The No Toys Saga Continues!

Well this is day two and my daughter doesn't want to budge on putting her toys away. I asked her a few times if she was ready to clean up or if she was ready to get her toys back and she looks at me thoughtfully and say no not yet mommy. Really I feel so bad about this but at the same time I am telling my self if we go through 1 week with no toys but get 18 years of compliance out of her then that will be great. The one thing though that is so weird is that she has never in her life been so calm and happy as she has the past two days with no toys. It is crazy! I hope you ladies are having a great week if you have ever expierienced this before share your story!

No more Toys!!

I know this is a silly title but that is how I am feeling today. My daughter has decided for almost a week that she doesn't want to clean her room. Which normally I just shrug it off and eventually d it myself. Well not anymore and after her screaming at me for an hour this morning that she didn't want to clean it. She officiall has no toys in her room I took everything that was on her floor and threw it away. (Well put it intrash bags and stuffed it away where she can't find it. We had a little fireside chat and I let her know that she would not get to watch tv all day since she didn't have toys she can either read her books or she can sleep and then of course part of th day we will be learning so that is taken care of. It was probably the hardest thing for me but I know I have to do it for her to know I am serious and I am not going to argue any more I am just going to do it. Well ladies we are getting back to scool now I will have pictures later on my homeschool blog.
