And it confuses me. I thought I had some really great ideas. They included:
Painting the house.
Cleaning some one's room.
Giving the dog a bath.
Reading a book.
Playing in their room with a few
Playing in the basement
Riding a bike or scooter
Cleaning the bathroom
Sweeping the floors
Changing your sister's diaper
None of the above worked, so I took out the heavy guns:
If there is nothing in this house to amuse you, I will clean out your room with a trash bag so you are not bothered by all that "stuff".
It bought me 30 minutes of quiet. And a quick happy dance that there is still 2 days of school left.
