Over the last few days I have packed up several boxes of toys. "Oh, the tears, the hysteria of the children upon waking up" you may think. Uh, no. So far no one has noticed that the workbench, sit and spin, and Little People bus have disappeared from view. Nor has anyone noticed the lack of matchbox cars, kitchen utensils, and half the puzzle collection.

Additionally, clean up at the end of the day is so much easier. Once we move, I'm going to be hard pressed to take everything back out again and find homes for them. I'm sure I eventually will, but it won't be at the top of the unpacking list. And for now I'm going to enjoy the minimalism while it lasts.
