Too Busy

Jack and Aidan are busy. Very, very busy. And when you are as busy as they are, you just don't have time to do certain things. Some things just take up sooooooo much time, that you just can't take the time to do them. Frequently, I am reminding them of things they should do, and they tell me "Dat take too long". They are just a victim of the overscheduled lifestyle we live.

A few of the things that take too long:
  • Clearing your plate after dinner.
  • Giving Mommy hugs.
  • Flushing the potty.
  • Washing hands after using the potty.
  • Cleaning up any messes they have made.
  • Waiting for Mommy to meet whatever demand has been made.
  • Waiting for the pancakes to cook.
  • Pulling up pants.
  • Getting dressed in general.
  • Waiting for food to cool down enough to eat it.

What can I say? Some things just take too long. It can't be done.

I totally understand--it is hard to find time for the unimportant things with all they have going on in their lives!
