Evil Joy here with a post on silliness, fun, and Evil Joy Speaking Loudly.
Yesterday was a good day. We got to the Y while Eldest Spawn was at Raider Elite. Got home. Cleaned up the house.
The Spawn didn’t run fast enough or hide quickly enough to evade what they term Evil Whole House Pick Up. I call it – Mom Is Sick Of Doing This All Herself and You Made The Messes (or Atleast Some Of Them (as I’m sure to be argued with “I didn’t do that!”)) SO GET OUT HERE AND HELP ME!
At the completion of Evil Whole House Pick Up, Spawn went outside to play. Mid afternoon I called them in for a break from the heat and to rest up for ball.
Eldest Spawn – he and the couch are friends. He and his iPod are friends. They were all friendly with each other, no problem.
Female Spawn….well…they were on Evil Silly Mode yesterday. Now, I love Silly Mode. It only becomes Evil Silly Mode when they destroy and then EVIL FIB about cleaning up said Evil Silly Mode Messes. Then Evil Joy must speak, and Evil Joy will speak loudly if necessary.
But their giggles, uncontrollable from the sounds of it…..Love.That.
Here’s what they were up to :
And yes, the bulk of their Spawn ‘bodies’ is made up of some of the blankets we own. Only some. (Which means we will be donating several as the cold season approaches.) Additional ‘body bulking’ items included, but were not limited to :
1. Eldest Female Spawn’s robe
2. Middle Female Spawn’s robe
3. Littlest Female Spawn’s robe
6. You get the idea….
Now keep in mind the temps hit near 90 degrees and the humidity was high for us Wisconsin Weenies. Yet my Female Spawn layer themselves in sweat producing layers and have the best time of their lives…….until……
We got home from ball in shifts. Eldest Spawn had a game at one location (with me and two youngest Spawn) and Eldest Female Spawn had a game across town. Now, before we left for ball, I specifically asked, “Did you put the things you were playing with away properly?” “Yes Mom, of course,” is the answer I received.
BUUUUUUZZZZZZZZZ. Wrong Answer!
Upstairs was trashed. I was Evil Joy and I was Loud Evil Joy. Female Spawn knew they were in trouble because there was no whining – just working. After 20 minutes, order was restored. Now I’m not a clean house nazi – just ask anyone who knows me – my house is usually messy – with 4 Spawn, a dog, and life – I’m real, we live in our house, messes are made. But after spending 2 + hours tidying – not actual dirt digging out cleaning – just tidying – I was Evil Annoyed at the mess.
Evil Joy did back off and Mom reappeared. Stories were read, songs sung, kisses and hugs shared.
Spawn – listen here. I love that you play and have fun. It makes my heart sing.
I don’t love when you lie. It’s wrong. Don’t. Lie. To. Me. You will be caught, found out, busted, whatever – it’s best you learn this now when the consequences are small but strong because as you get older ….. I’ll be more Evil if lying occurs. Just sayin’
EJ out – to do some laundry. Evil Laundry found while tidying……..
