Landon went into the boys' room today and I had to get him out before he destroyed something.

My boys also keep their rooms much cleaner since we made the playroom in the basement a few years ago and moved all the games and legos and such down there.

Thanks ladies. I think the problem we may have is that the playroom and their bedroom are the same thing. We recently moved them to the FROG (finished room above the garage). It is 300 square feet so it is a pretty big room and all of the toys are kept up there. They just don't put things away and it drives me batty. I think I'll probably do one big clean again and then go up there at bedtime with them each night to have them pick up what has been played with that day. I guess I need to be disciplined about it because as it is I don't *have* to go up there at all these days since they go to bed on their own. Sigh. Maybe one day they'll get this figured out!

Kristy, I'm impressed that your boys go to bed on their own.

Unless I help them out, they usually end up doing more playing then cleaning!

Mine still want a parent to tuck them in too. We do prayers and such at bedtime, plus we have the little one to get to bed too.

I'm glad it's not just my kid, Lisa!

I hope you don't mind if I butt in, Laura :). Devin is 13 in April and I don't plan on moving back his bedtime past 9 during the week. Its a struggle for him to get up at 6:45 as it is. He also still likes me to tuck him in occasionally.
