Things For Which I Choose Not to be Responsible

    Barbie shoes

    People shoes--left under the trampoline during a rainstorm

    Library books

    DVDs/CDs/Computer disks which get scratched within 15 seconds of unwrapping

    Money left by the tooth fairy

    Dollar store purchases which prove defective the minute they are removed from dollar store premises

    Anything that comes home in a party "goody bag"

    The microscopic light saber that came with the Lego Darth Vader
    Items that need batteries or recharging

    Loose change and half-eaten lollipops

    Puzzle pieces
    Crayola marker caps
    Did I forget anything?

Lindsey said...

HILLARY said...

everything Polly Pocket.

Ilene said...

Husband's scriptures.

Yeah, he SHOULD know where they are at all times.

Christie said...

Dice and other board game pieces, homework, lost socks, and DITTO the Polly Pockets.

Also add husband's home teaching list.

Lauralee said...

happy meal toys
great list!

TravelinOma said...

Lost homework. (I did not take responsibility for D's either.)

Kenny and Linsey said...

where the remote is, important mail that I don't open, husband's glasses/sunglasses - why can I always find mine? I keep mine on my face so they are NEVER missing!

Ashlee said...

Legos...Pokemon cards....

And I fully agree about the marker lids and happy meal toys!

Annemarie said...

So with your mom on the lost homework. And loose change, baseball gloves & hats, lunch (dinner & breakfast too) left on the table for more than 10 min.

Rochelleht said...

Cold lunches. My kids want 'em, they make 'em. That includes preschool girl. And since that is her only option, she makes one twice a week.

Amy L said...

The fact that you don't have any clean socks. (put clothes in the laundry room if you want them clean, not in your room, on the floor, etc.)

dinners that you don't like.

I am so with you on the scratched DVD's. I mean seriously, I've bought Incredibles like 5 times...

andrea said...

way to take a stand!! i refuse to take responsibility for the laundry, housecleaning, or meal prep either.

wait a minute...

Bridget said...

candy wrappers behind the sofa. proof that some sneaky boy thought he could get away with something.

Allison Weenig said...

I'm only in charge of change if it ends up in the laundry...then it's mine to keep!

lusciouschaos said...

Thanks for the laugh. Add to that costumes needed as part of a school project. Worn once.

Jessica said...

(so awesome)

I'm going with their reading logs and P.E. logs.

Third kid was when I stopped sorting toys and counting game pieces. Now they lose important stuff wallets, keys and I've lost my mind. We got the middle kid lasik because we couldn't permanently attach his glasses. I wish I could put a computer chip in him and his stuff!

Tristan said...

Socks, why is it you only loose just one and then have no matching pairs??

Lauren said...

You covered it all brilliantly. Today is the first day of my kids' summer break. Pray for me.

Cathy said...

Hello, you don't know me, but I have been enjoying your blog for quite sometime! I found it through a friend of mine, Cynthia Hale. I live in Mesa, Arizona and have recently started a blog myself- http://cathy-myownopinion.blogspot.com/,feel free if your interested. I am a convert to the church, I joined when I was 18 and a sopohmore at the University of Arizona. A few years later I served a mission in Milano, Italy and after that met and married my husband in Phoenix Az. We have one son who just returned from his mission in Mexico City East. I very much agree with this chose as I have been there! But I love your style!

Laurie said...

Ditto! I'd also say socks. Where oh where can they possibly go? My 12 yr old either has a ton, or none.

Jenibelle said...

Teenagers bathrooms or bedrooms, gas in a car that I don't drive, homework, messages on the answering machine, forgetting anything on a teenagers social calendar, the garage, taking the garbage out....

Hazen5 said...

Game boys and Game Boy Chargers! If I had a dollar for every time I have been asked that question...you know the rest!

Emy5 said...

I inwardly groan when the kids are given presents with a thousand little pieces, and I don't touch the girls bathroom. That one's up to them.

Judi said...

I hear ya sister on the Lego Star Wars Light Saber--but what about the tiny figures that come in the star ships?!

Jill said...

Good for you!!

crystal said...

Ohhhhhh....those Lego Star Wars light sabers are the BANE of my existence!

Polly Pocket is my nemesis.

Christie said...

The other flip-flop

You don't know me either - just coming from lurkerville to throw in my biggest pet peeve.
