I can’t take it anymore!
The kids have taken over our home office!
Shortly after we moved in 7 years ago, Bill installed the shelves and crown molding in here. The shelves are overstocked with our favorite books, a vintage bourbon decanter collection, and family photos.But recently our three little kiddies insist on escaping to our office and taking over the space. I’d be okay with that except for the trail that they leave behind.
This purple paper mache pig is adorable, but it doesn’t belong on this shelf under my favorite art books.
This book is funny, but who decided to prop it up for display? Come on!Play that funky music, kids, but get that stinking guitar and oversized trombone outta’ here.And your creative art projects are sweet, but why are they on the shelf where my office supplies are supposed to be or resting upon your dad’s books?
What the heck is this? I love that you creatively reuse and recycle but these left over tape rolls and old ornaments are just getting in my way.
No, this isn’t a man cave and I don’t encourage social farting so can we please remove this door hanger that you gifted to your dad last year?And by all means, my darlings, please feel free to leave the blanket and pillow on the floor after you’re done reading in the chair. Argh.I’m sick of hearing my own voice on repeat…”get your stuff out of here!”
So, it’s time for a makeover. Time to declutter and give the kiddies the boot. I’m taking my office back!
