I realize completely that those of you who are home with your children everyday see this as nothing more than the routine you endure on a daily basis and have so for years. It's been AWHILE since I've been there so bear with me. Humor me.
There are no words to express the need for these children to get the hell out of my house. And I mean that...with ALL the love in my heart. I figured I would let the pictures speak for themselves:
I now have every kid-friendly TV show theme song committed to memory and could recite at the drop of a hat. Unfortunately.
I don't even know what to say about this. They have daily chores which always include cleaning their room. And yet...we have this. Every. God. Bless-ed. Night.
I can't keep up with this. All day. Every day. I straighten the couches and fold blankets, whispering obsenities, and pleading with the children to keep their stink-infested shoes in the closet and toys UPSTAIRS (in the aforementioned pit of a bedroom).
Um...anyone seen any LEGOs around here? I can't seem to find any. And guys...this is just a quarter of the LEGOs. The rest are in boxes. LOTS and lots of boxes. Because we NEED that many teeny tiny plastic foot-killing building blocks.
THIS. This right here. Is numero uno. I have gone through more dish soap and detergent than should be allowed for any one household in a summer. I didn't know you needed a plate to eat a piece of cheese. Did you? Nor did I realize there is some unwritten rule out there stating you must get a new cup for every drink refill. This is NOT Old Country Buffet, my friends! There will be no more claiming ignorance where loading the dishwasher is concerned. If I ever needed a kick in the ass to train this family right...I've gotten it now.
Bye kiddos!! Love you!!! Have a great day at SCHOOL!!!!!
