If you are extremely clean and organized, do your kids share your passion...or is it a constant struggle to keep them on top of things?
My kids have so far taken after me. They couldn't believe that some of their friends' houses are messy and disorganized...and couldn't believe the toys and clothes all of their friends' floor. They've told me that they are so happy they have a clean house and room to come home to.
But, perhaps the funniest thing was when my son and his cousin were cleaning up his bedroom after playing all day. Apparently my nephew was just throwing all of the toys in one bin, and my son kept telling him that they didn't belong in that bin. After the third time, he dumped the bins out and said, "ok, now we need to start all over again". My nephew was in tears, and I had to explain that my son wasn't trying to be mean...he's just doing what I would have done to him! And this is coming from the boy who loves frogs and dirt and can't keep a pair of jeans or shoes for longer than half a season!
