    I'm stressed out! Thought we could do something fun to take our minds off anything that is bugging us (I have a long list).

    How many siblings do YOU have?
    Do they have kids?
    1 younger brother, he has 2 boys the same age as my girls - 4 & 7 (weird, huh?)

    What's the biggest mess you've had in your house lately? (caused by you or the kids or someone else)
    My 4 year old got a hold of some nail polish - on dressers, wall, toys and herself. Will be seeing that polish for many years. Glad I like the color (red)

    Who's next?

    How many siblings do YOU have? Do they have kids?
    1 younger brother. He passed away 9 years ago. He had 1 child. I haven't gotten to see her since about a month after the funeral.

    What's the biggest mess you've had in your house lately?
    I hadn't been keeping up with the house since I was sick. It is just starting to get back on track. It boils down to mom wasn't picking up after everyone and the house showed it.

    The boys got into a bottle of pinkish/purplish polish. It is still on my bathroom cabinets and other places. Every once in a while I love it when they come ask me "how did that get there?" I actually liked the color at one time now a few years later I think why did I buy that?

    We repainted their bedroom a year ago. Not one week after we finished painting it they decorated it with Sharpie. There room is still that way. I'm refusing to repaint until they can learn to stop using my walls as their art projects. Though you can tell their "art" is getting better. I won't tell them that though they think I'm still mad about them decorating.

    Oh Sara! I'm so sorry about your brother

    When mom doesn't pick up everything, our house looks like it could be on an episode of hoarders!

    Do they have kids?
    6 brothers with 1 deceased & 1 sister. My sister has a boy & he is 7.5. 3 of my brothers have older kids in their mid 20's. 1 has 1 girl, 1 has 1 boy, & 1 has 3 girls.


    What's the biggest mess you've had in your house lately? spilled milk but I didn't have to clean it up the kids did. So mine would be general everyday cleaning. We just dump & move on during the week(newspapers, mail, school work) & cleanup & organize on the weekends. I also just reorganized the basement for DH but I did not/would not touch his tools. So he needs to put them away.
    Me, DH, DD(5), DS(5)

    1 younger brother, he has 1 boy who is 18 months younger than DD1 and 9 months older than DS- it's perfect.

    What's the biggest mess you've had in your house lately?
    Probably my garage after the long busy summer. It's full of bikes, a trike, scooters, a plasma car, the power wheel Escalade, a half dozen tennis racquets, several buckets of balls, gear bags of all sorts, taekwondo sparring gear, a summer camp trunk, sand toys, a slip-n-slide, super saokers, bags of out grown summer clothes and somewhere... my SUV.
