Does Anyone Feel My Pain

My 7 year old son has hordes of amazing attributes however cleanliness is not one of them. I guess listening (to his mother) doesn’t rank up there either.

A daily conversation with Blake might go something like this….

Me: “Bay, would you please take your uniform out of your school bag, fold it nicely and put it in your drawer.”

Blake: (even looking at me eye-to-eye) “Yes, Mom.”

Later when walking by Blake’s room this is what I find….

Does anyone feel my pain?

Maybe it's a middle child middle one is naturally VERY messy!

His older brother cleans and organizes things regularly, but I can hardly get Jonah to throw his dirty clothes into the laundry basket. :)

I'm definitely feeling your pain!

I not only feel your pain I shared it with my daughter (who remains nameless in this blog)when she was about that age and on and on and on. I guess some things we blot out of our memory huh Michelle.
Guess who?
