toy monster

i told the kids that the toy monster might come tonight to feast on any toys that didn't get put away. as a warning, i told nikki that the toy monster would check under the beds for toys because he knows that some little people like to cheat at cleaning up. two minutes later :
max - mom!! nikki's putting all of my toys under her bed!

So funny--I laughed out loud!! I like the toy monster idea. I usually come up with a big garbage sac and that's enough to scare them into cleaning it up!

I totally snorted at that one! She is too smart. Watch out Max!

I like the garbage bag idea Summer!

My Mom did the garbage bag too, but I think a toy monster would be more fun at this age. Nikki sounds like my kids-thinking wait a minute I know what to do!
