Dear Kids… (June 2011)
This a continuation of hilarious Facebook status updates by my friend Amy. Summer vacation is almost here and the fun never stops.
6/29/11 – is less than thrilled that the shirt I intended to wear today came out of the dryer with a half wrapped starburst crusted to it! Thanks Kids!!! Lets try to remove candy from our pockets before putting clothes in the laundry!!! (and for the record… being the fashion conscious person I am… I did my best to remove said starburst and am wearing said shirt)!
6/28/11 – Dear (to remain nameless triplet) child of mine~ It is very unappreciated, by me, when we are in the pediatricians office, with a sick sibling of yours, the doctor is examining him, and you are sitting in a chair (perfectly well) making puke noises! Please refrain from such activity in the future! Always the killjoy, Mom
6/27/11 – Dear to remain nameless triplet of mine~ No, the dentist did not ” take you out of my belly!” I did make sure I used an experienced OB to deliver the three of you! ~Mom
6/26/11 – Dear Kids~ I just found 1 pair of swim trunks, 4 shirts, 1 pair of undies, 2 pairs of shorts, 1 pair of pajamas, 1 large sword, 2 guns, 1 dart, 1 flying disc and a cheese wrapper… all on your very small bathroom floor downstairs! I think we have a problem here!!!! Always the killjoy ~Mom
6/25/11 – after a morning of fighting and craziness, from the mouth of Drew, said in the voice of Eeyore.. “This is a small house for 7 people!”
6/23/11 – this just in… I have been told by my, to remain nameless, fashion plate of a son, who thinks wearing all red means he matches because it’s all the same color,… that…. *Gasp*.. my lipstick does not match my hair?!?! Not quite sure what the proper fashion etiquette is for lipstick and hair matching!!
6/20/11 – loved that her to remain nameless triplet son told her she needs to “go see Miss Jane” so she can “fix your hair!” (Jane does my hair and this kid obviously thinks it needs doing!)! Thanks for not beating around the bush son.. just come right on out with it and tell me my hair looks terrible!! Gotta love the honesty of boys! :)
6/20/11 – Dear Boys~ Thank you for your help in putting things away! For future reference, the hot dogs (which are now in the garbage) do not belong in the pantry!! Always the killjoy~ Mom
6/10/11 – cannot believe she just had to cut her(to remain nameless) sons pants… out of the bike they were stuck in, as the bus was coming down the street! (yes, my son and his pants were stuck to his bike as the bus was coming and I was yelling for the other kids to get scissors!!!) Never, Ever, a dull moment here!!!! Our next door neighbors are selling their house.. anyone interested? LOL
6/8/11 – Dear (to remain nameless) son~ If your fish (or any other animal for that matter) dies in your room, it is not to be kept as some sort of decoration… we need to know about it… so we can properly dispose of it! (and perhaps eliminate at least some of the stink in your room!) Always the Killjoy, Mom
6/7/11 – Dear Boys~ Mud is dirty and meant to be that way.. mud itself does not need to get washed… that being said.. your container of mud somehow miraculously made it through the washer and dryer without opening (for which you are very lucky) and is now “cleaned!” In the future, please refrain from putting containers of mud in the laundry. Always the killjoy, Mom
6/3/11 – Dear Neighbors~ I will be happy to donate toward earplugs… so that you aren’t awoken by all the crazy shenanigans and fighting among our kids every morning!
