If you ask a mom to help you get dressed, she will come into your room and notice that it is VERY messy.
She will decide it is time to make you share a room with your brother and completely re-organize and clean the room including moving furniture and putting all the toys in your brother’s room, to later become the playroom with a LOCKED DOOR.
While she is cleaning your room, she will realize it is 3 o’clock and she has not fed you lunch. She will go to the kitchen and begin to pull things out of the fridge to make lunch. She will realize that the fridge is gross and decide it needs cleaned so she’ll take some cleaner to the bath tub and begin soaking and scrubbing all the fridge shelves and drawers.
While she is scrubbing away, she will remember that the fridge in the garage is ten times worse than the upstairs fridge and rope your oldest brother into carrying the shelves and drawers back and forth while she scrubs.
While she is scrubbing shelves and drawers, she will realize that the toilet also needs scrubbed and while she is running clean water in the tub, she will scrub the toilet also.
After she is done with all of that scrubbing she will realize she needs a shower, but that there is NO WAY she is setting foot inside that tub until it is clean, so she will scrub it also even though it was just done two days ago…..
While she is returning the cleaners to the kitchen she will remember that she never had lunch and find the ham you put in the butter dish and on the counter. While she is cleaning that up and munching on a handful of blackberries she will remember that she needs to put up the green beans, so she starts boiling water.
While she is blanching green beans and waiting to transfer the beans to ice water she will see that her vitamin container is empty and she will fill it. Then she will see the tomatoes that still need to be put up, and transfer them all to bowls in the newly cleaned fridge.
While she is putting the tomatoes in the fridge the timer will go off and she will continue working on draining the beans, blanching, and cooling them down with more ice.
While she is getting ice from the freezer she will see her secret hidden candy bar and eat “just one square” for a treat.
While she is concentrating on green beans she will be scared by her husband coming home from working overtime because she has no idea where she left her phone and didn’t hear it ring when he called.
While talking to her husband she will realize it is dinner time and she has nothing started and nothing planned, but two fridges, the boy’s bed room, the bathtub and toilet are all spotless. She will still need a shower and she will still be hungry from not having lunch. She will think ordering pizza for dinner sounds good…….and YOU will have a clothes for the day, a clean bedroom and pizza for dinner…….
