    Love the clean washing pile pics!!

    Makes me feel normal, ill be showing dh when he gets home to prove I'm not the only one that can't keep on top of it. The spare room in our house is called "mums washing room" and is usually knee deep in washing with some hanging from coat hangers on the shelves. Even though it looks totally unorganised I do have a system. I chuck the kids clothes on the bed, dh,s behind the door and mine on the floor so I can kind of narrow it down when I'm looking for something.

    I would add a pic but the MIL came down yesterday so I actually spent the entire previous day folding it and putting it away and you can see the floor for the ist time in months. MIL never says anything about it but she has on occasion folded some stuff and given me "helpful" advice like "fold it as you get you go" grrrr

    Haha! It's kind of squashed into the corner and leaning against the wall. Every time someone searched for something it would end up spread all over the floor and we'd have to stack it all up again. It was quite a workout actually!

We prank our kids all the time wrap up fake presents, fill empty lemonade bottles with water, pretend to eat their Lolly bags from kids parties, dh makes ds put on dd dress & dance before he says he can play the game console, eat ice cream in front of them, the list goes on. Despite all this we have 2 really well adjusted kids! Lol.
    Ha ha we do something similar. We make the kids do a "silly dance" if they want dessert. It's hilarious especially after a few drinks.

    Speaking of bathing in buckets.. I put DS2 in his brother's boat while they are in the bath. He screams if I try to lie him down after being in it.

    More: DS always wants to play games on my phone but I want to lurk on here and Facebook so he doesn't get to
    SDS (8) is a sensitive soul and doesn't take jokes that well. Regardless, his dad and I play jokes to 'toughen him up' (DFs idea, not mine). He really didn't like the name we picked for a girl baby so we started calling him by the name so he would 'get used to it'. Ended in tears. Hilarious. We told him that our house was so small the baby would have to sleep in his room and he'd have to bring him to me for feeds and also change his nappy as the baby 'belongs to the whole family and everyone has to do their part'. Also hilarious. Don't think we've done any lasting damage but some kids take themselves so seriously! It's our job as parents to lighten them up I reckon
