When the dish soap is all gone,
When the last of the peanut butter is on a sticky knife (with a fly trapped in it),
CLEAN THE KNIFE AND BUY MORE PEANUT BUTTER!
When there is one sheet of toilet paper on the roll,
REPLACE IT! (or you’ll find that roll under your pillow)
When you’ve made your sandwich,
PUT EVERYTHING AWAY!
When you see that I’ve just mopped the kitchen floor,
TAKE YOUR MUDDY BOOTS OFF!
When the phone is ringing and I’m in the shower,
PICK IT UP!
When you use a tissue to blow your nose,
THROW IT AWAY! (You’re not going to use it again, and we have about a dozen boxes of Kleenex)
When you have eaten everything on your plate except for one pea, a scrap of potato and a teaspoon of stew,
DON’T PUT IT IN A CONTAINER AND SHOVE IT TO THE BACK OF THE ‘FRIDGE–NO ONE’S GOING TO EAT IT!
Speaking of the above, when you’ve saved half a cupcake for two weeks in the ‘fridge and I’ve eaten it,
DON’T BE SURPRISED!
