toys WERE picked up

Michelle, have you done the "spoonful of sugar" routine and made putting toys away a game? I don't know if I ever was terribly successful, but when my kids were little we were in a tiny house and there were a lot of toys. When we started putting a bunch away and getting out some "new" again every so often, I think it got easier.

I agree with Michelle and should have said, Kat - congratulations on getting up on your own! Having to call the fire brigade, or thinking of JoyBell's story some years ago of collapse (before her corrective surgery) and the threat that Hildebrand was going to have to go get the wheelbarrow - there are some indignities you want to avoid if possible!
