I am tired of it.
My house looks like a party that I wasn’t invited to. It is always a giant mess. No matter how much I pick up, sweep, clean.
I have always taught my kids to be respectful and clean up after yourselves. I have always taught them responsibility is key.
But somehow that went right out the window since they have been home due to Covid 19.
Every single day I am repeating myself constantly to pick up your wrappers, to put your dishes in the sink or dishwasher, pick up your toys. I sound like a damn broken record.
At this point I don’t even know why I fold their laundry, because I go into their rooms and it looks like a bunch of monkeys went in rummaging through their dressers.
I yell “If you don’t pick up these legos, I’m just going to vacuum them up!”
Which they don’t and then I vacuum them up and honestly I don’t even think they notice.
I have put their toys in the toy jail and I am pretty sure they are collecting dust they haven’t even noticed or care.
Yelling “I am bored!” well I have a list of lovely things you can do! Now all of a sudden nobodies bored.
Soon they are going to be completely out of toys and I bet you 100% they are going to somehow make a mess with 3 toys.
I am hoping and I am praying that when this is all over or one day when they are older they will start picking up after themselves because I will not be going to their houses and cleaning… I keep repeating to myself because I have a feeling it is going to drive me up the wall if their house is a mess.
I will continue to tell them to clean up, I will continue to tell them to respect your things… hoping one day they will get it.
