Clean cars!

This last weekend I cleaned out the inside of our van. This is the vehicle I drive everywhere, with my 4 kids! We go to and from school, the store, church..... you get the picture! This exact word is often the problem in my car PICTURE! At school, preschool and at church my kids are always coloring and doing projects and they bring them in the car. When we get home I always say. Get you stuff out of the car! I am busy unloading the baby and my gear (although I typically keep a diaper bag packed in the car for ease) but none the less I get the baby in and out and often the dog too! So I try to make the kids responsible for their own stuff.... Apparently I have failed! My car is more often then not a rolling garbage can and my husband is sick of it! So I cleaned 6 coats (2 my husbands), 8 pairs of socks (mostly the babies), a bag full of toys and books, and 2 garbage bags of trash out Saturday. No I am not exaggerating and, yes that embarrasses me! But "DON'T YOU JUDGE ME!" (that was for all you Earl fans out there!) My husband was disgusted and said "NO one else has this problem!" I quickly told him I was not the only mom in the world who struggles with this so please back me up on this and vote on my poll! I just have to see if I am alone! Julie Clarke if you are reading this you can't vote because I think he is referring to you when he said no one else has this problem!

We used to struggle more with our old car, because I didn't care about it as much, but now I'm more strict with it. But that's not to say it's not still a struggle!

Amanda I could have written this post all the way down to the husband part. I always refer to our van as a rolling science experiment.

I cleaned out our car today and picked up many candy wrappers... all in the variety that Scott enjoys! So now I know who the litter bug is! But, I confess I'm not much better either....

You are definately not the only one with this problem. The last time I cleaned out our van, I found some really disgusting apples that the boys had eaten, then hidden. Surprise!
(HOpe you don't mind I added you to our contacts!)
