So in light of Yesterday's post - I thought I would show you all how exciting my life really is. You know, I strive to keep a clean house, and it takes work. But I also have 2 boys in a tiny apartment. I know it's good for them to have fun and play and make a mess. But then - it turns into this . . .
It all started when we left our stroller in Illinois and my parents had to mail it to us - which by the way, would've probably been cheaper to buy a new one! UGH!
We got it in this box - and Richard went to open it one day before work, realized it was full of packing peanuts and said he didn't have time, so he'll have to take it out later, making sure I didn't need it that day.
Carson of course saw them and thought they were so cool. So shortly after Daddy left for work, he starts getting a few of them out. He is such a sweet guy, and makes sure to ask me if this is ok. I figure - what's the harm, let them have fun. so I let him work at trying to get a few out here and there. And he is loving it!
|Look at how excited he was! How can you say no to that smile?!?!|
Needless to say - I spent over a half hour picking them all up by hand!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was a mess! I told Carson that he had to help me clean it up before he made the mess. So the entire time I'm reminding this precious 3 year old that he said he would help me, and keeping his mind on track. A few times he was getting impatient and kept saying "this is taking a long time". (and i will even admit that all my cool mommy awards were taken away with the frustration of cleaning them all up!)
Yeah! I know Carson. I hope you had fun playing in them. Because this is not fun for either of us now!
We filled 2 huge boxes of packing peanuts! And putting him to bed that night we were still finding them! What a mess!
See don't you all want to be a stay at home mom - cleaning up these messes??!!???!!!????
Note to self - think of other ways for the boys to have fun!
