Things happen in my life on a near-daily basis that prove Murphy’s Law as truth. Each Monday is dedicated to showcasing my life’s crazy moments.
I know I’m not the only parent who experiences this so please leave me a comment and remind me that I really am not the only one. OK? OK, thanks.
I hate sweeping and mopping my floors because I find my efforts are futile at best. Without fail, one of the kids makes the biggest mess of the century 4.9 minutes after I finish mopping.
So this week, I buckled down and mopped the floor (I sweep daily). There were a few juice spots and one nice puddle of milk that finally prompted me to disinfect. I pulled the mop out of the utility closet and went to dunk it into my sink full of hot, hot water and white vinegar when I noticed a black, hairy-ish chunk hanging off of the mop. I gagged as I used a spoon to flick it off into the other sink before sticking it in my clean water. excuse me while I go lose my lunch right now, please.
OK, I’m back.
I then mopped the hard floors in our house. It was then that I realized that our walls were DISGUSTING. SO I filled a small bucket up with hot water and white vinegar and proceeded to scrub every wall and each baseboard in my entire 2000sf home.
About a half an hour later, it was time to prepare dinner. Madilyn was up from her nap and as always, eager to help me cook. Or make a mess. They’re the same thing to her. So without fail, as I reached into the refrigerator to grab the milk, she snuck in between me and the ‘fridge and grabbed the dozen and a half eggs off of the second shelf.
I somehow intercepted the carton from falling all the way to the floor, but not before I broke one in my hand and…one on the floor.
Madilyn looked at me like, “OH no you di’int!” and then said, “Mommy Oops” while pointing to the slimy yellow substance on my floor like I was the one who made the mess.
She then stuck her hand in it and rubbed it on my clean wall. What possessed her to do that, I’ll never know.
But that’s just my life. That’s just how it goes and the #1 reason I absolutely DESPISE cleaning. Why bother?
