I think I've mentioned that I don't like clutter.  I've certainly mentioned it to my boys frequently.  I don't mind as much about the playroom, or even their bedroom, but I want the living room to stay tidy.

They're pretty good about keeping the common areas picked up, so I was somewhat mystified to find the same CD left out on the floor, day after day, when I hadn't heard it playing.

Guys, why is this Tchaikovsky CD sitting on the floor again?

Sheepish looks.

They've been taking it into their little CD player in the playroom and using the 1812 Overture as a soundtrack for their Lego pirate battles.

Love it.

Love it too!
I would so love to hear that game. That is one of my joys in motherhood, to spy on the kids games and hear them play characters etc! You say this, you say that.
Your guys are very imaginative! and music apprediation has obviously been a bit hit in your house.

Lego battles and the 1812 Overture. That's great! I just love it.

I can't stand clutter, either, but seem to get overwhelmed by it frequently. MOstly paper clutter- all the mail, paystub receipts, and other stuff that comes along. I really need to get a better system for that!

I love it!! Smart boys!! Your CD must have the 1812 Overture with the real cannons.


PS Love your new header. They are such handsome lads!
