Lucy got new mittens last year.
Bright pink, fuzzy, just her size.
I don't begrudge her the mittens--
Except for the pink fuzz trail
found all over our carpeted staircase.
Vacuuming stairs? Not my pay grade.

Join the brevity at making things up!

Oh, the vacuuming. How it sucks
The life out of me. Daily.

that and toilets. they suck too.

Heather said...

Wait, daily? How do you manage?

Diana said...

Vacuuming? What's that?

Maybe if I vacuumed more, my little vacuums wouldn't be constantly pointing out stuff they find on the floor. Or maybe with just a bit more training, I'd really get away with it.

Melissa said...

Hahaha, sucks. Jen cracked me up.

I would have disappeared the mittens.
You are clearly the better person. ;P

I can just see the pink fuzz! Very visual and something all mother's can relate to. Great!

Heather said...

Thanks for the kudos :) Melissa, disappearing them seems like a good idea. Except for the fact that they are pretty adorable. I mean, what girl wouldn't want pink mittens?

Heather said...

Hot pink, I might add.
