But I know that this, too, shall pass.
I'll be back to be productive in this thread later. :-)
I wish there was but we tried shelves in the closet and they weren't strong enough to hold the clothing (they fell on top of us when we put them up, I'm glad the kids weren't hurt). I have most of their clothing hung, I'm wondering if it would be practical to hang everything but PJs/undies but what to do with the baby clothes I started to bring down/buy (I'm not due until Feb but I gave a LOT away after DD2 and I don't know what I have so I'm buying a little at a time, it seems useless to put them up then drag them down), they don't sale infant hangers over here.
I did get the covers out for the bookcases we use as dressers (dressers made life worse because then it was a game for them to see what all was in there) and I put them up. She hasn't dumped them since I put them up. I'm trying to get DD1 to keep the room closed but at 3 1/2 she forgets a lot.
I'm also debating for her birthday investing in some dress up clothes, DD1 never got into dress up but DD2 seems to want to get dressed in different outfits (then she always goes back to the first one she was dressed in!) so I'm thinking that might help keep the clothes up if she has something that she can dress up in whenever she wants.
Ok, I'm exhausted but I'm going to try to do at least 4-15 minute sessions tomorrow morning before we leave for our fun day. We are going to Ryukyu Mura tomorrow which is a traditional Okinawan village, so I don't want housework hanging over my head when I'm trying to enjoy myself!
ETA- My motto for the day either tends to be "This too shall pass" or "someday you are going to miss this" I know one day Ill look back and miss walking into a room full of little clothing all over the place with my girls giggling because they got into it.. but right now its hard to imagine missing the extra work that I always end up having to do.
