Found this one lost in the “Drafts” pile.  I had a few others I thought I’d posted over the last few weeks…Haven’t found them yet.  Guess I need to go back to hitting the “View Site” button after every entry.

I’m sure you moms and dads (are there actually any dads who read here?  who knows??) know this feeling well:

The kids have been crafting all day.  While that tends to be messy, it’s easy enough to clean up.  And, the fact that they’re using the table ensures that they will need to clean up before every meal.  No problem there.

After dinner, they decided to play some other game.  I don’t really know what they were doing, but it involved taking Little Bear’s button down shirts off the hangers and shoving them in random drawers in the living room.  Well, that’s what it looked like to me.  I think maybe they were pretending to sew or something.  Anyhow…we had our usual clean-up before dessert.  We ate our lovely dessert (Barefoot Contessa’s Brownie Pudding-without the butter because I forgot it-and ice cream) which was followed by a few rounds of slap jack.  Bedtime soon followed with pj’s, brushing teeth, reading books, etc.

When I went to tuck in Little Bear and Little Lamb, I discovered they had thrown all of LB’s shirts on LL’s bed, which she had thrown on the floor.  There was mess all over the floor and tons of books in their beds.  I was so irritated!  How many times have I been through the whole “Cleaning up the living room does not mean you take everything and throw it in your rooms!” bit???

No video games for anyone tomorrow!

    I have that same problem…when you clean the living room, don’t just throw the stuff on the floor in your room. They don’t seem to register that it translates to picking up an item TWICE! Good luck gettiing the message through. 🙂

  2. Or… “clean up the basement” is translated to “stuff everything you possibly can under, in and around the cabinet. If it appears clean… it probably isn’t clean…
