Ah the New Year, a time to wipe the slate clean and start fresh, a time for new beginnings and resolutions. I am looking forward to the New Year because I have been taking stock of my household and there are a few things that need to change over here at Casa de Crazy and they all seem to have one thing in common…my children.
So I have decided to come up with 5 New Year’s resolutions that will bring a whole lot more happiness and a whole lot less screaming to my cray cray little family. Take a peek and see if these could work for you.
1.I will no longer start off a sentence with don’t, you know as in don’t kill your sister. Instead I will now turn to said sister hitter and calmly state ‘homicide is not a good way to start off the morning.’ I won’t let on to who the victim will be, it’s good to keep them on their toes.
2.I will explain why something is not nice, as in it’s not nice to flush a Glade plug in down the toilet, it makes daddy get all red in the face and then he needs a big gulp of Jack and Coke to calm down.
3.I will pick my battles because really when it comes down to it, is not finishing all of your peas as big of a deal as oh I don’t know…..flushing a Glade plug in down the toilet because you don’t like the way it smells? I mean yes I get it, you no like banilla but you know what, you could have thrown it in the trash. Yes, I know you can still smell the banilla in the trash but really was flushing it necessary? You could have just let it float and then daddy wouldn’t have had to take a sledge hammer to the brand new toilet.
4.I will cook only one dinner because I am not a short order cook. Oh and by the way, since you flushed the Glade plug in down the toilet damn skippy you’re eating your peas tonight little girl.
5.Instead of saying no all the time, I will say ‘yes but we can do it at such and such a time,’ as in ‘Yes we can read a story but we will have to do it after mommy and daddy meet with the insurance adjuster about the water damage in the bathroom from when you flushed the glade plug in down the toilet.’
I am pretty sure that these resolutions are going to make for a much more streamlined household, especially since we switched to Scentsy plug-in for our bathrooms. They are much to big to flush.
