Kids & Summer

July 6, 2017

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:

  1. My kids are old enough to serve themselves breakfast.
  2. 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.
  3. Whichever kid it was didn’t lick the knife clean before putting it back.
  4. 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! 🙂
