Clean Up Yo S**t

Tis’ the holiday season. Whether you are hosting Christmas for the family, or you need to try and clear out some toys to make room for the new toys. I am sure your playrooms show a similar fate. One of my favorite things to do, and my Facebook friends get a kick out of it, is to document our “clean up to s**t episodes.” We were recently renewed for another season and the crowds rejoiced. This edition is brought to you by “mommy is racing you with a black bag.”

Nothing instills more fear that a mom on a mission. Especially when that mission involves a black trash bag. I always wonder, we just had an episode, so why do my kids do this. Are they little A**holes? (cough yes cough) Are they bored? I can’t imagine they need more toys. Regardless, they must like this time that we share together cleaning up allllllll their s**t. We are starting early today in our cleaning endeavors which will either prove to be a good thing. Allowing us more time to veg around, or they will trash the playroom again. I’m taking bets now, any takers? Hopefully you can find time to have a black bag race of your own. I never knew how truly competitive I am until I am in the heat of a black bag race. May the odds be in your favor!
