Must be a right of passage for being a parent that no one tells you about! confused
Because I'm a record every frigging day and I'm sick of my own voice!

Monday mornings are the worst days.
DH and I to work. DC to school. Bin Day.

Have you got your hanky/homework.PE kit/water/open your curtains/ where's your waterproof/ money/ phone.........gawd it never ends.

DS sometimes 'forgets' his hanky so I give him a tissue which he shreds to confetti in his pocket (why?)

So I'm fecking fed up of the shouting, I have New Rules.

If you leave a tissue shredded up you remove it. (I do check the pockets BTW in case there's money ) . If it gets on the black clothes you will get all the fluff off all the clothes with a lint roller.

If you leave any dirty clothes that I need to pick up, you will eat a portion of veg the size of my fist for every item.

If you leave your curtains open, no X-Box for 24 hours.

We live on the upper floors of a converted house, with a single, solitary, child free person living downstairs.

I spend my entire day saying 'don't run, do not run in the house, don't jump, SILENT walking!'

My children are going to spend their adult lives telling people what a nag I was.

Flippin' 'ek fiverabbits
You are a saint.
I'd have chucked their stuff in a skip years ago.
No wonder they haven't moved out if you everything for them.

OP - my 16 YO is the same
I didn't move out until I was 26.

Keep that broken record going.

Good God I know what you mean. I thought it would get easier as they got older but they just make more sodding mess.

shock fiverabbits obviously it's easy for a stranger to say but how the hell have you not booted them out before now? If they're working they could get a flat share together and hoard away to their hearts content.

mine are 17 and 21, the daily recording says........

put the lights off,
don't leave the charger plugged in

clean the loo if you make it messy
