There's really 5 of them!

There are times when I am out with all of my kids and people stare..at times they gawk with disbelief. Sometimes they even ask me "Are those all yous?" "My Goodness,how in the world do you do it?" "I only have 2 I just can't imagine that with 3 boys" If they only knew..in reality I have 5. If I don't count my husband then I am not being honest at all. He is a tad bit better than he used to be but my Lord he is still bad. He has no clue what it takes to make things work..I mean really they say they understand but there is no way that they can.

Perfect example and I had to document it. He recently started his new job alittle over a month ago and he is just now getting his uniforms. He called me and told me he was coming home to eat his lunch and bring his clothes home. When he left to go back to work these were the remains.



This was what I found after he left..he brought them home..changed into one of them and left the rest right in the middle of our bed. How much more time would it have taken to hang them in the closet instead of lay them on the bed?



Oh yes..my favorite..the lunch. He ate and when he walked out the door to go back to work this was what was left. Oh my..what would I do without 5 of them..sleep,read,blog,scrapbook..oh no I forgot what that was like!



This is actually a bit surprising. Most of the time when he puts a shirt on and decides not to wear it he will just leave it on the bed and believe it or not this was the 3rd shirt that day. He left the other two on the bed but put this one back up. Of course you can see how it was left.



And the famous shoes...these are always somewhere in our house and almost never in the closet where they belong.

So you see I really do..I have 5 children that I have to constantly pick up after and take care of. It never ends..I should have a shirt that declares my findings.

I can't say that my husband is better than me at putting his stuff away... well most of it anyway.

You are too funny! I love this post. My husband is the same way so I guess I can say I really have 5 too. I get all the stares and comments too. It really gets old doesn't it.

Love your site... Thank you for stopping by and giving me the encouraging words regarding my attempt to stop smoking. Day 2 is officially under way.

Windy said...

Amen, sister! I always say I have 3kids, a husband and a MIL (cause she never leaves) :)

I think all husbands are the same!

Alicia said...

LOL..that is totally my husband with the clothes too!!!!!!!!!!! He never hangs it back up if he's not going to wear it!!! Okay..so, I have six!

Yup yup.. I have two... Surprisingly I can't find anything in our room right now that he left out, but maybe that's because he is still in pajamas right now! haha..

For better or worse, for cleanliness and filth......oh, wait, I'm pretty sure that wasn't in the vows!

Oh yes, that "5th" child. I have one too but I sure am grateful that I do ;-)

I love it when people look at us funny because of the kids. Really, 4 children ISN'T that many. I found that the 1st child is the hardest because it's all new, the 2nd is easier but you're trying to figure out how to deal with 2 kids at one time. When #3 + comes along you're really grooving and it's no big deal. Heck, what's one more kid, really?

Heather said...

I'm right there with you. I always tell people that I have two children & the biggest one causes the most problems!

I really have 3 then! Ryan hardly ever picks up after himself! I agree with MiMi..it is very frustrating! I find all kinds of clothes and shoes all over the house and they would stay there for who knows how long if I didn't pick them up and put them away! Just know that we are right there with you on this one! LOL!

Liz said...

that's hilarious..I mean to me not to you! i always count my husband as one extra... but right now I am counting him as two extra because of his foot...

All these B's and Me! said...

I know EXACTLY how you feel!! It never get's better.. only more frustrating when you add kids to the mix. :o) Hang in there babe.
