purging and robots

August 1, 2014

brave birthdaybrave birthdaybrave birthdaybrave birthdaybrave birthdaybrave birthdayI’ve been spending time this week purging through each room. If  I look at a room, and can’t mentally pack it quickly in my head, it makes me itch, and a lot of rooms were starting to make me itch, so I finally got around to organizing a bit. Spring was busy getting ready for my book release that I missed that spring cleaning window, so I’m doing it now before we start a new school year. I still have a ways to go, but it feels good to already have gone through some nooks and crannies of our home.

Our biggest project of late is getting ready for Brave’s party. She changed from a transformer themed one to a robot party (because transformers are robots), so we’ve been birthday prepping. I’m letting them take care of the backdrop and they’ve been doing lots and lots of robots. I love seeing the different robots they’re making; that bacon and pancake robot above is my fave. I love the stuff kids come up with!

    I know what you mean. We’re moving at the end of the month and I’ve been purging too. It seems like every time we move apartments we get rid of more stuff. This time we’re letting go of old furniture that’s been gifted to us by family and planning to choose each new piece with care. Its a relief to let go.

    What fun! My friend Annie introduced me to your blog and I just adore seeing what activities you do with your little ones. My little girl is turning one this month, so I’m nervous about throwing her first party. Seems like you’re a seasoned pro though! Look forward to following your blog. 🙂

    ‘Tis the season for purging? I’ve had the itch to de-clutter lately. Kids’ clothes and toys fell victim first-cleared out about half of their clothes and a third of their toys. I dread the day when they start noticing and I can’t just de-clutter their stuff as I think reasonable. Next on to my stuff. 😛

      My kids know I do it. They know if they leave things not in its proper place, it’s fair game to be tossed or donated. They’ve shed many tears when I go through my purging moments.

  • Such cuteness. And such beautiful photography! Love how you captured the joy and concentration on their little faces.
