I had have no words for Jacob's bedroom. It is that perplexing, that awful, that much of a mess. I've asked, begged and pleaded for him to clean it up, even just a little. You can see how far I got...
But also knowing my son as I do, I knew that money alone was not going to do the trick. I knew if I was to keep him with me through the cleaning/dejunking process I would need more ammo than money. I know the way to Jacob's heart....Slim Jims and Circus Peanuts! So like a chimp on display in zoo, I had to feed him to get him to perform.
This is a very small sampling of a few of the treasures that were found under Jacob's bed....
And a few my personal favorites
A school excuse from FEBRUARY.....Ummm, maybe that explains the truancy notice he got.
And his Faith in God for Boys booklet with the word boys scratched out and replaced with the word Men.
Now that Jacob has officailly gone from boy to man let's hope he has turned over a new leaf and will never have to have his mother bribe him to clean his room again. Maybe if I periodically get him Slim Jim's and Circus Peanuts he'll keep it clean on his own. Well, a mother can dream, can't she?
Stay tuned.... Tim has done a little cleaning out of his own! :)
