To My Future Daughters-in-Law: You're Welcome

So he may not have done a perfect job, but in Joey's accidental spilling of an entire box of Raisin Bran in the pantry, he tried multiple avenues of clean-up:

The kitchen towel proved somewhat ineffective
After successfully scattering every last piece of bran flakes and raisin to the four corners of the pantry with my kitchen towel, Joey then implemented an "eat and sweep" technique:

I have instilled a deep responsibility for any mess my boys create.  Therefore, they frequently attempt to rectify gross negligence in the areas of spilling, leaking, and messing before discovery is made.  Being as they are only 7, 5, and 3, I can usually spot the work of an amateur from a mile away.  Despite this, they persist.

Which is far more than I can say for certain other people:

Joe finished prepping the wall 4 days ago.  Perhaps he feels a shrine to his work is warranted.


  1. Mar, I can't help wonder if the "accidental spill" might have something to do with the fact that it was BRAN fiber cereal. He may have inherited the Walsh boy disdain for all healthy food products. I bet he does not drop brats & chicken wings! Just a thought... :)

    Keep posting...makes my morning! Just read, "Things My Husband Says" for the first time! Priceless.


  2. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...........He's thinking about it.

  3. MJ - You may be on to something. Joey spilled his fruit cup last week. And dropped his banana the week before. Hmmmm...

    Anonymous - Actually, Joe is not nearly as bad as some. The man has never left the toliet seat up in the 10 years we've been together.

  4. Anonynous-re: the praise on the toilet seat...must be the Walsh kidneys-I don't think he can make it inside quickly enough. He has been spotted by neighbors in the alley. Just kidding:) Way to go Joe!

  5. Anonymous - oh Lordy. Is that why the toliet seat is never up? I should have known.
