right now...

i am probably qualified for the meanest mom in the world award.

the girls love to play "store"...this consists of moving nearly every piece of furniture in their room and dumping every toy they own onto the floor. occasionally, they will "arrange" some of the dumped toys into a "display".

well, cool.
i have no problem with that.
what i have a problem with is that they REFUSE to pick up any of the dumped toys or put back the furniture back when they are finished.

so, the other day, i warned them that, if they didn't clean up their messes when they were done, i was going to remove EVERYTHING from their room {with the exception of their beds, dressers, bedding, and books}...

and right now, they are both in their room crying hysterically because that is exactly what's happening.
