The kids always take everything apart in our house. I can't have any area that looks like a "normal" house or "presentable" when they are around. Please tell me that I'm not the only one. As someone who likes a bit of "order" to her life, we often, if not daily (that is the kids and I) battle over this.
Tonight for example I went thru the formal living room to discover they had the piano bench stacked on top of another chair. It was precarious at best. They were tossing a stuffed animal across the room and over this creation and I came down the stairs in time to see Laney fall into this piled mess.
"Why can't we have the piano bench up to the piano like a normal family?" I said with much exasperation.
"Cause we aren't normal." says Laney
