Have you ever sat and wondered what else lives in your house? I mean apart from the Hubby, the kids and the pet worm. Well I have noticed some strange goings on in the mission house for some time now, I’m not sure what but it was something. So I decided to go and investigate these strange things.
I discovered some new species and needed to warn other mums of their existence:
THE WASHING GOBLIN:
He comes to your house and fills up empty washing baskets. Just so we are never without washing. He lies in wait and when you go to bed he gleefully fills to his heart’s content and when he is done he moves on to his next victim.
THE SOCK MONSTER:
He comes and steels a sock from every pair, so when you are rushing around the next day trying to get the kids up and dressed you really CAN’T find that other sock. He takes them back to sock land where everything is made from odd socks.
THE TOY GOBLIN:
He is a nasty little thing he comes and tips all of the children’s toys and leaves them all over the floor, and then watches as the children get all of the blame. He loves it when you’re half asleep and checking on the little ones late at night, he lays blocks of Lego in the middle of the floor for you to stand on.
THE CLOTHES MONSTER:
Now he is related to the WASHING GOBLIN, but he takes great pride in throwing clothes all over the floor. He doesn’t care if it’s the nicely ironed pile you carefully placed on the children’s beds, or underwear from the draws. Anything he can find he will scatter it all over the bedroom floor, the bathroom floor, the landing and any other room he sees fit.
THEN LASTLY THERE IS THE BAG MONSTER:
He only comes out when the children return home from school. He leaves bags all over the living room floor for you to trip over and bang into. Even when you get the children to put them away they seem to creep back down the stairs and back into the living room until you fall over them again.
So now I have made you all aware of these little monsters, you can now keep an eye out for them. They will trash your home and blame it all on your children…….OR DO THEY?
