I’m always after my kids to clean up after themselves. Clean up what you’re playing with before you move on to the next thing.
It sounds easy enough … on paper. Well, my kids are getting better, but stuff’s showing up in unusual places.
Take, for instance, last night. I went down to the refrigerator in the garage to put away an extra milk. When I opened the fridge door, I noticed a roll of scotch tape on one of the shelves on the door. Instead of a condiment, there was tape.
Would you like ketchup, mustard or double sided tape on that hot dog? What in the world goes through a child’s mind (I’m assuming it was one of the kids) to think the fridge was a good place to store office supplies?
Although I’ve gotta admit. I remember one time I tried to put the milk in the cabinet with the sugar and flour.
