Morning from hell...whoops, I said it again!

This is what I get for doing the dishes this morning. I was doing the dishes, and called for Kristin. She came down the stairs...PURPLE! I about died! I went up the stairs and saw her handprints and footprints all over! I followed them, and they went into my work closet. We sell acrylic paints. We have purple and chocolate right now. They WERE up high. I'm still trying to figure out how she got them. And, they were completely sealed! She had to unscrew the top, and puncture a whole in the seal. Not to mention, she got 2 bottles open! After I tried to clean up as much as I could, I ran to the grocery store to rent a rug doctor. They just happened to be on sale for $14.99 this week! So, after renting the upholstery connections (which didn't work), it cost me $18.87 . So, my pregnant body lugged this stupid machine up 37 stairs and I spent 2 hours cleaning this up. Did I tell you it's only 10:15a.m.? I still can't get the paint off the wall. Any ideas? I was thinking Vodka. I know toll painters use it to remove the last coat of acrylic paint. But, I don't know who is going to sell a pregnant woman, with 3 kids in tow, a bottle of vodka...the sad part is, I'm sure nobody would have any problems doing it! So, if you know of any ideas that don't involve hard liquor, please let me know! Erin, looks like I'll revise the store...no more purple paint! So, if this is a preview of what is to come while Troy's out of town for the next 2 weeks...I'm in for it! Did I mention, yesterday she got ahold of the green sharpie and had colored all over her legs and a different wall What am I to do with her? I don' t remember the boys ever doing things like this. They weren't into art supplies...

Our purple OOMPA LOOMPA. I was so mad at her! I made her stay in the shower until I had tried to clean up as much as I could.














Before the Rug Doctor...and after the Rug Doctor...

I just want to cry for you Jen. You poor thing! You've got a little scrapper on your hands. I have no stain removing tips, so good luck with that. You poor, poor thing. You deserve the mother of the year award.

Woo Hoo! It's the mascara incident all over again! I love seeing other peoples kids doing bad stuff like mine-it makes me feel like not such a bad parent! Good luck getting it out. I still have carpet covered in mascara I can't get out. Nail polish does remove sharpie though--I found that one out when Arwen was Kristin's age!!
Poor Jen!
