I thought I would be honest and show you where I started so you can be seriously impressed with me when I am all done. The following picture is not for the super-organized and faint-at-heart. Seriously, Jen and Mel, look away!
This is what two years of chaos has led to. . .
For the record, I do know what a good closet should look like. This is Emma's (still in progress):
M and Will just left for the graduation. I have at least four solid hours to work some serious organizational miracles, my friends.
Edited: Like all projects of this nature, it took a lot longer than I would have thought to get the closet clean and organized . . . about six hours altogether. The good news is that I got it all done, including his dresser/changing table, which was also a MESS. I was able to sort all of his old clothes by size and put them in totes, which are going to a friend of ours who is expecting a little boy in November. I am so glad they can be put to good use, though I will admit to getting teary eyed as I packed them away. She is going to give them back to me, but I am pretty sure that our family is complete, so I will probably never see them on one of my babies again. It made me a bit wistful, even though I know I am going to have my hands full with these two. But at least his closet will be organized while I am dealing with the transition!
Oh, and because I finally found the adapter, I also have recent belly shots and the nursery update slated for later on this week. I know you are hanging on the edge of your keyboards.
