ANOTHER one of THOSE days. . .

It's just one of those days around here. Last night, I didn't feel like cleaning the kitchen up after dinner. There's my first mistake. I decided it could wait until morning. This morning while I am cleaning, I send the kids to their rooms to play, and for once they were playing nicely. In the middle of cleaning I notice it's quiet. . . a little too quiet. So run to see what kind of damage is being done. Isaac and Ainsley had found travel sized soaps and lotions, and proceeded to work together to decorate the guest bedroom. Shampoo, lotion, toothpaste everywhere.

First step was to give Ainsley a shower, she was covered in shampoo. Next step clean up the room.

While I am cleaning the bedroom I notice it is too quiet again. Lucky me. . . Isaac is in the bathroom, putting makeup on himself and the bathroom mirror.

Time to go clean another mess.

Oh dear. I hope this doesn't sound bad, but your kids make me laugh and not feel quite so bad about what my own kids put me through. Hope they settled down after that. Is it nap time yet?

Oh my gooness! I am telling you...you need to write a book of all these things! And you are telling me that I will survive with two? ahhh! I have so much to look forward too! :) Very nice makeup job by the way.

Hee hee!

Looks like a lot of fun was had! Be happy you have very creative kids. Well try, at least. I know how it feels. :)

It is too bad that when kids are quite it is never a good thing. At least for me that is how it is. Love the make up all over Issac. Jack is obessed with mine and is constantly trying to get his hands on it!!

It must be a Wilkins gene. I remember making my Mom mad doing things like that as a kid and lo and behold, my children are prone to gravitate to anything that is goopy in their hands and that they can spread.

Poor Brooke! You need to strap those kids down before you do ANYTHING! Hope today is better!

Omigosh, Brooke! I can't even imagine your kids causing so much havoc. You have to give them some credit though...those two are very smart and very resourceful! And creative. Wow.

Bethanne said...

Brooke - BUY the pillows! I can't wait to see them! :)

Will & Amy said...

Wow Brookie, you have the best kids! They can always find a way to make a mess! But hey, at least they are having fun while they do it, right? Gotta give em credit for something. And now I know who to ask about removing stains, etc when I have kids of my own. :)

Kim Skinner said...

McKenna said...
