Hooks and cups and plates ... oh, my!

Anybody wondering how I'm doing, keeping my house in order?

Well, you will be glad to know that my first purchase was lots and lots of hooks! Everything has gone vertical - the beds, the places we hang towels, where we put shoes ... and it has worked out really nicely.

One of the other genius ideas, that I initially blew off and now has been life altering - is having a cup and plate identified for every child (some color code - I just wrote their names on them). It is truly amazing.

I always know who has not cleared their stuff from the table. I thought I would be able to just keep up .. I mean, that's what I've been doing. *soft chuckle*

Genius. You other moms. Genius.

Yes! IKEA has these great plastic kids plates and cups, and the set comes with 6 different colors. Even my 2-year-old knows what color her plate and cup (and bath towel and toothbrush) are.

I saw those! But they were just too small for my older kids. They did have some bigger ones, but they only came in FOUR colors. eeerrrrrggggg

I am trying to come up with some quick-witted comment with a "hooker" reference... Still thinking...
