So, Monday afternoon I looked into my 8 year old son's room and saw that my numerous requests for him to clean his room had not reached his ears.
Lessons need to be learned and threats needed to have follow through. While Bug was at school, this mama took a box of big, black garbage bags and cleaned his room her way. He may or may not be thrilled with what he begins to discover are no longer in his possession.
I think the lesson has been learned because the remaining toys have been picked up since AND...his bed has been made every morning before school...
And, side note, Jellybean has been making her bed each morning before school too...Lesson learned x 2!!! Woo hoo!
