All weekend long, people were leaving me presents on the kitchen table. Dirty clothes, shoes, socks, toys, books and just about anything that you can think of non-food related. Several times a day, I was asking people to remove their belongs from the table.
Before we left for the fruit market, I commited the same crime. I left my laptop on the table. When we got back, we were soaking wet, because I accidently left the sun roof open while we were inside and it decided to rain. All the wet items ended up on the table. Including a wet stuffed tiger that landed right on my laptop. I shouted at the top of my lungs, “This is not a dumping ground!!” and start placing all the belongings on the floor.
I seriously lost my temper and was pretty ticked off for the rest of the day because I was told I was being mean. Parenting is not a popularity contest but I felt like I was being taken advantage of because I had been nice about it the whole weekend until the soggy pet landed on my computer. I am not sure how to fix this one but I am feeling a lot better about it today. I am just going to have to make sure that I don’t leave my laptop their anymore.
