Simplifying the "Trash Closet" With Guest Photography

Simplifying update...trash closet cleaned out. To answer the obvious question...yes, those are our knives on the middle of the lower shelf. And yes, they are there because there is no other place that I've found that is out of Bub's curious reach.

Case in point. One day last week apparently I left my camera within the reach of The Southern Gentleman. Here is the proof...


Not bad...he got most of his face.

But I think I need to teach him a little about appropriate camera angles. It is such an attractive shot up the nose.

Then he started taking "still lifes." Glad I cleaned off the table right after breakfast that day! FYI those are sparkles on the tablecloth not crumbs.

But here is the proof that nothing is safe when Mom is out of the room. I've got to give SG points for "most creative tattling" on his brother. Impressive.

Now you see why the knives are in the closet. Safety first.

I get ya! I came upstairs the other day to find Baby Sister, 3 steak knives and a bunch of massacred bananas. You are whirlwind of organization lately....perhaps some of that breeze will blow this way!

Love people who show it, and tell it, like it is and I need all the organizing tips I can get. Reading them keeps me from having to do anything!

My kids' dry Cheerios always ended up all over the floor. I used to wonder why I didn't just open the box and throw them there in the first place.

Thanks again for stopping by and please come back anytime!

Okay, I was here earlier but got kicked out... darn blogger... :D

The pix are so cute. And instant gratification being able to download to the computer instead of sending them to be developed! :D I especially love the tattle-tale picture! Ha! Yep, knives up high in the closet definitely seems like a good idea to me!

My cousin used to keep her candy in the little cabinet over the refrigerator until she came in one day to find her 2 year old on top of the refrigerator with his little hiney hanging out of that cabinet. I am glad those days are long over for me... I don't think I could take the stress. :D

Grammy had to laugh out loud at the Southern Gentleman's pics...he may have a future as a photographer if he can turn the camera around the right way! Can't believe he caught Bub in the act...maybe you should get him one of those "hat cameras?" And the closet looks fantastic! Have you been reading Fly Lady again? You seem inspired!
