Can I Quit!

Can I Quit!

What can I say....let's all quit! I hate cleaning after Bastian so much I feel like I need to be paid. I've spent a whole day cleaning to turn around after 30 minutes and it's completely destroyed like I've done nothing. Then for the spouse to come home and look at me like I've done nothing all day is the worst. You feel worthless and like you fought a battle and were defended. No worries you are not alone believe me we all are on the same sinking ship about to drown in things we regret buying.

Here are some things I'm sure you can relate to:

1. Everything suddenly hurts: When it's time to clean all of sudden their legs hurt or their arms. They have forgotten how to walk or even function like a normal human being. You want them to help but it seems like less of a headache when they don't. Then you realize they are playing next to you while you are cleaning their mess. I just walk away at this point and start throwing things away so Bastian starts playing attention to me picking up his things. Hey you don't care about it enough to pick it up so it's now trash. 

2. Just throw it away! I don't want it: When you start throwing things away they turn to you and agree to throwing their stuff away. Just so they don't have to help you clean up their mess. Then when they go looking for it a few days later and the weigh of their choice really sinks in they lose it. Then they have the nerve to request for a new one because you have paper like that to just waste. I tell Bastian this is a life lesson should of just done what was asked and we won't be here. smh! Then for the whole day he cleans the nothingness that remains. lol

3. The notorious "No I don't want to": Every parent knows this struggle the No I don't want to bit. It gets old real fast.... you think to yourself like hell I don't want to either but here we are. I've learned to just ask why he doesn't want to clean and explain to him the feeling mutual but we have to keep the house clean to show our friends all of our things. Breaking it down for him to see value is a challenge but it gets the job done. Another thing is always get them with bribery.

Can we start a strike? I can total form this movement and we can make demands that won't be met! 😝 Comment Below on your torturous cleaning experience! 👇🏾

Bedtime Behavior

Bedtime behaviors are tricky and can range but all are rather normal and not special. When they are tired and want to go to bed you are their comfort. So naturally they are drawn to you when it’s close to bedtime. You have to remember the task at hand and not let the cuteness take you over. Don’t worry their bodies are failing them.
