Sometime during the night my son dropped his retainer behind his bed. This morning he was taking so much time in his room I went in to help get it out. He has a captain's bed so I started pulling things off the top of the bed so as to pull the mattress up. Oh my goodness.
Does anyone have a bulldozer we can use? I cannot believe the accumulation of beanie babies, note cards, books, tools of all kinds (scissors, etc.) and STUFF that has piled up. We got the retainer out and I confiscated his iTouch. It, and anything else electronic are off limits until he creates some order out of chaos. I suspect I'll be posting a lot of Freecycle offers next week.
The funny thing is that this is the kid who wants to go to the Air Force Academy. Maybe there he'll learn what SPARSE is . . .
