Skip to my Lou...

I worked all evening to clean up a very messy bedroom! A bedroom that was predominantly made so messy by a little girl named Miles. Throwing cups under or behind the bed. Tossing grapes around with wild abandonment. Throwing cracker crumbs off the edge of the bed.

I made a new rule tonight. No food or drink in the room. Period. End of story...

Unless supervised.

Probably an hour later, they both lie together watching Care Bears movie* and sipping away on cups of juice.

(Sigh)

* This is the very same movie that my dad dropped my sister and I off to see at a Baton Rouge theater when I was about 8 and she was about 11. The times, they are a-changing...

Regardless...the title of this post relflects my children's insane excitement at having an open space again (as oppossed to a river of toys and books on the floor) to Skip to my Lou!

That's so funny that you made that rule & quickly abandoned it one hour later... lol
