Would you LIKE to come live at our house? I'm known as the "MeaN mOM"! Apparently we are the only house on the planet where messy rooms are frowned upon. According to my children, "other parents don't make their kids pick up their rooms". I'm tired of asking, I'm tired of begging. I am now officially known as the "mEAneSt MOm" because what I giveth, I now taketh! Today I dutifully proclaimed to each one of my 3 lovely cherubs that when bedtime is announced, they will have 10 minutes to pick up their floor or said items will be TRASHED! Oh the wailing and gnashing of teeth!! When the timer goes off, out comes the big black bag of death! Hopefully this will instill upon them the responsibility (I know...it's asking A LOT) of keeping their rooms somewhat decent. Yes...I AM asking a lot, I've been told...3 times over! Since we are the ONLY house on the planet where the "MeaNEst mOM" lives, I would be more than happy to send her to YOUR house!
