I'm sitting here doing my Sunday morning leisurely computer surf: Checking out post secret, updating my good reads, reading the news and other blogs, looking at my coupon lists, etc. I'm doing it a bit late this morning because of the time change (not thrilled about this happening in March), and the kids are just playing happily behind me.
I turn around and see that they have moved all the furniture in the house to one spot to make some sort of fort (well, the furniture they were able to move anyway). I told them that they had to immediately move it all back, and they "can't."
It's too hard! It's too heavy! I can't do it!
Wailing and gnashing of teeth ensue.
How is it that they have super human abilities when they are making the mess, but when it comes time to clean it up they suddenly lose all of their strength and prowess? And why is it that when the mess is being made behind my back, I hear happy sounds of girls playing together, and when I ask them to clean it up the joy turns to anguish and complaining.
I mean, they're still moving furniture around. What's the big difference? :)
