Kids need rules, directions & responsibilities🤷🏾‍♀️

Advertisements

I know I can most likely speak for 80% of parents when I say laundry is evil! 

  • Petty
  • Vindictive 
  • Neverending
  • Trying 
  • Boring
  • Frustrating
  • Anxiety trigger
  • Drug/Alcohol trigger
  • Ongoing like the *Energizer Bunny*😭😭

We need to hire employees…..

Calling everybody in the house who don’t pay bills…

 

Gather up your kids who wear clothes too. Let’s play “clean, dry, & fold”. 

Everything’s more exciting as a game!

 

 

 

 

 

You know the old saying *work smarter not harder* Yes that goes for parenting too…..

Take some of your small laundry tasks and help your child excell in each while conquiring that parent goal of *raising independent adults*…no age limit required!

 

Suggestions for tasks…

*ninja clothes separator* or sorter..lol (color, fabric, material) *explain why we sort laundry…so we don’t ruin our clothing* kids need to know why they’re doing things or they will do them their way when your not watching👀

 

 

  • Laundry measure & pour *designee* 

 

  • Pick someone to put laundry in the washing machine after the *ninja clothes separator* is finished

 

  • Pick someone else if possible to put laundry in the dryer after the washers done with a fabric sheet…*explain why* or they will not use them when you’re not watching😎

 

  • Allow each child the opportunity to pick through the dried clothes to find all their hidden clean clothes *treasure*

 

  • Allow each child to fold & put away their own folded laundry treasure with their very own *treasure basket* 😂

 

  • Give rewards for not having to fix hangers, drawers, etc from *misplaced laundry* 😱 or as I call them #lazykids🤦🏽‍♀️

 

Parents they’re sneaky & you know it! Don’t trust them🙌🏾 they will after all that hard work throw it behind the bed, on the closet floor, stuff it in drawers…etc. *CHECK*

Many may not even care but as a mom of 4, I had to take charge. Everything should have its *own* home to ensure organization & cleanliness for the both of you.

Ever wake up to “mom” where are my socks, “mom” wheres my shoes? “mom” I have no clean underwear/panties/boxers/briefs….get it?

#sleepinever?

I personally have a place for everything because if you dont…they surely will drive you insane!

  • School shirts & pants…hung up in the closet. Two pair of pants per hanger (prevents breaking) but get wild with the leggings.
  • All panties, socks, and undershirts in one drawer.
  • Another drawer for pajamas & play clothes.
  • We also have a coat & shoe closet all organized…no need to search & mess up in the process.
  • In my girl’s room, they have a coathanger and that’s where they keep shaw’s, light jackets, pullovers, etc (light wear/delicates)

 

Your kids aren’t going to volunteer to help you clean unless you make it fun!

Encourage them and be very supportive!

Like men, you have to constantly “stroke their ego”..ijs lol

Don’t constantly tell them it’s not right because they’ll become discouraged.

Just be patient and show them why it’s not right in your eyes (don’t expect them to be O.C.D.)

 

Enjoy laundry with your children from now on!

 

Maybe one day you’ll be able to say what you been wanting to say for years…

“Family Night” & “The Struggle”….

Advertisements

I’M *JUST* going to *DIVE* right into this!

Family night with your kids is much-needed after a long stressful week of working the 9-5 life.

  • Some are working and going to school.
  • Others are working, going to school, and have to come home and compensate for an absent parent. (That is my category right there)...😫

Parenting is a loopy, curvy, swervvy road that never ends….ever!

I would have to say “your lil broke best friends are leeches as well”…lol

The other night we were having a family night and O.M.G everyone was hungry!!! I then realized I forgot to take out dinner…😟😬

I do not think so “Potty mouth Paula”

My baby girl is grown!!

O.M.G.

 

I have a daughter who just turned 20 in February. My baby girl is an absolute rider and always has been! Raising girls is like getting a bad haircut….you’ll mostly cry and at times pure anger will consume your soul. Most importantly the upkeep and maintenance will involve a bunch of T.L.C. and patience. Watching your hair growth will be so exciting but you’re going to have to wear styles not always as flattering as you would like.  

Fast forward from birth to last night…..

 

Three of my daughters’ close friends from childhood came over to stay the night…..keep in mind nobody likes staying at my house. I do not run the teen fun farm and if anything it’s the complete opposite for two major reasons…

 

  • I don’t like to hear the grown conversations our future generations of women are talking about!
  • I refuse to clean up after grown women and they are messy yall!

 

These young girls went to her room, closed the door, and then had the audacity to proceed with a story that involved cursing as the fluent language of choice!

 

Do you know my mom would have tied my tongue into multiple knots!

 

Me…

Are yall in there cursing because you can be grown all day outside but not up in here…

Them…

I’m sorry Miss Shamara

Me again throwing out some food for though…..

What type of man do you think you’ll attract talking like that?

Them…

huh

 

Mothers of this Future Generation of  Women:

 

Please don’t allow your children to disrespect your home once they are grown.

The respect they had growing up should never leave and the fear should never die if you ever had it to begin with. As her mother, you are the top head honcho in charge of the Jungle while the kings away….

I will attack you…

 

My daughter kept telling them they would not be welcome over anymore if they don’t watch their mouth!

They sure didn’t hear her talking this way in my home nor have they ever!

 

Don’t get it twisted I ain’t dumb, deaf, or blind. I know my daughter curses but she respects me enough to not do it in my presence purposely.

 

I do correct her if she slips up (dealing with life) but her reaction is to apologize immediately thereafter.

Sorry Mom

 

Once you stop correcting them they will think they are more grown than you and everything you taught them is out the window…..

 

A major issue with this generation of young men and women!

 

NEVER STOP CORRECTING…..and they should never stop “Respecting”!
