Today I’m linking at Four Plus an Angel for the My Kids Are the Messiest meme.
Three kids means there’s a lot of messes around here. There was the chocolate pudding incident, one of my first posts and one of the reasons I started blogging. Unfortunately, there were no pictures of that one. I was too busy yelling to take pictures. Fortunately, the girls have graced me with many messes and I’ve managed to get pictures of some of them. They’re all equally guilty, so I’m going to rat them all out here.
First up we have Samantha and Ella and the paint. This happened when Penny was a little baby and nursing regularly. I got the girls ready to paint and the baby wanted to eat.
I left the room. I know, big mistake, but in my defense it only took 3-5 minutes to feed Penny. At least I learned washable paint does not wash out of clothes and had them paint only in their undies. This is what happened in 3-5 minutes.
I think you can see the kitchen table and my no longer white kitchen curtains in that one.
Most of the messes in this house can be attributed to those two hooligans taking advantage of time I need to change Penny’s diaper or feed her or for some reason leave them unsupervised for more than thirty seconds.
Penny is starting to get into the act now. In fact, she so graciously provided me with a mess just in time for this post. I don’t know what I was doing (fine, I was on Twitter), and I heard noise coming from my bathroom. I walked in to see my almost new 1 lb bag of cosmetic clay opened on the floor. It’s a really good quality, fine cosmetic clay.
I looked in the hallway outside the bathroom and saw this:
Which led to this:
Of course, this has solidified my view that Penny is my evil genius child. Do you know what happens when you add water to dry cosmetic clay? Yeah, a bigger mess.
So now you know how I spend most of my day, running around cleaning up messes.
