My dear children,
I'm so happy to be your mother. You're all clever and cute and ever so sweet. However… must we;
take every book off the shelf and drag them to other rooms to use them as stools?
put all the play food in the shopping cart, wheel it to another room and dump it?
take all your clean clothes out of your drawers to pack for a make believe vacation?
cut up 47 pieces of paper into itty bitty pieces all over the floor?
take the covers and sheets off your bed to make a fort?
pull out all one million stuffed animals for a "dance party"?
manage to spread an evenly thin layer of toys, dress up clothes and paper throughout the entire house?
Really? Must we? And all before 8 a.m.?
Let's not. So the next time someone questions "what do you do all day" you won't feel the need to answer "we have to clean all day." Because when you tell homeschool skeptics that you're forced to clean all day it just doesn't look good for mommy.
Thanks so much.
P.S. Toilet paper belongs on the roll.
