Before you see the rest of this mess - allow me to explain two things you see in this photo.
1. That stuffed lamb is one my oldest and most favorite stuffed animal. It ended up back in my room when Cam and Leia were playing with it the other day. I put it up on the chair because I don't want Charlie to think it's a chew toy.
2. The crate! Ah! We are back to crate training. Charlie is used to getting her own way in this home - sleep where she wants, wake up Mom when she wants, go outside when she wants, bug Mom all the time. That needs to change. When I lock Charlie in the room with me at night, she will literally whine for hours to be let out so she can see Mom. When I let her out Tuesday morning, after a night of being in the room with me, Charlie bounded down the stairs to Mom. Sunday morning she ran down the stairs, only to realize Mom was in the sewing room. I could hear Charlie fall as she tried to turn around quickly to get back up to Mom. She's obsessed.
Thank goodness for moms. Hopefully, the pictures I post next time will show new carpets AND a clean room. You'll definitely see new carpets and lets just hope I've gotten my life sorted out by then. I can't handle living in this mess.
