Mom vs. The Children: The Living Room


Toot! Toot! Did you hear that? I am tooting my own horn for “Mom of the Year!”

Why? Because I have given over the living room. I have relinquished my control over to the children. No more appropriate furniture placement and decorum. I have submitted to allowing them to keep the furniture pushed up against the walls so they can takeover the living room floor. Of course, this new space has added new challenges and conversations:

“You MAY NOT play soccer in the house!”

“The dog may not play soccer in the house.”

(sigh) “Your sister is not the Mom and you still may not play soccer in the house.”

“Please DO NOT shoot the dog and your sister while playing soccer in the house.”

“In fact, shooting the doors, windows and walls are not a good idea either…”

“If you shoot ME again I will kick you with the soccer ball.”

As you can understand from the above monologue that the children have taken their new freedom a little far. It seems as though the living room is now a sports field. Their most superior argument is that it is dark outside. Meanwhile, I have a Nerf bullet embedded 20 feet up in my tongue and groove ceiling…we have been aiming at it but can’t seem to bring the bugger down.

For now, I will let them have their home field, and if I pull one more Nerf bullet off of my derriere, privileges may change…

Happy Tuesday!
