Jada is a sweet little thing...but really has a hard time sometimes coming down from her cloud to the real world. That's one of the things I love about her...it's also one of the things she ends up getting in trouble for.
We have rules in the house...there's 6 of us, so we all have to follow them. There are basic things:
*pick up after yourself*
*only one toy out at a time*
*no snacks without permission*
*dirty clothes in the hamper*
*listen the first time*
*no complaining ever about food*
*we are family and we stick together*
and the big one...
(I know, it shouldn't bug me so much)
*shoes in your basket in the front closet*
So I find Jada's shoes out in the playroom. (insert growl and huff here)
I say, "Jada, please come and put your shoes at the front door where they belong."
This is what I found
I turned my head to the side (like a dog trying to figure things out) and chuckled, then shook my head.
I'm taking victory in the fact that she listened.
...and noticing that the front door needs repainted. That's just sad.
Any color suggestions?
