Now that Hallowe'en is over, the kids are already starting to think about the winter - how they will go sledding in the snow, and how and where we will celebrate the winter holidays.
Today we took a first step - and purged a heap-ton of old toys. Broken? Missing pieces? Too babyish? GONE GONE GONE.
I have an large cardboard box, a large IKEA bag and a smaller box cleared out. That was the first pass. I didn't touch stuffed animals, or the weird bin of crap next to Ben's bed.
Still lots to go - since it doesn't look like I've made a dent.
