Who’s watched Tidying Up with Marie Kondo? I see you raising your hand. Don’t worry. I caught the bug too. It’s kind of like watching Hoarders, only better, because she gives simple tips and a process to follow. So you bet your bottom, I got on board. And I knew just where to start…. Tidying up a little boys room.
Not just any little boy. Mine of course. Since he just turned THREE.. and basically made the switch from 2T to 3T what felt like overnight. I’m not crying. You’re crying.
So I got to work. And guess what? It only took me about two hours TOPS. That was with a snack break. I followed her tips exactly. Pulled out EVERY single item in his closet and drawers. Went through one by one deciding… not only if it fit… but if it brought me joy. Since I still dress him, I wasn’t keeping any clothes that didn’t bring me joy to see on him.
