Or at least it feels that way! My house is always a mess. I can seriously clean and by the end of the day it looks like I didn't do a thing! It's so frustrating. I think I just have way to much clutter and need to get rid of a lot of things! And now I have a desk set up in the living room with Tristan's school things so its a little more crowded. I hate getting rid of things, especially the kids things because they all have a memory, but I need to do something different! My house is way to small I think. Any tips to de-clutter? (aside from donating things to a second hand store, which I plan on doing :)
And, when it comes to my almost 5 year old, it feels like I'm definitely losing control. With his school starting school soon I'm a little worried if homeschooling is going to work out. He has been such a little monster lately! Yesterday I told him to pick up his room and he told me no! So I asked him what he said and he goes "N-O". I don't know what to do with him. I don't like spanking, time outs occasionally work but he's back to the same old not long after time outs. Taking away a favorite toy doesn't even phase him. I'm hoping once school starts he will be busy and distracted so we won't have as many problems but I need to figure out a punishment that will be effective before school starts (which is the 20th!) Any ideas?
