It's Story Time: Good Night Mess

In the small blue house

There was a full garbage can.

And a red ketchup stain on the carpet.

And a picture of...

What our house looked like when we first moved in.

And there were three little bales, of useless junk mail.

And two nasty socks, and some collected rocks.

And a shoe and some goo and a bowl of something fuzzy that grew.

And a small little toddler who was screaming at the top of her lungs, I'M NOT TIRED!

Goodnight house.

Goodnight garbage.

Goodnight fruit flies swarming over the garbage.

Goodnight bales of mail and dirty dishes.

Goodnight socks and yucks and ishes.

Goodnight fridge that's turning scary.

Goodnight bowl of something hairy.

Goodnight laundry.

Goodnight dust.

Goodnight to the toddler screaming "LET'S WATCH BLUE'S CLUES!"

Goodnight Moon Dough squished in the rug.

Goodnight Heather.

I need a hug.


  1. HA! I can totally relate. Goodnight bottles in the sink I didn't feel like washing but will smell foul tomorrow.

  2. Just popped over fro TMB, loved that. And I was reading it all sing-song like, just like I do to my kids.

    If you give a mouse a cookie isn't going to be pretty in my neck of the woods. Nice read.

  3. Thanks, all! I actually dedicate this post to my unusually clean house. I took a couple days off and de-cluttered and super-cleaned. Now if only I could keep it this way...
