I don’t know about you, but laundry hanging out of every drawer and stacked up on top of the bureau makes me NUTS! Today I couldn’t take it anymore so I stopped what I was doing and started sorting out my oldest son’s drawer.
Not only did I find toddler sized socks (he’s 15 😳) but I also found size 5T jammies.
I also found a bottle of fish food that was dumped on the bottom, who knows when….
I shook out each pair of underwear and each pair of socks and little dried up pieces of fish food fell out of them.
So this leads me to believe a few things.
First of all, one of the kids spilled fish food into another kid’s underwear drawer and didn’t clean it up. They also didn’t tell anybody or ask for help cleaning it up.
Secondly my two teens (13 and 15) are always arguing over socks so I KNOW they both saw the fish food and decided to just wear the socks with fish food on them and not clean up the mess.
Is wearing fish food socks and underwear itchy? Smelly? I’m going to say yes.
Since my 8 year old owns the fish, he is getting the blame for this one.
Clearly the others noticed and ignored it.
EDIT: The 15 year old son also happens to be a genius when it comes to anything related to reading, writing or language so I asked him to give me a quick edit on this post and he has a problem with me stating that he wore fish food on his socks and underwear.
He wants it to state clearly here that he did NOT see any fish food in his drawer. 😂
