Keeping It Real #1 Playroom

I wanted to start a new little series on keeping it real. Although I have organised most of the spaces in our home this doesn't mean that they don't get messy. So I wanted to share with you what some of these spaces do look like sometimes (well probably most of the time). As most of you know a house with young kids is almost impossible to keep neat and tidy. I can tidy up at the end of the day but by the next day it can be like a cyclone has gone through. When I had my first son I had really high expectations of myself and our house. I wanted my house to be neat and tidy all the time. I quickly realised that this wasn't going to happen. I had to learn to let go, seriously kids grow up so quick my oldest son starts school next year. My advice is enjoy the time when your kids are at home it is such a precious time and accept the fact the house on most days will look like a bomb has hit it. The mess will be there the next day.I don't want my kids to remember Mum was always too busy to play because she was always cleaning and tidying up. I also wanted to write this for other mums out there that say how does she do this? Is it like this all the time? Some of the organising blogs out there including mine give the readers a unrealistic perception that you can have young kids at home and your home looks like a display home all the time. I write my blog for me (it has become my little outlet) and for my readers.

So here is our playroom on a normal day
