My kids are EVERYWHERE!
I mean it. They.Are.Going.Crazy.
And so am I.
I swear. I cannot turn my back for more than five minutes or else I will be faced with cleaning up the aftermath of Cyclone Helene and Simon.
Last week it was the bathroom. They unrolled an ENTIRE DOUBLE roll of toilet paper and put it into the toilet. Then they tried to flush. Water went EVERYWHERE. And somehow in the whole debacle, Helene manged to get soaked as well. Since I wasn’t actually there I can only imagine by the looks of her that she jumped into the toilet.
A few days ago it was the living room. We had received a package in the mail that had am entire roomful of those annoying packing peanuts in it. Simon was having a good time running his hands through them and was being quite tame so I decided it would be okay to go and use the restroom for point two seconds. Um. Wrong-o!! Go ahead and just take a quick gander at what they did to my house.
Today it was the kitchen. Before I go any further, however, I need to defend myself. You see, I was on this here computer signing up for an online quilting class. My ONLY new years resolution (read: a goal that I will not accomplish) was to start quilting regularly again. It is good for my nerves and we all know how much those things of mine really need to calm the hell down. I was registering at Quilt University for Hawaiian Quilting 101. Let me just say right now that I am VERY excited about this.
Anyway. The kitchen. I walked into the kitchen to terminate a fight between my two angels and I stopped dead in my tracks the very second I stepped into the room. An ENTIRE jug of apple juice was spilled ALL.OVER. the floor. (Sticky, anyone?) Beans from our Bin O’ Beans were scattered just about EVERYWHERE.
In all my four years of motherhood I have NEVER seen such a nightmare. (And if you were to see all the apple juice you would agree with me. I am sure of it.)
You would think that by now I would learn my lesson. I mean, I know that if you turn your back on preschoolers and toddlers that you are in for it. I’m not quite sure why my stupid head can’t quite put two and two together… but here you have it. I am punished regularly for turning my back on the Simon Sea and the Helene Ocean.
