Shut the Door!!!

If I could have a penny for the times I have said "Shut the door" in my days of being a mom....I would have lots of pennies :)

One particular child that has really been giving me grief in this area is Mikaya. It seems every time she would follow her brothers and/or sister outside and would be the last one, she would leave the door wide open!!!! Again and again this happened....and no matter how many times she would have to come back and close the door, it didn't seem to sink in!

And then yesterday it all became clear to me when she once again didn't close the door and I called after her, "Mikaya, why do you leave the door open?" to which she sweetly replied, "Cause I didn't open it!" Now I get it.  It makes perfect sense....NOT!!!!! Nice try Mikaya :)

Or how about, turn off the lights, shut the fridge, close the van door, etc. etc. etc. Or, when they do finally learn to shut the door it seems to always be with a slam to ensure it closed all the way!! That's my problem right now. Kids, can't live with em, and ya can't live without em!!
