a kitchen conversation

Mornings are always cuckoo in the Aughtmon house...
no matter how organized or well intentioned we are the night before.
This morning I was yelling out things like,
"Addison only has one shoe...how is that possible?"
and
"Get your lunches!"
and
"Are you going to finish your eggs?"
and
"What do you mean you don't have a jacket? You had one yesterday."
This was followed by a long and loud sigh.
Scott walked in to the kitchen calmly and said,
"Sue, I've just uncovered a conspiracy in our family.
All 3 boys have signed a pact to see if they can make you go crazy."
Overhearing his dad, Jack piped up with a grin, "Dad, I think its working!"
I am not the woman I once was....let's just leave it at that.

I totally get this.

I am convinced that my 5 year old has a personal agenda on Sunday mornings, too. He goes all week long, wakes up later in the morning dry.

On Sunday, we get him up an hour earlier and he's wet. Every time.

Ugh. Hang in there!

And what happens to those shoes and jackets over night? Do gremlins come in and gather and take them away while we are asleep? I always wondered.

My sister and I used to do this to our mom. "Lets see how fast we can drive mom crazy today!" (It was a pretty fast process...usually under an hour.)
Gosh, now I almost feel guilt.
Almost! Ha ha

Yes, my children signed that same pact. I have yet to find the secret hiding place where they have stashed the actual document, but I know it exists. And I think they have regular meetings where they plan their strategy....

you better watch them, or they will get you! it's a
conspiracy, "house & family vs. MOM!"

sounds like a happy, lively family, just as it should.
