My daughter was sitting at the dining table as I was tidying up or cooking or something along those lines.
She looked over to me accusingly and said, “Mom, you’re not a professional organizer.”
I drew my brows together and said, “Yes, I am.”
And she said, “No you’re not.”
WTH? I immediately wanted to know and asked her, “Why do you say that?”
She didn’t respond, just kind of blew me off.
I tried again, “Courtland, what makes you say that?”
She said, “Because my room is dirty.”
Sweet. I looked her in the eyes and a bit sarcastically said, “Then go clean it.”
The moral of my story is that even when your room is organized, you have to consistently eliminate items and put things away or it will appear to be dirty or messy.
I can get you organized, but you have to keep it that way!

Have your children ever blamed their messiness on you? I’d love to hear your story.
