So the man-child (SS18) and tweener (SS14) are home alone today. They will have a full day of video games and Netflix, eating whatever they want.
I had to laugh last night as DH and I prepared for them being home alone today - we hid most of the junk food - Christmas cookies, snack size chips, pop-tarts, chocolate kisses etc. In previous years these two would eat all the junk food up leaving none for lunches. Also hid most of the paper plates as they will use a bag of 100 up in 2 days - taking a new plate every time they eat something.
We aren't total ogres though we did leave a bowl of Christmas cookies for them. The sad thing is it's not even SS14 that does this, it's SS18 who will gorge himself on junk food, especially the cookies. SS18 ate all the Andies candies cookies Christmas day. DH was so mad he made another batch while SS18 was at work on Saturday and hid them.
Last night DH was reminding them of the rules:
-Clean up after yourself.
-SS18 is not allowed to make SS14 do all the clean-up and dishes.
-No fighting over the PS.
-Don't be a dick to your brother.
So stupid to have to do this at their ages.
