I've tried explaining when they are done with one toy, to put it away before getting out another. No. That would make too much sense, mom. And instead of changing clothes 50 times a day, just get dressed ONCE, maybe TWICE if you get your clothes dirty. And Ash, why don't you try to wear ONE layer of clothes instead of tw…
