Well, here are some things I have learned along the way.......
Items that I find laying on the floor must not be of value to anyone, so they are immediately dumped in the trash.
Little kids work cheap and are easily impressed. A quarter buys me a diaper change for the child of my choice.
Every time I walk by the washing machine, I feel compelled to put some laundry in, take some laundry out, but never, ever fold it.
Adults do not fold laundry in my kingdom. (of course this isn't me, mom's don't iron in my kingdom either).
Clean towels must be hidden and only given out one at a time. Otherwise, the greedy little monsters will decorate my bathroom floor with clean towels every 5 minutes.
If you want to eat, then you have load and unload the dishes. My job is not to provide you with a clean plate.
To be on the safe side, keep a secret roll of toilet paper for yourself hidden behind the Milk of Magnesium.
Never reveal to your toddler where your toothbrush is.
Teenagers must work for wi-fi.
Refrigerators are easy to clean when you have a teenager in the house because they eat all the food.
Cats make great dusters. Simply throw some cat treats under the bed and watch the kitties go to work.
Socks are the bane of my existence, so all socks in the family go in one big bin and it's treasure hunt time!
And finally, my very favorite sentence to be uttered by my kids, "Mom, I'm bored!" I always have a solution for that!
Anyone have any tips of their own to share?
