Team Up Thursday | Chaos.

I came home to find a tornado had apparently gone through his room today. I caught him on camera just as he was jumping on the bed (from that dresser???). He has permission to jump on his bed (when company isn't over) but not from the dresser to the bed! He also hasn't watched any TV in over a week. Why?

He doesn't want to clean up the toys in his room. And now there is only more...

All I said was, "when you clean up this pile, you can watch a show." That was last Tuesday.
Mine on the left, Joanne on the right.


So the floor is a bit messy; but it had been so peaceful here, we've listened to lots of different music and he has spent a lot of time playing, reading and creating. He hasn't asked once to watch a show.


That's how it should be.

Hey, if a little mess leads them to create and read, I'm all for it! Great dip!

Such a familiar scene. Sounds like the mess has ended up being a good thing.

I love your incentive to clean the room. If I could my husband to play along then maybe it would work in my house too. LOL Great combo, love the chaos all over the floor planned or not. ;)

it's amazing that those threats sometimes just don't work, huh? happens here all the time with owen. now i threaten him with early bedtime & that seems to do the trick:).

I love that your threat of no TV hasn't even affected him. It is a win-win for Mommy! No TV is a happy day around our house too...

And I love the rule, "jump on bed when company is not over!" That is great!
