“The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up” vs. a Real Family

What needs decluttering? The workspace surrounding me as I type this! If you are anything like me, you probably want to read this mystical book — The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo. It purports to change readers’ lives by teaching a sacred love-it-or-leave-it relationship with possessions that purifies both home and spirit. Wow … sounds great. But how does it hold up against a home full of kids? Reading it with my maternal scrutiny dialed up to 10, I have to admit, I liked this book from the very beginning. Marie discusses the testimonials from people who have attended her tidying courses, and one of them was: “Your course taught me to see what I really need and what I don’t. So I got a divorce. Now I feel much happier.” Bam, Marie! You don’t pull any punches. Tidying up sounds like a cheaper version of what I do — therapy. Marie truly believes that tidying will help people organize their entire lives, and I am willing to believe her, at least for this moment. The main point of this book is that you can’t just tidy up one small area at a time, because that’s not going to keep you motivated. You need to do a 180 and tidy up your entire home in one fell swoop. The book commands you to change your entire mindset about cleaning. As convincing as Marie is, some parts of this book are going to work for people with small kids and some won’t. Here are some good points of hers for parents without the time to do a whole house tidying...
Feeding Chair

Feeding Chair

You will spend hours and hours and hours in the chair you choose for your nursery. What begins as time spent nursing, snuggling, and bonding turns into time reading books, talking, and giggling. When it was time for us to choose our nursery seating, my husband and I knew that if we were going to spend a chunk of money on a comfortable and durable chair, we would want it to be in a style that would last for years and serve multiple purposes. We chose a Je T’aime Feeding Chair that will become the place where we will say our good nights to each of our babies and one day it will make its way into our lounge. Each Baby Belle chair is tried and tested and truly perfected before becoming a standard range item.
