What I found: a cape and a (play) Air Force uniform thrown on the bottom of the storage shed.

What I asked: Please go pick up the stuff on the storage shed floor(that we just cleaned).

What he did: Picked it up and placed it on the hose reel OUTSIDE of the shed three steps away.

What this means: It is partially my fault for not being specific enough in my directive to include "Put them away WHERE they go". It is why when I ask them to do something, the request comes with 5 minutes of specifics. "We KNOW Mom" is always their impatient response. Well,if they KNOW, why don't they DO it?

What I think: That all of the "wailing and lamenting" done in Biblical times was done by frustrated mothers!
