I have a three year old girl and we were doing fine with her toys with clear plastic boxes until her brother came along (he is now two). To ease the picking-up process when he was smaller I photographed all the toys that went in each plastic box separately. I then TAPED the appropriate PICTURE to the box where it belonged. No more excuses, now even friends can place toys in their appropriate box and it prevents the kids from opening all the boxes to find THAT toy.
Being amazed and bewildered by small things gets me smiling and reminds me that the little things add up. Ahhing and ohhing over a pretty sunset, bird, bug, boat, drawing, meal, gift, flower or anything at all brings out my inner child. It is awfully hard to feel depressed and discouraged once that inner child is out and an much easier to smile.
