Oatmeal and teens

Teen accidentally drops a bowl of hot oatmeal. Bummer... Teen then thinks it is a good idea to dump the rest onto the kitchen floor and then clean it up with a mop... without even removing pieces of bowl or the oatmeal. Teen throws oatmeal covered rug into carpeted dining room. Teen puts oatmeal covered CSA box into living room. Teen then proceeds to mop the floor with oatmeal covered mop... before cleaning off the cabinets that are covered in oatmeal, or the counter... that is STILL covered in oatmeal. Now there is oatmeal in three different rooms... it isn't even 9am.

I am going to get Starbucks.

after the pre tween in my house put back the milk empty (he didn't want to go to the outside fridge to replace) and I had not milk for my coffee, I am sympathetic and scared......this sounds like something that will definately happen in my future....

oh my! How long did that take to clean up?

That sounds about right. I know this is no comfort really, but at least your teen attempted something that they believed was cleaning. Mine would have left it for me to clean up and gone off to pout without telling me there was a mess.
