This is why I never get crap done

So, I was attempting to get dinner done, which I suck at, but this night was going better than usual! I had made a lasagna earlier and just needed to throw it in the oven and take it out when it was done. I was trying to get the table cleared off and plates and forks set.

Gus, 7 years old, was working on his homework, and by that I mean doodling pictures of minions falling off a cliff while he was supposed to be doing his homework.

Bun Bun, 3 years old, decided that he was far too starved to wait for dinner. He pushed the stool over to the counter and found a bag of popcorn. Then he plopped down on the floor next to the table and Lala, 1 year old, toddled over and they both started shoveling popcorn into their little pie holes, er, popcorn holes.

I really didn't think much of this, I was too busy hounding Gus to finish his homework. Then I look over and see this.

Son of a bitch.

Okay, whatever, that popcorn was getting stale anyway, let's clean it up and move on. The lasagna is done now, hubby should be home soon, I got this!

And Gus and Lala even offer to help!

Although, they are 1 and 3. So, really not much help.

Eh, eventually they moved on and I got it swept up. As I was brushing the last of the popcorn mess into the dustpan, I look over and see this.

Oh, C'mon!

Lala pulled all the wipes out of the container and Bun Bun helped her throw them all over the living room. All while, Gus, still not done with his damn homework, laughs hysterically!

Fuck it! Dinner is done guys! The homework could get done later, the wipes mess could wait, I didn't care!

And this, children, is why I never get crap done!
