Kids will be kids

Being the very type A personality, anally retentive person that I am, I really enjoy order in my life. (I don't have any, but I do enjoy it when it happens). Being a SAHM, I realize that order doesn't really come with the job description. I honestly don't understand why, though.

I mean, seriously, why can't a 3 year old see the fun in playing with one toy quietly and orderly, and then putting it neatly away before moving on to another? Why can't she see the absolute luxury of a 3 hour nap, and take advantage of it before the demanding schedule of preschool is upon her?

Why can't a 16 month old see that climbing the furniture to get at every breakable object in the house isn't a productive use of his time? Can't he see that working quietly on a puzzle will really better prepare him for the cold, harsh world?

And while we're on the subject, why can't a grown man find the garbage can two feet away from him when he has trash in his hand? How in the world does a 31 year old misplace his wallet and keys EVERY DAY? Does this make sense to anyone else?

Come on people, let's get it together just a little - for Mommy, okay?
Name: Christine

I'm the Mom of two. They drive me crazy. I love them dearly. I want one more. I'm not insane, yet. My hubby says I'm a snob with an inferiority complex. There is more to me than being a mother. I just don't remember any of it.
