One of life's mysteries

Why is it virtually impossible for two girls to put clean clothes away in their room? Why is it they are incapable of opening up a single drawer and dropping all of their clean socks in that drawer? Why is it that they think that it is more than ok to take the clothes that I have spent time washing, drying, and folding for them, and just throw them on top of the dresser, or their beds, or even on the floor?

Why do I have to litterally have to get the trash bags and threaten to throw everything away in their room that is not picked up and put away right? Why do we have to have this battle every single day? Why can't they understand that they would have less trouble finding something to wear in the morning, if they would just put all of their clothes away where they belong when I give them to them?

One of life's little mysteries........

I understand. Trust me I understand. My girls do the same thing!! I KNOW I was putting my clothing away when I was 6 and 8 or I got my butt beat! And it wasn't just thrown in a drawer. I was NEATLY put in a drawer or hung up properly.

They do this so they can blame us when they can't find anything to wear.

And guess what Missouri Becky? Before even reading your blog, tonight I did take a trash bag to the room, the clothes and the toys. I've had it. You would think our house was the Fred Sandford's front yard. And by this weekend, I intend on a full sweep.

Maybe we should just go on a laundry strike. Clothes? "What Clothes-I have my clothes?" Towels? "I have my towel." Hmm.. I wonder if it would work.

Love, Tennessee Becky

Maybe they're blind and you just haven't noticed. Ok, probably not that, I dunno.

Don't threaten. Do it. We, not really. Just take the clothes, bag them up, and tell them you threw them away. Let 'wm sweat it for a day or two and then give it back. Tell them next time, you really will throw them out and all they will have to wear is what ever was actually in it's proper place.
