Reason No. 285
Me: What was that?
Hot Rod: us?
Me: Yeah, but what was it?
Hot Rod: the laundry basket?
Hmmm. I try to ignore it and continue writing.
Then the saga gets richer. In comes Little Bit with a stuffed animal and a tissue requesting tape.
Me: Why do you need tape?
Little Bit: For a cast.
Okeyyyy dokeyyyyy. At least they're playing peacefully and not bickering like their Granny and Papa for a change.
Then, the red alert noises start blaring in my head when I hear Hot Rod:
"There is no rule about seat belts."
This is the stopping point. I walk in to find pillows all along the bottom of the stairs and a laundry basket containing a stuffed penguin "secured" in place by two toy mops criss-crossed inside the basket and poking out each side.
Nope, nope, nope. This stops now, I tell them to cries of WHY?
Really? You don't see anything wrong with this picture kids? Gees Louise.
