Saran Wrap Surprise

My kids decided to have a little fun today, at my expense.

"Mama, come here," my daughter said.

"I'm busy,"  I said.  "Can it wait?"

"No, you have to come right now," she answered.

I sighed and trudged upstairs where my kids were waiting for me.  They could barely contain their giggles.  I knew this was going to be good.

"Here, Mama.  Put on this mask so you can't see." 

I took the velvet eye mask.  "Seriously?  Can't I just close my eyes?"

"No.  You have to wear the mask."

I shook my head.  "Fine.  Let's just get this done quickly, because I have a ton of stuff to do."

I put on the mask and let my daughter lead me into my bedroom.  Then she directed me to where the master bathroom should be.  Except I ran into something - something plasticy and clingy.  "What?" I said, ripping off the mask.

I couldn't believe what I saw.  My kids had rigged my bathroom entry way with Saran Wrap.  It stretched across the entire door, and was held secure with Scotch tape.

Argh!  Do you think they were  bored, or something?

  4. At least they led you into it instead of you happening on it in the middle of the night when you needed to get in the bathroom. Ah, well. Give those kids books to read. I recommend "The Sword of Senack" by E.C. Stilson, our own beloved Elisa and the middle child I never had.

    Love,

    1. LOL! I would've been very upset if I had run into that in the middle of the night. Thanks for the book recommendation. I've never read it, but I'll definitely check it out.
