Spic and Span

Every so often I issue warnings that if I find toys where they don’t belong ONE MORE TIME that the offending toys will be given or thrown away. So, recently after repeated instructions that the toy balsa wood airplanes DO NOT BELONG ON THE KITCHEN COUNTER, the planes were put away.

Several days passed and peace prevailed as the counter was clean and tidy. A place for everything and everything in its place. Mary Poppins has nothing on me!

Or so I thought. Noah cracked and confessed that Joel put them in the kitchen pantry “because Dad said you wouldn’t find them in there.”

So I opened the pantry and there they were! And I obviously had not been in the pantry. I didn’t know whether to laugh or be mad.

Post Script:

I originally posted this story on Facebook and my sister, Cyndi, posted the following comment:

“A) Too funny about Joel because he was right…the pantry for you is like a foreign country.

B) I take issue with you comparing yourself to Mary Poppins and order. I’ve seen your closet. It’s like a crazy college party where one shoe invited another and that shoe invited two purses and so on until it’s shoes and purses everywhere and only a CSI team could ever clean it up.”
