Putting My Foot Down

What do you think is odd about this photo?



Or this one?



Time's up.

I'm sure that by now you have realized that no matter how many cubbies or baskets I give them to put their shoes in, they never fail to leave them right beside the footwear receptacle. If it wasn't so funny, it would be not funny, or something like that.

Look to the finish!

LOL I see moms and dads shoes too I think eh? The only 2 in this house that don't put their shoes in the basket is my eldest son, and my husband - drives me nuts! We're always late for church because my 8yo can't find his shoes. Even the 2yo puts them in! ARGHHHHHH lol

Oh, my gosh that looks like my house. I'm Bridget, by the way, I linked to your blog through Melissa.(we went to school together) We have a shoe rack behind the front door and you still can't open the door all the way because of the shoes on the floor behind the door. Good luck it's not working for me yet, I say yet. I always have hope.

I know! What is THAT?? Here it's not only the shoes, the clothes are always layed very nicely right NEXT to the hamper!

Mercy!

I'm looking.

Hee! Hee! That looks like our house. I've trained the boys to put away shoes, but I'm forever finding my dh's around the house! I finally got a large, plastic "under the bed" type of basket for him to throw his shoes into. That's helped..... a bit. :)

Are you a shoeless house, too? I have shoe cubbies also. :-) We really were separated at birth. By the way, I'm still going to call you, we have just been crazy busy!

Hhmm? Something does look odd here. I see it now! Those shoes look awfully straight and orderly even while not in the proper receptacle. I suspect they may have been planted there by the shoe queen herself because when I dump my shoes; I don't care where they land. I love you honey.

ROFLOL! I tripped over a pair of Zorak's boots in the KITCHEN the other day. He said, "Sorry, man, this is the only room with lights." I told him I don't care where he takes them off but that they don't have to stay there when he's done! The boys and I have more bruises and scrapes from tripping over his shoes... *sigh*

At least the boys do put theirs where they belong. For that, I am thankful. For that, I'm also not in traction right now.

I am having a problem with my littlest one putting her clothes in the laundry basket. Either she puts the clothes right next to the basket or in some obscure place in her room--like the oven of her play kitchen. I just don't get it because it is actually easier to put the clothes where they belong!!?!!

LOL! This is funny- and of course, my house looks exactly the same.
I think my family suffers from shoe blindness because I am the only one who sees them laying around. This then means that I am also the only one who picks them up. Even when I ask them to come and put their shoes away, they come over and kick them to the wall where no one can trip over them. But will they actually pick them up and put them away? Ha! It will never happen... ;)

Looks just like my front door. We always take our shoes off but no one ever puts them away nicely. At least everyone takes them off. The shoes everywhere is a good hint to my guests to get their shoes off too.
