So, in case you haven’t figured this out yet, I am obsessed with love things that make my life easier. Enter the brown boxes. I bought these last summer in a moment of sheer brilliance. Well, maybe not brilliance, but something. Anyway, I bought one for each of the kids and they sit on top of their dressers. Every night, I pick out their clothes and shoes for the next day and put them in the brown boxes. The next day, when it’s time to get dressed, Max and Ava run into their room and dress themselves completely without much assistance needed from me. I still have to get Lia dressed, but at least everything is in one place! And, we put a bucket in Max & Ava’s room so the kids can put their dirty clothes in it instead of on the floor or in the bathroom.
