Oh, the Madness

In my wildest imagination, I couldn't make up the things I see/hear on a daily, and sometimes even hourly, basis. Having a brood of boys (and sometimes my girl shocks me, too) is not for the faint of heart, dear innocent ones.

This is my "Exhibit A" for July 12, 2010. I walked into *MY* bedroom to merely fold a pile of laundry when I saw this odd scene on, and apparently hanging from, my north-facing window:



Upon closer inspection I discovered, what appeared to be, utter carnage. No mercy. No survivors... and a wad of chewed up gum right behind the morbidly twisted leg of the soldier on the right.



And LOOK at how FILTHY all that war made my windows!!!! It looks like they haven't been cleaned in a YEAR. It's absolute chaos around here, folks... CHAOS, I tell ya!!

I feel like I'll just.... JUST.....

....go get my bottle of Windex and a piece of t.p. for the gum and move along with the rest of my day.

Boys.

Gayle, I laughed out loud at this post!!

And let me tell ya, it isn't just boys! I see and hear things around here that cause me no end of bemusement and bafflement!

I laughed also because I could so identify with this post!

Thanks for the smiles!

LOL! I love this post! I'm glad my boys aren't the only ones who do this sort of thing. I love my Mr Clean Magic Erasers, and my trusty spray bottles.

LOVE IT! I have two boys and a girl...the girl is the Peanut Butter between the two boys....she sticks to both...and they put the PB everywhere....the 8 yr old blaming the 4 yr old and the 4 yr old making us laugh at anything and everything....right now, he's telling his sister...."If you want to clean up, you can clean up. If you want to play...you can play WITH ME...I'm waiting and waiting..."...he'll play, but let his sister clean~
