When I say kids, I mean Brett! Sometimes, he does things that only kids do. Sometimes, I feel like I'm married to a 7 year old. I think he does it so that he never gets in trouble, because he knows most of the time I will laugh! Most of the time he is right and I laugh my head off! Let me give you an example.....
I usually do the laundry for us, and 75% of the time Brett is good about helping with folding and putting away his clothes. But 25% of the time I fold his clothes and will put his pile on the bed for him to put away. And 25% of the time that pile sits there, folded, either on the bed or on the floor, for several days. When he's finally had enough of my nagging, he'll put the pile away.
Well on Saturday morning I placed a pile of his clothes on the bed. To my surprise, the pile was gone later that afternoon. I was thrilled Brett put his clothes away without me having to ask or nag......SO I THOUGHT. Sunday afternoon I went to grab something on the night stand by Brett's bed and found the same pile I folded the day before, squished between the bed and the night stand!!!!
He really put them there so he didn't have to put them away and he wouldn't have to hear my complaining! Tell me this isn't something a 5 yr old would do? To them cleaning means hiding things in places that mom won't find them, making mom think they did their chores, and getting that treat mom bribed them with to do the cleaning in the first place!!! Poor Brett doesn't even a get a bribe!
I coudn't help but laugh when I saw the hidden pile of clothes. When I busted Brett he just laughed too. I know these trickes didn't fly by Sheri (Brett's mom) so why does he think they will work on me? Hahahaha, I'm laughing while I write this. Brett is right, most of the time I laugh so much that I can't get mad at him!
Brett says it's what I get for marrying someone younger than him! (I am 6 months older than Brett, pfff)
