Kids Just Don't Understand

Way way way back in the 80's there was a song "Parents Just Don't Understand" done by DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince aka.. Will Smith, before he was an actor he was a rapper. Someone needs to update that song and make a "Kids Just Don't Understand" version.....
Yesterday was clean the house day and I drew short straw - clean the upstairs - which actually entails a pre-clean before the actual cleaning can begin.
The pre-clean yesterday consisted of getting all the clothes and other assorted junk off the floor before vacuuming could begin. I take a more tough-love approach to the pre-clean than most others in the house, everything on the floor goes on the bed, in other words I ain't cleaning up their mess.
I didn't hear much complaining until 11:00pm when they got ready for bed and lo' and behold they both discovered that their bed was full of their junk.

How can a girl be so messy? Even the cat is unfazed must mean he's used to it.
I can't believe that "H" has anything left in his closet, but he does.
When it comes to tracking a childs growth most people put a little mark on the doorway molding, not "H" he slaps all of the size stickers from his clothes on his closet doors. Yeah Kids Just Don't Understand......

OMG! I couldn't stop laughing when I read this! Had to read it to my husband. What a great idea, drawing straws...seems like I do all the cleaning here. My son's room would look like your son's minus the stickers on the door! LOL! That is classic! Love it! What would life be without kids???

Enjoy!

Traveling so much I have to pitch in or else......
What really freaks me out is that my daughter "Fine In 09" is a pig, clothes everywhere on the floor, back of chairs etc....and she buys most of her own clothes. Maybe parents "Just Don't Understand"
