Yesterday I was losing it over homework and called Chris to complain about it for 2 minutes.

It was about 5pm and I knew he would be on his way home from work. I gave Phoenyx a graham cracker and Charlotte was watching TV on the couch.

I walked outside on the back porch.

2.5 minutes later Charlotte opens the door “Mom! You have to see this.”

Me: “Charlotte, it was me that gave him the graham cracker. I’ll clean it up when I come in.”

Charlotte: “It’s NOT a graham cracker. You need to come in.”

Me stomping back inside….walking into kitchen.

Corn meal.

He emptied an entire bag of corn meal and then attempted to “sweep it up”, which basically translates to spreading through the house with the broom.

Corn meal is such a fine grain and VERY dusty. It took a Dyson, a broom, and a steam mop just to get most of it up. Then we had to pull out the fridge, re-sweep, re-mop and I am still wiping off things today.

Before you ask, I had a LOCK on the pantry but he is smart enough to unlock it now.

On the bright side, corn meal is super soft… I think there may be some benefit to your skin and exfoliation.

My feet are extra smooth today.

    Take comfort in the fact that “one day” you will look back at this and have a HUGE smile and remember that it ended all too soon!
