Minty Freshness

My boys regularly make messes, no surprises there. There are various ways to clean up said messes, not limited to using tea towels, hand towels, napkins or bath towels. We don’t have tissues or hand towels and haven’t for a year or thereabouts, and sometimes the boys don’t know what I mean if I tell them to grab some paper.
This morning 6yo squeezed the toothpaste too much, because they really do only need a teeny tiny smidge of that stuff. I didn’t want it on cloth towels and they were all waving it around and it was surely only a matter of time before it smeared in eyes or on cupboards. Sigh. “Wipe it off on some toilet paper” I said. And that is what someone did. I didn’t specify – and they didn’t extrapolate – exactly what that process should have entailed.
I just went to the bathroom before coming to the gym… this will be an interesting work out.

    So many of your stories sound familiar even though it was many moon’s ago, (I had 3 in 3 years) in the 60’s. When 3 kids are close together it is often difficult to determine who and what happened. Actually, the more you listen to “their side” of the story, the more confused it becomes to get after the correct villain that was sent to their room until at least 1 glass of wine is consumed. Your kids are just in a different year but still pull the same things as mine, no matter what century. Some how the “innocent” one was to be determined by shear luck of the draw on any given day. Looking back it was some of the best years of my (our) life so hang in there with a smile on your face……that will scare (supposed to anyway) them into thinking that you may “know something”. ENJOY…love your blog…
