I know this is something that has never happened to anyone else because my children are particularly aggravating, but cleaning and organizing with a two- and a four-year-old around? Dude, it totally sucks.
Because I just put that puzzle away and those marbles? See, I just put them in that bucket so they wouldn’t roll all over the floor. And I put all the books on the bookshelf, big ones on the bottom, little ones on the top.
And don’t you know that once I organize and put all the new Christmas toys away where they’re supposed to go, you’re never allowed to play with them again?
And then one of your children puts a studded belt around his neck and says, “I a dog,” and it’s just so cute, so you forgive him.
And then, like five minutes later, he’s emptied out a box of tiny cars and you never want to speak to him again.
I hate cleaning.
