so I was wondering  ( and I think this more pertains to mommies of littler babies 9monthes to about 5-6) are there toys around your house?!?! Possible hidden, or just a random toy here or there?!
We are currently with the in-laws and Both My  MIL and FIL freak out if a toy is left out in the living room for more than 10 minutes! I have a one year old, and sometimes picking up tos jsut doesn't make it into my day! at least not til we clean up for the night!
SO do you have toys around or are you like my In-laws and no toys can be seen!?!?
Should I be cleaning up after my son everytime he puts a toy down, cuz I'm not sure if I have te energy for that! LOL!

And ther shouldn't be a poll, so if there is please ignore! Thanks!

There are toys all over my house. The kiddos share a bedroom for now so half the toys are in there and half in the living room. I don't really care if they are out or not but I think alot of older people are more particular about their house being clean.

I have 2 boys that are 4 and 5.  Now, all of their toys are in their room and if they bring them out, they put them back.  When they were a year old though, I had their toys out, so I can watch them more closely as they played.  They didn't get the toys back into their room until they were trained to stay in their beds at bedtime and not get up and play.

Now our daughter is here, she's almost 7 months old, her stuff is everywhere, but she doesn't have her own room yet.

My dd is 8 months and there are toys everywhere until I put her down to bed at night and pick them up. Or if company is coming over i will pick them up. But other than that im not going to keep picking them up everytime she throws them down.

If I picked up toys everytime one of my kids layed it down I would be picking up toys all day every day.  I let them stay until I know they are finished playing and I make one big clean up.  I dont see picking them up one at a time I do it all at one time.

Haha my 10 month old owns the living room. We have a toybox in the corner for her since her room is a shoebox. I pick up once it gets out of hand but I don't make the floor completely spotless.

I don't let my kids have toys downstairs unless it's outside, but they are 5 and 7, the whole upstairs is theirs I don't want to see toys.

See I don't care either, I mean if He isn't playing with them, I'll get him to put then away, or sometimes I'll just grab them! And obviously if it is too messy i will clean up, but they freak if like one toys is out, or even worse a part of a toy!  I just don't get it! I hope when I have grandchildren I don't turn out like that! *crosses fingers* and if there is a food mess I'm on top of it! just to clarify!
