Lydia's Room

This Tackle has been a long time coming. Almost a month ago, I tackled Lydia's closet with the intention doing her room the next week. Obviously, that did not happen. I am happy to say that the closet still looks good, and that this weekend we finally got to the rest of the room.
Before, it was truly a disaster area. Lydia and I spent quite a bit of time in this room. I even made her crawl under the bed and get everything out.


Kellen even helped out. It was worth it! It now looks like this. Notice it didn't get all done on the same day. (Lydia has different clothes on) I was hoping to do more de-cluttering (code for get rid of toys), but settled for just having things put away.

To see what everyone else is tackling or to add your own stop by 5 Minutes for Mom.

  2. I think it is SO AWESOME when the kids help with tasks like this. I've been making mine help weed out toys for years, and that's been a big bonus.

    What a cute room! ;)

  5. Every Tuesday, Wednesday & Friday has become a "Tackle It Day" since I went part-time. I've cleaned Jude & Elise's rooms & closets, the storage room in the basement, my craft area & the dreaded garage. I should have been taking pictures, but I didn't. I figure in a week or so I should be caught up...or maybe everything will need cleaned out again.

    Well, Lydia's room looks great and I swear she has grown since I saw you guys last. We are planning to come down in a week or so...or this week-end? I can't remember.

  6. What a great job, it looks wonderful. Kids roioms are among the hardest because they tend to want to hang on to everything. Good for you for getting them to help.
