Kids in a cupboard. They were super helpful in the assembly of this cabinet, as you can imagine.
We only lost one screw, though, so I'm calling it a success.
I've been looking for a place to store all the kids' craft supplies. We've been doing a lot of coloring, painting, and practicing with scissors lately, and my kitchen desk drawers were stuffed to the brim, to the point where things would fall out the back side of the drawer when I attempted to open it. Then I'd have to either ignore it, or remove the drawer completely to retrieve whatever fell back there. It was a mess.
When I found this hutch on sale from Target a couple of weeks ago, I figured it was a good time to ask for an early birthday present.
As a side, that race track in the living room? I bought it for $5 from a yard sale last summer, and just got it out for them to play with last week.
Best $5 I ever spent, seriously.
They (especially Nicholas) have played with the race track for an average of 4 hours a day for the past six days. And I can "play" with them simply by picking which car is mine and watching and cheering from my spot on the couch. Fantastic toy.
And yes, those are hot wheels cars under there.
I saw a motto I think I'm going to adopt about housekeeping when you have young children:
"Keep the house clean enough to be healthy, messy enough to be happy.
Clean enough to be sanitary, messy enough to be sane."
Yep, works for me.
