Murphy's Law for Parents

1. The tennis shoes you must replace today will go on sale next week.

2. Leakproof thermoses will.

3. The chances of a piece of bread falling with the grape jelly side down is directly proportional to the cost of the carpet.

4. The garbage truck will be two doors past your house when the argument over whose day it is to take out the trash ends.

5. The shirt your child must wear today will be the only one that needs to be washed or mended.

6. Gym clothes left at school in lockers mildew at a faster rate than other clothing.

7. The item your child lost, and must have for school within the next ten seconds, will be found in the last place you look.

8. Sick children recover miraculously when the pediatrician enters the treatment room.

9. Refrigerated items, used daily, will gravitate toward the back of the refrigerator.

10. Your chances of being seen by someone you know dramatically increase if you drive your child to school in your robe and curlers

hahaha, i can relate to some of these, and in our home the food spills -- the nastiest juice, milk, soup, and gravy ones nearly ALWAYS happen after i have finally finished cleaning the floor for the week (or not yet). my easy way out is to use napkins and Chlorox wipes, vs having to mop it down... doesn't always work, but if i get away with that, why not, saves the mopping hassle, hehe! ;p whatever works!

TGIF, SAHM! i trust you've had a busy but meaningful week. Blessed weekend to u n family :).
