?
Then Luca helped me bake bread and that was my Sunday afternoon.
