Are you finding that the whole house is turning into the kids playroom? Strive to always keep some space that is yours. Make it a "toy free" zone. Maybe it's okay for the children to play in that area as long as they don't leave toys laying around or move your things. Better still, make it an area that they don't play in. e.g. the study, parent's retreat or lounge room (if you have a separate rumpus / TV room). You may want to create a comfy corner for yourself with certain books or momentos by your favourite chair.
