Murphy's Law

This has always made me laugh ...and heaven knows you need to laugh when it's all going wrong!

Why is it that EVERY time I mop the floor something sticky is immediately spilled or dribbled all over it?! Especially on a day when you're trying to get a lot done? I'm about to just throw in the towel and let the dog lick it clean (eew)!

I just finished mopping!

The culprit!

Murphy's toddlers laws (via Murphy's Laws Site)

  • When you need to carry a child they will want to walk.
  • When you want them to walk they will want to be carried.
  • When you bring the stroller they will want to walk.
  • When you forget the stroller they will want to ride.
  • The more potential a food has for stains the greater the coverage area when it is hurled by a child.
    Corollary: The more potential a food has for stains the more expensive the item of clothing/fabric/furniture it strikes. 
  • A child's favorite one day is never a favorite the next day (especially food).
  • The intensity of the tantrum is directly proportional to the amount of people around to witness.
  • If it's mine it's mine,
    if it's yours it's mine,
    if I like it is mine,
    if I can take it from you it is mine,
    if I am playing with something ALL of the pieces are mine,
    if I think it is mine it is,
    if I saw it first it's mine,
    if I had it then put it down it is still mine,
    if you had it then you put it down it is now mine,
    if it looks like the one I have at home it is mine,
    if it is broken it is yours.
  • If I make a mess you must clean it up
