Today has been a wasted day spent solely on my 3 sons bedroom. On saturday, Larry bought a pair of dressers. A much needed piece of furniture in the boys bedroom. For the last year and a half, I have neatly piled all of their clothing onto 5 shelves of an old bookcase. It was hard to keep this looking good when 3 pairs of hands were constantly pulling things off.
So today, I thought it was going to be a simple day. Merely me taking the clothes off the book case and putting them neatly into the new dressers. WRONG! I should have known my boys would have other plans. They had glue, scribbling and etchings on the walls that I had the opportunity to scrub off. After that, I found chicken bones, wild onions, and empty hershey wrappers hidden throughout the room. Boy have these kids been having a party.
I have no pictures to share, just the visualizations from my words. Mainly I did not take pictures because I refuse to finish cleaning their bedroom. There comes a point when they have to learn to do it on their own. Last month, I spent 2 days cleaning up their bedroom. I told them, I would never do that again and yet here I am a month later. So, I am having to control myself and just do what I set out to do. And that is neatly putting clothes into their new dressers.
