In upsy-down town...

[Children's bedtime. That charming part of the day when they're tired, you're tired, and you're just pretending to be all calm and natural when ushering them off to bed, but all you're really doing is stopping yourself buying a human-sized slingshot to get the job done quicker.]

Adam (rushing about): Where is Keira's toothbrush?

Me (bastion of wisdom): On the CD cabinet.

Adam: Naturally! Of course it is. When I think of brushing my teeth I immediately go to choose what musical selection to accompany the job. Where is the toothpaste?

Me: On the bookshelf.

Adam (beyond patience): You do it...you just do it....

There's a saying 'everything in its place': we liberally interpret that around here......

I'm certainly with you on the 'slingshot' bedtime.

As for putting things in the wrong place.........I'll just say that I wouldn't be that patient with you myself. He's gotta be a good one.

Thanks. Now I'll be singing Upsy Down Town all day.

Now I don't feel quite so bad about our place. Things end up everywhere, but never has a toothbrush ended up with the CDs!!! I'm impressed!

We tend to put things in 'somewhere safe'...where they are never found again!

That sounds like our house except I'm saying things like, "The toothbrush? In the toothbrush drawer to the left of the sink, dear. Did you look with your eyes, or just your mind?"
