When we moved last, my boys were 5 and 3. Needless to say, my house was always a trainwreck and keeping it clean for showings was a nightmare.
I had one realtor show up, no appointment, and tell me she had interested buyers sitting there IN THE DRIVEWAY and could they look at the house right now?
I told her no and to come back in an hour. I called her agency and raised holy hell and for agents to never "pop by" again or I'd yank my listing.
Moving is so stressful, I really hate it.
Yuck. Do you need a martini yet?

I feel bad for laughing so hard... but I'm laughing anyway!

ahhh... that looks far too familiar. I'm so thankful that when we sold our last house it sold in ONE day, so we didn't have to keep it clean all the time with a toddler and 2 cats. (the CA housing market rocked. The house we bought here in Lousiana had been on the market for 7 months, and it's a WAY better house!)

Thank God for vacuum cleaners! Or you could always play the "Flu virus" card...

Sophie's Mom said...

I think I woulkd have left it there, and made sure to place him there as the doorbell rings... and then pretend to find the mess just as you are showing the house! ;)

Too funny!

Beautiful. Just perfect. You have the picture to remind him what he put you through for years to come.
Or to remind him to be patient with his own. :)
Or to be glad he made it through toddler-hood?
And of course - great Moms always reach for the camera instead of something to paddle them with!!

I lived through this very thing--we just moved in April. And any day we said, forget it, no one is calling today, we can relax--that was the day someone called.

The title of this cracked me up.

Wait. Did I miss something? I thought the house sold? Where are you now? Hotel? Car? Confused...

The good news, at least at my house, is that Henry, who would not TOUCH them if they were on his tray, would eat every stinkin one off the floor, given enough time.

Want me to ship him out to you?
