Spring Cleaning: the Car...

I took out the car seats and what to my wondering eyes did appear?
A lost sippy cup, crushed animal crackers, dried up apple, and a smear....

Is it spring cleaning time for your car, too? Our twins are about to turn one and it's time to flip those car seats around. I took out all three car seats (toddler's too!) to wash them and loosen straps (all are a bit snug, even without bulky winter coats!) and noticed a plethora of random trip trash. We traveled quite a bit over the holidays and haven't really cleaned out the car since. If you're in that boat, too, then seize one of these nice spring days, pull out the car seats (wash them!), and clean out the car. It really doesn't take much: picking up trash, rescuing winter hats and various cups lodged under the seats, and straightening the toys/books you keep in the car for long trips (we have a small stash in the pockets behind the front seats--within easy reach for yours truly to hand back to cranky kids while Dad is driving). Voila! Clean car! If you're really inspired, you can vacuum the whole kit and caboodle. Ours deserves at least that. Since none of our kids can reach the windows, we don't have any messy fingerprints to clean off yet.
