Oh Thank the Man upstairs that is letting me work on my Post-It Note Tuesday post!! I don’t know why my laptop is deciding to work at the moment, but I am not going to question it. I’m just gonna do what I love…and that is to make stickie notes!!
A big whopping lick-your-face shout out to SupahMommy over at Adventures of a WannaBe SupahMommy who sponsors Post-It Note Tuesday!! Click below to play along!!
So, a few weeks ago I attempted writing stickie notes to the people that I would really like to pitch in around the house. As you may have guessed, THAT did not work. This week I’m going to take a different approach. Ready??
You see where I’m going with this??
I know, this is a long shot, but come on, People…..if the spouse and the tween won’t follow directions, I might have a better chance with the inanimate objects….ya never know.
You see, any time I ask someone to clean something up, I get the big answer-fail of “I didn’t do it”. Of course not!! Absolutely not…..the tween would never leave crumbs on the chair in the living room where she was sitting doing her homework, NEVER!!! Oh, what’s that?? That’s right….she didn’t SEE them fall….
And the spouse would never leave breadcrumbs on the counter after making a sandwich…he was “just coming back to clean them up” when he saw me already cleaning them up. And he would never go to bed without helping clean up the kitchen because he was “just about to clean it up” when he saw that I already had it handled.
And as for the toddlers?? Well, I can’t really fault them for much, they are after all, still learning what they should or shouldn’t do. But with the role models they have, I’m not sure they are going to learn the way I would prefer. Like when the Dad gets them ready for bed (yes, he does pitch in at times) and does the manly thing of “trying to make a basket” with their dirty clothes…yet misses….and leaves the clothes on the floor for the maid to pick up……Oh wait….we don’t HAVE A MAID!!! You get the point??
Stop rolling your eyes!! It’s true!! I just have one more thing to say…
….and she’s not coming back any time soon. Sorry for your loss.
