Happy Birthday Boyo!

C.A.A.D.D

Because it is Wednesday and rather than give you a Wordless Wednesday I give you the following funny of the day :). Today's funny was provided by my SIL from NY, she has 3 little boys and she is due any day with her first little girl.

The story resembles my every day life in so many levels it is unnerving! Enjoy :)

Recently, I was diagnosed with C. A. A. D. D. - Child Activated Attention Deficit Disorder.

This is how it manifests:
I decide to do the laundry. As I start toward the laundry room, I notice that there are cheerios all over the floor and my car keys are in the cereal bowl. I decide to pick up the cheerios before I do the laundry. I lay my car keys down on the counter, put the cheerios in the trash can under the counter, and notice that the trash can is full. So, I decide to take out the trash. But then I think, since I'm going to be near the mailbox when I take out the trash I may as well pay the bills first. I take my checkbook off the table, and see that there is only one check left, my extra checks are in my desk in the office/playroom, so I go to my desk where I find a sippy cup full of juice.

I'm going to look for my checks, but first I decide I should put sippy cup in the refrigerator to keep it cold. As I head toward the kitchen with the sippy cup, a vase of flowers on the counter catches my eye--they need to be watered. I set the sippy cup on the counter, and I discover baby wipes that I've been searching for all morning. I decide I better put them back in the bathroom, but first I'm going to water the flowers.  I set the wipes back down, fill a container with water and suddenly I spot the TV remote, one of the kids left it on the kitchen table. I realize that when they go to watch TV, I will be looking for the remote as they fight over who lost it, but I won't remember that it's on the kitchen table, so I decide to put it back in the den where it belongs, but first I'll water the flowers.

I splash some water on the flowers, but most of it spills on the floor. So, I set the remote back down, get some paper towels and wipe up the spill. Then I head down the hall trying to remember what I was planning to do.  At the end of the day: the laundry isn't washed, the bills aren't paid, there is a warm cup of juice sitting on the counter, the flowers aren't watered, there is still only one check in my checkbook, I can't find the remote, I can't find the wipes, and I don' t remember what I did with the car keys.  Then when I try to figure out why nothing got done today, I'm really baffled because I know I was busy all day long, and I'm really tired.

I realize this is a serious problem, and I'll try to get some help for it, but first I'll check my e-mail.  Do me a favor, will you? Forward this message, because I don't remember to whom it has been sent. Don't laugh -- if this isn't you yet, your day is coming.

I laughed until I cried! This reminded me of a quote I read once by Phyllis Diller. She said that cleaning the house when you have kids is like shoveling snow during a snowstorm! That is my motto! When hubby says the house is a mess, I tell him that I just can't keep up with six kids :D

Whitney

OMG! You just summed up my entire existence right now! ROFL

There's only one cure for this (that I can think of), and it rhymes with "Girth Funtrole".

Have a good weekend!

I often wonder what I'll do with all my time when the kiddos are off on their own ;) Cleaning a house shouldn't take all darn day but mine seems to mess up all around me so that you can't hardly tell that I even started, lol. I just have to console myself with the fact that at least it smells nicer when I'm done. Have a great day!

Bethany

oh, yeah...definitely sounds familiar, lol!

Kim

Hey, I think I have that too!

Mary

LOL! That routine sounds familiar ;)
