10 reasons my house isn't clean after cleaning it all day

My four year old has been a real terror lately. He is the cause of most every mess in my house. Here are the 10 things he did of note today:

1. Threw edamame shells and orange peels all over the kitchen floor.
2. Dumped his entire dresser contents onto bedroom floor.
3. Covered his coat in snow outside and then fell forward into snow (load of laundry)
4. Drew on carpet with yogurt
5. Peed in cat box and all over the floor of the bathroom 9oh and for good measure in front of the garage fridge)
6. Picked up his sisters apple juice cups and dumped them on the floor
7. Tore apart my bedding 30 mins after I made the bed
8. Pulled all the toys out of the living room toy box and threw them all over the living room
9. Poured a cup of water on the computer desk
10. Poured bubble bath all around bath tub, stairs to bathtub and then peed in the bathtub.

Oh and one more for the road, he spread moisturizer on the walls and carpet in the living room.

Aren't you glad you aren't going to be his Kindergarten teacher?

Just a late night, quick hi to introduce me to you.

I'm Laurie, 32. Grew up in Los Angeles. Got married at 20 to S. We have 3 kids, a dog, a cat and some fish. We moved late last year from Orange County, CA to Suburban Denver, CO.

S has been home for the last 9 months. He has mostly been supporting our family from his poker income and from the money we made on our California house. Tomorrow all his fun and games are over and he goes back to work. Should be interesting. I've gotten very used to him being around. I know I'll be both sad and happy to see him go ;) Just keeping it real.

My kids are A who will be 12 in less than a week (how this happened I have no idea) E who just turned 9 and J my darling baby boy who is 4.

I know this is a really boring way to start this blog and while I can't really say that anything else I write from here on out will be interesting, I sure hope it will be better than this. We can all at least say a small silent prayer for it. Ha Ha Ha.
