Welcome to Diamonds in the Rough, the inconsistent scribblings of a preacher's wife, mom, and city girl happily out of her element. If you are a first-time guest here, please read "Why Diamonds?"
I see some space on the floor ;)Our saying in this house is:Don't put it down, put it awayIf it doesn't have a place, THROW IT AWAY!!!There's hope, don't worry :)
Yes, there is hope. She is rooming with me next month. And that is <i>not</i> going to be tolerated. *wink*
Unfortunately our entire house looks like that right now. I'm afraid we'll be spending much of Christmas break cleaning! :-(
And patience, experience; and experience, hope: (Romans 5:4 KJV)I have two daughters. One kept her side of the room clean and neat. Her grandbaby is only seven months old. The other's room was similar to this. She has grandchildren age 3 to 11 and they have a ball at grandma's house. There are rules and limits, but they are based on safety, not ambiance.There is always hope, but there is always reality!!
yes.. Julia was worse.. There is hope..Kristy
Oh Sally. I have a similar problem with my Grace. Although, I'd have to say your picture looks tidy compared to hers! I get angry. I get apathetic. I ask God to help. We get no where! Now she is sick with a fever. I should go in there and clean it up, but I get so frustrated. I want to toss it all. Anyway, if you come up with a solution, let me know!Jennjenn4him@gmail.com
Our youngest use to be a messy, but then all of the sudden something clicked and she is much better, although her definition of neat & mine may never be quite the same. For some reason folding clothes neatly is a concept too high to grasp.
I had been inspecting Iran for nuclear weapons. Now I see the results of the testing in your child's room.Look at the bright side, there maybe help to make things right after it is declared a disaster area.
Do you remember this? http://www.homeschoolblogger.com/diamondsintherough/349306/ Seems she has improved a <i>little</i> at least, no?
Yes there is hope for her - when it's her home and her room. Both our children had rooms like your picture, now that they are married with children of there own, there homes are wonderfully clean! Lynn Marie
