So…how’s your morning gone?
Mine turned to utter **** at 7am… I’m being brave and sharing it with you… 🙈
My 4yro and & 3yro boys were unsupervised in living room for 15 minutes whilst I’d gone back to my bedroom to get ready for school bus drop and must’ve crashed out asleep after a rough night.
Usually, they just watch TV, ipads or read books. Or make a toy mess building blocks or what not.
No different to playing in backyard whilst I cook dinner, or playing inside whilst I hang washing etc.
They know the rules and generally follow them. They have their moments but are usually sweet kids who do the right thing.
Not today though… I was roused by the rustling of a bread bag and the words “lets cut it up”… I thought “ok, its almost breakfast time, they must be trying make a sandwich, there’s probably a small mess”…
BOY OH BOY OH BOY WAS I WRONG! 😱
They must’ve been hungry and looking for breakfast but instead of coming and asking for food as they usually do three thousand times a day…
They’d lifted a tiny kid chair (cause dragging I’d have heard), climbed up to where breakfast and coffee stuff is stored, taken to 4yro’s bedroom and poured it EVERYWHERE!
Honey, sugar, maple syrup, hot chocolate powder, tea bags… It’s rubbed on the bed, mirror, ipad, teddies, reading chair, floor…
I cannot believe what they managed to accomplish without making a sound because I’d have heard them… I left them on couches quietly watching Ipads!
They’ve NEVER done anything like this before!
Their ipads are in ‘jail’ now for a whole week!
Please tell me I’m not the only parent who has had this sort of mess occur in record time?!
Judgemental comments will be removed.
I’m not a perfect parent, none of us are and I cannot watch my children 24/7…
