And there usually are explanations for every out of place thing. Really.
1- Art stool on top of the couch- why? Because my 15 month old was using it as a stepping stool to climb the end tables that particular day
2- The coffee table in front of the (still unused) fireplace. A few reasons for this one- we haven’t yet figured out if we want to use the fireplace as woodburning or get a gas insert; we don’t have time/ money to fix it up enough to use it; there’s no room for a coffee table AND play area; and to keep the baby from crawling into the fireplace and
eating creosote getting dirty.
3- Dumped out toy chest and 15 month old laying on top of toys. To occupy him long enough so his big sister and I can make some crafts once in a while.
4- Couch covered with laundry baskets, blankets, and tutus. I dunno.
5- Laundry to be folded. Oh wait, this explains #4.
6- Tissues restuffed into the box. You know your toddler rips ’em out of the box too!!!
You know it’s true. Admit it. Join the club. We’re waiting for you…
