Thanks for the link, Asha!

Thanks for the article on picking up toys - another great tip there is to attach a special song that you and your little one sing while picking up. There are tons of them - we currently like "It's clean up time and everybody helps" (repeat about a thousand times).

You're welcome, both of you! Re: the cleanup song, we could all improve our parenting by taking a few tips from preschool teachers. I remember watching in awe as preschoolers tidied up the space, and everything (including little tiny pieces) had a place to go. Rig the environment!
