a bit extreme?

The kids had friends over yesterday.  I told them to clean up the basement before they left.  They didn't really clean much.  Or perhaps they did.  Suffice it to say there was a lot that was not put away.

Then they had another playdate today.  I was pretty annoyed about yesterday.  I also felt bad, because I remember being told, "Go clean the basement" and there being such a huge amount of toys that I could barely make a dent in it.  Maybe they feel the same way.

Anyway, I went downstairs today and just put everything that was not put away into a garbage bag.  I got another bag for things to throw out, like used paper.  There was so much stuff on the floor I got another garbage bag.

As I was dumping toys into garbage bags, I kept having two different feelings:

1) They play with this so much!
2) Do we really need 30 trucks?

Anyway, I don't know what will be missed.  I am not sure where to keep 2 giant garbage bags of stuff.  I feel like if they miss any of the stuff, they can do something to redeem it.  And if they don't miss it, then we didn't really need it, did we?
