Giggle a Moment


Okay folks!I gotta share this little tidbit from my world of "mommyhood" First take a look at the mommy monkey above with her little kiddo! That was me yesterday! At least that is how my brain was operating.....flat with no waves of activity. Or at least that is what it felt like.

After lunch I decided to pull all the kids together to do a bit of cleaning. Literally people, I have not dusted my living room furniture in 3 weeks or is that 4? Shame on "supermom"! Shame Shame on me! Maybe that is why mommy monkey is hiding her head. Maybe she is embarrassed. No she is probably just taking a nap which is what I had to do yesterday afternoon after my "ditsy moment"!

So I went into the laundry room where I keep all of my cleaners and detergents. I grabbed my little dusting cloth and my yellow can of furniture polish. As the children were picking up toys, I started dusting the coffee table and side tables.Buff! Buff! Shine! Shine! Boy,I was really getting into my "wax on, wax off" movements! I was feeling so exhilarated with what I was accomplishing! My cherry finished furniture was looking sleeker by the moment.

Okay. I am spraying that fresh lemon polish all over the tables and dusting away. My 6 year old looks at me strangely and asks, "Mommy, are you trying to keep the bugs out?" I was confused as to why he would ask me this. "No." I answered, "I am dusting the furniture."

Again he asked me if the bugs would go away since I was dusting. Honestly I was getting annoyed by his ongoing questions that did not make a bit of sense. Then suddenly it clicked. I was using the Raid bug spray to polish my furniture!

Can you believe it? Oh how I am reminded each day how much I need the Lord! Anyway, the whole family got a huge laugh out of it. And thankfully the bug spray didn't damage the furniture.
So remember everyone, "A little Raid each day (or every three weeks) will keep the dust away. Raid ! It kills dust on contact! Keep out of reach of children!

P.S. Please do not try this at your home.

Now I would like to know if anyone can beat that one???

This doesn't top yours, but once before automatic icemakers, in the middle of serving drinks at a party, I put the ice trays in the cabinet with the glasses instead of the freezer.
