HoW BoYS aND GiRLS aRe DiFFeReNT



CBOY; My mom asked me to take all my winter clothes out of my dresser and put them on my bed and then put my summer clothes into my drawer. Which I took to mean See how many Funny Things I can do with a Swim Cap. I can out it on my head like this, I can put it on my butt, I can snap it like a towel at my little sister and make her cry, I can chase the cat around the house with it, I can...hey...is that my comic book?



BANANA: My mom asked me to take all my winter clothes out of my dresser and put them on my bed and then put my summer clothes into my drawer. Which I took to mean Try On Every Outfit I have Every Owned. Is this my color? Technically, if it has long sleeves does it really qualify for just winter? What if it's a chilly night and I need to cover my arms? Do these pants make my butt look big? MOM! JESSE JUST HIT ME WITH A BATHING CAP! WAAAAAA.

CBOY: (TWO MINUTES LATER) Alright Mom, stop yelling at me. I'm done. I took ALL THE CLOTHES OUT OF MY DRESSER. Okay? Geeze. MOM I CAN'T FIND MY SWIM CAP.




BANANA: (TWO HOURS LATER) Honestly, Mother...stop rushing me.

I'm shocked that it only took two hours.

I think my daughter and your daughter might actually be sisters. My daughter loves nothing more than putting new outfits together and trying them all on. Normally this wouldn't bother me in the least, except for the fact that when she removes the clothes, she leaves them on the floor. Even though they're clean. Trying to get her to put them away is like pulling teeth. Without medication. Which is why I drink so much red wine.

I'm with Thystle. I feel your pain.

My daughter has been doing that for about 3 months, no make that years.

I've given up.

Really, I'm just shutting the door, opening it wide enough to throw in another basket of clean laundry and free the cat. But I will. not. walk. in. there.

Ever. again.

Oh, and about picking up laundry?

Both of my children think that "putting laundry away" = "putting the clean clothes back in the hamper" because it's easier than putting them in the drawers.

I used to keep two closets, one for winter, one for summer. Somewhere along the way, they kind of mingled together. Now I have one for Winter/Summer and another for Summer/Winter. It's a complex system devoid of logic or V-Neck sweaters.

Our children are related. Of this I am sure.

With my sons, I have to drink heavily before even attempting this chore. Trying on clothes is painful!

Zakary said...

Nice! You should see me trying to get Zoe dressed in the morning. I put her in an outfit and she comes upstairs in something completely different.

I'm almost afraid to ask where the swimming cap ended up. But not completely afraid! So: did he leave it in his butt?

Perfection...enough said LMAO

See if we all moved to Costa Rica this would NOT be a problem.

I'm confused. I thought because you DID know the difference between boys and girls is why this whole he said/she said situation happened to you in the first place. Just keep your panties on and this won't happen again.....
