If you read my post from last week about the bird that flew into my house and then proceeded to shit purple shit all over the place, you will understand just where I am in my life!
If not, here is a brief recap: There are 2 bushes/shrubs off my verandah that have hear dark purple berries on them. The birds eat the berries and then shit everywhere!
The birds eat the berries then shit all over my verandah!
So, this afternoon I had a brain wave!
After my kids complained for the 100th time that they were bored, I tasked them with the “super fun” and “helpful and important” game. The game of picking ALL the berries off the bushes so the birds don’t make a mess!
They thought this was a fabulous idea, and totally understood how they were “helping mommy!”
After they were all ‘set’, I did what any mother in her right mind on a Friday afternoon would do. I poured myself a glass of wine and took pictures. Just to have proof of my genius idea of how to keep kids busy and have fun.
Bonus points: it’s outdoors in all the nature.
Unfortunately, by the time I finished writing up this hilarious post filled with inspiration, sarcasm and wine, they had given up with the ‘boring’ task. They are now back on the iPad asking Siri random questions. Questions such as, “How many sleeps until Easter?”!
It was fun while it lasted!
Happy Friday people! Enjoy your weekend. Don’t forget to check back in next week for more fun and inspiring ideas on how to keep your kids busy. Busy enough so you can get shit done whilst drinking wine (and blogging)!
