Lynda Loveland: You put what, where?

Posted April 27, 2011

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.

    Finding things that don't belong in the refrigerator is better than the milk in the cereal cabinet....:(

    When I was pregnant, I lost 2 jackets. I still have no idea where I put them.

    I have found remotes to the television in the fridge before. Wait until they learn to hide things under the bed!

    You are a MEAN person. Shame on you. You reap what you sow, don't forget it.

    Thanks, seahawker. Being a teacher and a mom I always try to set a good example. You should stop by my classroom, my kindergarteners could teach you a few things about manners and respect!

    seahawker- What a hateful and unnecessary comment. You obviously missed the part in "Bambi" where Thumper quoted, "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all". Hopefully your own children got it and won't mimick your crass model.
