I watched my kiddos for a couple of weeks to see what they really played with and then yesterday afternoon I went in with two bags. One for trash and one for give away. And that was that. My girls now have one castle, their kitchen, one small basket of baby toys/stuffed animals and their shopping cart. Mister now has his race cars, his tracks up high in his closet, his little tool set, a football and train table/castle. That's it. I know that as soon as Sis is a little older I will be able to get rid of that basket of baby toys and they will each get to keep a doll and a stuffed animal.
Maybe this sounds mean, but I really don't think it was. I was tired of spending so much time in a mess or cleaning up. My kids have been BLESSED beyond measure and that is exactly how I want them to feel... blessed not entitled. We explained to them where their other toys were going and there were a few complaints, not going to lie but they did end up understanding. Their toys went to a family in need and now I think they are able to enjoy the toys they do have even more.
So that's that. Yay for clean rooms, happy kids and happy mama's!
