Today's challenge

Is cleaning the car out - the whole caboodle.

This entailed:

~Taking 2 toddler car seats out.
~Finding all the "treasures" our kiddos left there.
~Thinking, "Oh, this is where that went."
~Emptying the garbage.
~Bringing in items that don't belong in the car.
~Checked the trunk for emergency supplies (water, first aid kit, jumper cables, T.P., etc.)
~Wiped down inside of car and doorways.
~Kids helped washed all the windows and honk the horn (grrr).
~Then dismantled car seats to clean the fabric.
~Tried to keep all the buckles, belts and parts together with little hands in the midst of it.
~Sprayed fabric with spot cleaner and washed.
~Put in dryer for 5 minutes and then put in the sun on the deck.
~Wipe down shell of car seats and cloth straps.
~Put car seats together (Daddy is a whiz at this).
~Put seats in car.
~(Still need to take to car wash)

Hmmm, maybe this is why we don't do this more than a few times a year. It is a bit of a challenge. Although, it could be worse with more car seats or a bigger vehicle. :)
