Father asks about kid problems

Questioner:Cornell in Mississippi
Subject:Kid problems

I have a couple of issues as a father who is in need for advice. First of all, let me introduce myself. I am 26 yrs old, married to an amazing wife, with two kids, and a dog. We stay in a 2 bedroom apartment. Now let's get to the issue.(the kids) They are both boys; one is 2 years old and the other one is 1. They are sweet at times, but are very frustrating to me when it comes down to keeping the apartment clean. They trash this apartment like it's a trash bin. I constantly cleans up to the point that I feels like a janitor. I puts all my pride into cleaning up because I love breathing cleanness of a house. Me and my wife tries to keep it clean, but them two as a team is a nightmare. We even made the 2nd bedroom out of a play pin for them by putting toys in there and a TV with cartoon on it, but instead, they drag the toys into the living room. 

That's not all, they love to stay up late to where me and my wife doesn't have any alone or quality time together. The attention between me and her are blocked by those two rascals.
And they wakes up so late like around 11am-12:30 pm at the most.( My 2 year old son's bed is next to our bed and our 1 year old sleeps in the bed with us. The 2 bedroom is across the other side of the apartment, but my wife does not like them that far from our bedroom due to safety reasons of fearing that someone would sneak in and take our kids.

Do fathers make a difference?

Can there be a better statement than the one made by the youngest recipient of the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize, Malala Yousafzai? "I am proud that I am the first Pakistani and I am honored that I am the first young woman or the first young person to be receiving this award. I an thankful to my father for not clipping my wings and for letting me fly!"

Can the results be anymore impressive than this and under the most dramatic circumstances. Fathers everywhere take note, you do matter and they do notice!
