kids and mothers

To the girls:
Time: 3:45pm
"Girls before your piano teacher comes over, you have to take everything from the playroom stairs up to your room."
*Time to eat snack * watch TV * Talk to each other *Waste time *
"She is going to be here in 30 minutes. You have to change and clean up - your room is a mess too."
*Time to play with American girls * Read library books * Put on makeup(?) * WASTE TIME! *
Time: 4:20pm
"Girls, where ARE you?" (Keely, is, you know, putting her hair up. Abby is, well, petting her animals.) Important stuff to them. Not so much to me.
Neither has gotten changed. Neither has picked up ONE item from the playroom.
And I'm the bad guy for yelling.
HELLO!! Earth to Abby and Keely! Am I talking to myself?
