Sometimes I ask myself "How do I do it?"

How do I do it? I ask myself this often,Of course with four children driving me up the wall. Today I woke up to find the boys totally recked their room. Yeah It was that way last night but not to this extent. So I finally decided this morning I was fed up with the mess. They weren't listening to me,when I told them to clean it like a hundred times. So I got a bag for the trash and started picking up papers they have decided to just rip up for no particular reason. As I was picking these up I started to smell a strong smell of urine. No it wasn't from our dog this was too much for a dog. My kids 3 out of the 4 decided it would be fun to pee all over their room. Keep in mind they are 6,5,and 3years old. So I decided since nothing else has worked for their behavior they were going to lose everything. I then got out a second bag for their toys and started cleaning out the toy box. By the time I was done with the kids rooms I had 1 big bag of trash (most of it was from under their bed and dresser etc..) and 4 bags full of toys. I did keep the toys that are from when we were little and put the away in a trunk. Hopefully our grand kids can treat them better. At first I thought I was being harsh but then I thought about how they did something like this thinking it was ok. I know kids will be kids but come on..

I later vacuumed and shampooed the carpet,hoping the smell comes out. If ya have any ideas on how to get that smell out let me know. I hate when my house stinks. Any little smell bothers me. Oh the Joys of Motherhood!
I also want to share Aurora's new toy. She thinks this is the only thing that matters these days. But I do have to say it beats her peeing on the floor. Here is a pic. How cute.

Is this what i have to look forward to? I have an 18month old boy that already keeps me running ragged. Sounds like you have your hands full.
