Today, during a major excavation of my daughters' room, Anne-with-an-e, age 17, said, "I really like a good declutter now and then."
Mothers and declutterers of the world, take heart and rejoice! Your children will not hoard forever! They will not save candy wrappers until they die! They will not insist on enshrining plastic keepsakes and cootie catchers for all eternity!
I am here to proclaim to you a great truth: They outgrow it!
Hang in there.
