Hangers 101

It’s gotten colder up here in the ‘great white north’. As a matter of fact we even had a sprinkling of snow yesterday.

Being the kind TiredMama that I am, I made sure all the kids went to school properly equipped with warm footwear, mittens, hats, and a suitable coat.

All this toasty warm, and may I add fairly expensive gear is now lying in the bottom of my back hall closet. At least the stuff that’s not lying in the lost and found at school is in there. I must admit I haven’t done a complete inventory.

J0385506Which leads me to, Hangers.

Children of TiredMama! Okay, possibly children EVERYWHERE – listen up!

See that little picture over there? Don’t be scared, that’s a hanger.

Mittens go in your coat pockets, and then the sleeves of your coats need to go over the pointy ends of this hanger thing. You then need to take the hook and place it over the rod that is hanging in the closet that you’re currently throwing your stuff in. This should take about oh, all of ten seconds.

Boots and shoes can also be placed side by side in the bottom of the same closet. All your stuff should NOT be strewn all over the back hallway or thrown in the bottom of the closet. 

Hangers are our friends. Please start using them.

I appreciate your attention.

Next week we’re going to talk about the proper use of laundry hampers. Please be on time. TiredPapa? I need you here for next week’s lecture discussion. I think you’ve some how missed the hamper demonstration along the way too.

Gesh.

  1. I tell you, it’s not the first cold day of the year without the requisite leaving of hat/mitts at school. It’s as predictable as Christmas.

  2. Somehow my kids just can’t seem to get the ‘hang’ of hangers either. I’m contemplating putting up coat pegs by the door. Who am I kidding, they probably wouldn’t use those either… not when there is a perfectly good floor nearby.

  3. Oh my, too funny because it’s true!
    We had a teensy bit of snow at the beginning of the week too. But the weather has been awesome so far.
    My kids much prefer the floor beside the basket I placed under their hooks to catch falling mitts.

  4. Be careful what you wish for. The BoyChild discovered hangers and wants to hang EVERYTHING up; tee shirts, pants, shorts, underwear. You haven’t lived until you open your closet and find little Diego underwear hanging from those hangers that have clips that are designed to hold your skirts.

  6. On the rare occasion that it snows here in the south, in our coat closet I have a large basket on the shelf over the hanging rod. Then, whenever they take off their coat, they toss into the basket the mittens, scarves, hats, etc. As for the lost and found at school . . . we keep that place hopping!

  7. Ah yes, my children need to read Hangers 101. We even tried a row of coat hooks for the shorter ones. lol Still easier to just come in the house and plop everything on the floor.
    Keep warm!
