Notations

Dear Child(ren) O'Mine,

Please note the following:

  • Duct tape/Glue and band-aids are not interchangeable. In the future, please refrain from the utilization of band-aids for home repairs. In case you were wondering, I found the lamp you shoved in a closet that looks like a victim of a junior scout first aid lesson. It's better that I remain ignorant of the reasoning behind the hatchet job repair.
  • Computer and video game privileges on school days are again in revocation. The opportunity to retain recreational electronic babysitter usage on a limited basis this year has been sacrificed. Complaints may be registered with the sibling who forgot to shower despite utilization of an hour on the computer night before last or the ones who now have "Chore Charts" hanging on the fridge as reminders.
  • Please check the sizes on clothing before putting away laundry. Middle Child's shirts are obscenities on Mom's middle-aged torso. Dad's shorts expose the Boy's backside. (No one really wants to be certain of the answer to , "Boxers or briefs?") If one should mistakenly receive delivery of another's clothing, items may be returned the owner without a detour through the washing and drying cycles.

Love,

Mom

Heh. We began no TV/no Wii yesterday--the first day of school. My youngest reacted as if I'd ripped out his large intestines by hand, but it's for the best. They get to watch/play all weekend long--that's 3 out of 7 days a week!
