Ok! Thanks, Venus! That suggestion is working really well!!
Now, the next problem: sigh You always seem to have 1 more… then 1 more.. Well, that’s life! Jesus said;
John 16:33 “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”
Problems are a normal part of the fallen human condition. Everybody has ’em!!
Alright, what is it this time? It’s about uniforms still. STILL??
Well, not just uniforms, exactly, about clothes in general. And??? You’re tired of wearing them??
Well, yes I am, but that’s not it. (Exasperated) WHAT???? IS.IT.THIS.TIME??
Sorry!! Quit hollerin at me! (Deep breath) Ok, sorry. But if you don’t say it this time, I’m gonna slap you upside the head!
I get really aggravated, because the girls’ clothes seem to disappear in thin air! I keep tellin them to put dirties in the black hamper, which is conveniently right in front of the washer. Maybe there’s a black hole in the middle of the house?? Maybe the apartment got relocated in the Bermuda Triangle in the middle of the night??
Ok, you tell them what to do. They know where, and how to do it. What’s the problem? Getting them to actually DO it!!
Sounds like a discipline problem to me…. Ok, then what method do you suggest I use to discipline them with?? Can’t spank, cuz of the abuse they went thru… nagging never works… See my dilemma here? Yeah….
Maybe a basketball hoop over the hamper?? Negative. They have shown ZERO interest in sports. Well, what have they shown interest in? Petting the cats…
I guess we can’t put the cats in the hamper, and they get extra cuddle time, if they put their clothes in the hamper?? Umm, I’m thinkin SPCA, or Mommy, or both, might have a teensy bit of a problem with that! Yep, big ole N to the ope, there!!
Let them run outta clean clothes, and just rewear dirty?? Oh yeah, right. We’ve already been investigated once by DCF, [ thanks to their i. dad], and they found all the charges were made up. I don’t think we’d slide by so easily with that one!
Uh, let them run outta clean clothes and go na DON’T EVEN SAY what you’re thinkin!! That’s an even BIGGER negatory there!! Even tho they might enjoy it, NO!!
Well, what else are they interested in?? PP is addicted to Minecraft. And for CC, it’s glitter. I see, hmm let me think…
I don’t suppose you would turn the hamper into a part of the Minecraft game? Like, how would that even work?? How do I know?? I’m just supposed to think of suggestions, it’s your job to work out how!
N.O! So, I guess that also means CC couldn’t dip all her clothes in glitter, if they make it into the hamper??
Well, I’m slap outta ideas then. You’re on your own now!
Ooooh, Venus!!! Girl, we gotta talk….
