Some days are just plain hard.
With that being said, I had to use the toilet plunger to close a window. I never thought I would do that in my parenting career.
My bedroom windows are broken. They can open, but don’t shut all the way. Yes, I know we should replace them but we’ve spent 10k on teeth this year, so no windows.
My three youngest unnamed children were playing in my room which they know is a big no no. One of them thought it would be a good idea to open the window and holler at Adie. And guess what? They then couldn’t close the window.
I was not happy.
I had no idea what do until the lightbulb went off…we have two new plungers that Carl needed to remove a computer screen. I stuck the plunger to the window and walla …it worked. Jack sighed a sigh of relief because this was a second story window.
Adie later reminded me how silly I must have looked to people passing by. She did a goofy little impression of me and had us laughing.
