Yep. That’s a crumb-caked knife. Used by one of our children for breakfast and placed back in the drawer.
A few things I guess I should try to be proud of if I want to look for a silver-lining here, and I usually do want to, so here goes:
- My kids are old enough to serve themselves breakfast.
- Whichever kid it was (cough-cough-Grace) (Just making assumptions here folks. I have no actual proof.) at least thought to clean up after him- or herself and put the knife away.
- Whichever kid it was didn’t lick the knife clean before putting it back.
- They didn’t put the used fork, used plate and used glass back in the cabinets. Nope. Those are all still on the table, waiting for the mom-maid to pass through. Thank goodness, really. I have a free five minutes to clean up after breakfast around 5 p.m. today. Well, less now, actually, since I took a few minutes to write this blog. 😉
Happy summer to all the parents out there! 🙂
