Welcome to my world, glad to see you here.

Okay, so we have a bookshelf that sits to my left and our 11 month old walking daughter at times gets over to it and pulls books down off it. Not a huge deal but I asked my eight year old to pick them up before she lept out the back door to play.

Ok, so apparently she came over, picked them up and ran outside to play. I not seeing the actually cleaning occur was rather dismayed when I saw the books laying on the ground, paused to regain my composure and then called her back inside to clean them up.

I was standing behind my wife who was getting ready to go out to eat when we heard my oldest and dear eight-year old daughter say the following:

"I just cleaned this mess up!! Who made this mess?!? I need to know who made this mess again, I really did just clean this up!! I keep cleaning up the same messes!!"

Welcome to my world! I think my wife and I may have said that in unison.

Under the Mercy,
Matthew S

Been there, done that! My 14yo sounds just like me when she scolds her little sister.
Peace and Laughter,

Boy do I know the feeling! Sort of like shoveling snow in a blizzard. :)

GREAT! It's like shoveling snow in a blizzard or raking leaves on a windy I attempted to do today! What a great little anecdote! Thanks for the laugh!
