K – ” I can’t find my coat I have to leave now”
Me – “I told you to get organised last night”
K – ” Well I thought about what I needed”
Me – “doing would have been better than thinking”
K – “Well how I was I to know I was going to lose my coat”.
Arrrrahhhh, sorry for that but some days that’s all I want to do. I love my girls but ever school morning every outing is always preceded by stress and chaos. I have tried everything to get them organised, yet I find myself repeating the same things over again.
The crazy thing is they didn’t used to be like that. B my youngest still isn’t. Her bedroom is always tidy and she is always prepared the odd episode over lost socks but hey I can cope with that.
My two teenagers are a different story their room should have a health warning attached to it and no matter how much notice you give them they are never ready.
I know I have to accept that they growing up but I need to work on their organisation skills and tidying skills, I couldn’t imagine them living on their own.
Then again if I was to jump back 15 years when I first moved out I can remember my mom saying “I hope you keep your home tidyer than your bedroom”.
That’s a scary thought; maybe it’s a generation thing we all go through. Whatever it is please God grant me more patience before I strangle the two little madams.
