A fun maze for the kids

My parents have been staying with us for March break (March break is 2 weeks long in our neck of the world). The kids love having the undivided attention of their grandparents for two whole weeks! They play games together, they get stories read to them, they do crafts and colouring, they get McDonald’s food, they get gum, they get ice cream, they get presents, what’s not to love!

We have a “bedroom corner” in our basement (the rest of the basement is for toys and playing), so the basement becomes my parents territory. While they are visiting I rarely go down there. I had to do some laundry the other night (my son waltzed downstairs in his underwear and socks and announced to us all that he had no clean pajamas) and realized with a bit of shock that it is a total disaster zone, except for the bedroom corner. I did a blitz clean up attack and went back upstairs.

I looked at the kids at told them that when grandma and grandpa leave, they were going to have some serious cleaning up to do because the basement was dangerous.

Underwear boy gave me a cheeky grin and said, “A danger zone for grown-ups, a fun maze for the kids!”

About dirtyrottenparenting

I'm a parent of two lovely (most of the time) children. I work full time out of the home and I don't cook well, bake, sew, or do crafty things. I keep my high heels and jewelry at my office because there's no point in having them at home. I love Mondays because I can return to the world of adults, go to the bathroom alone and have nearly uninterrupted conversations with others.
