Some things I want: - Dirty clothes that walk themselves from the floor to the washing machine, leap into the dryer and magically fold and/or hang themselves into closets - A house elf that comes in the dead of the night and does dishes, takes out trash, cleans litter boxes, dusts, vacuums, mops, scrubs toilets and bathtubs, cleans windows etc - A responsable adult (other than myself!) that can pay all bills, create all budgets (meaning said adult MUST have magical powers of creative thinking), do all household shopping including packing up and dragging in and putting away all overpriced groceries Barring all of the magical wishes above, a small miracle could be a good alternative: Children who actually DO CHORES and pick up after themselves!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Melissa PS. difficult child left his cave (bedroom, can we call it that?!?!) the other day to "help out" his friend who has just taken his own apartment. How did he "help out"? Washed walls, picked up trash from last tenant, cleaned dried vomit off a stove (last tenant) and ground in ferret poop off carpets (last tenant YUCK), washed windows etc. I took a near full trash bag (large one) of trash from his room. Nearly a cupboard full of dirty dishes. *GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR* Worse, he had the NERVE to call me on the phone and ask for me to send a MOP to his friends new apartment because they didn't have one and "Mom, you'd feel so bad, this house was left a total STY". So of course I paid a delivery service to bring the mop there (never did get it back either so I'll have to buy a new one) because I felt for the kid in his first place. But hello!?!?! This apartment is/was a STY??? If the apartment is a STY, what is difficult child's bedroom/cave? I'd call it a hazardous waste drop off depot!!!
