It’s That Time Of The Year

And no, I’m not talking about Christmas. Although, it is the Christmas season and we did see Santa Claus and go to our local Christmas parade last night.

No, what I’m talking about is that it’s time to clean the boys’ rooms in order to get ready for the holiday season. Now, we do clean their rooms throughout the year, but nothing compares to the cleaning that we do every December. Cody thinks he’s getting out of it by being at Gramma’s house today. But he’s wrong- rather than having two days to clean, he’ll have just one afternoon to get it done.

So far, I’ve had to bribe Evan and Dylan twice, break the room into smaller section to prevent whining, told them that Santa will not bring presents to boys who don’t clean their rooms, and remind Evan that Santa told him that he had three more weeks until Christmas and that Santa is watching.

And it’s only 130pm.

Last night, we froze our extremities off watching the parade and then waiting to see Santa. The boys were really very good the entire time, but Evan had me a little teary eyed.

There was a little girl, maybe 2 years old, who broke her candy cane. She was crying, and Evan, being the little sweetheart that he is, asked me if he could give her one of his candy canes.

Doesn’t it make your heart melt?

Gotta go bribe them again, they’ve found Moonsand and now I don’t hear cleaning.
