maybe you don't have that problem? thing is, we have several toys that we want to keep (vs. donate/craigslist/trash) so we needed a spot for them. our solution was to move the table from the more practical, tiled area to the not-at-all-practical-white-carpet dining room.
i'm thrilled with this little play area, even if it does require a little more work after mealtime. the kids seem to enjoy being in the room where the action is, so it's nice to have this near the kitchen when it's time to make dinner.
it's salmon tonight, and you're all welcome. see you around 5?
