Because today my daughter climbed on top of the fridge while I was not looking and found the finger paints, then hid them in her room until nap time. Today a single room in my house was redecorated without my knowledge.
Today I screamed.
When I opened the door, after the speechlessness left me I asked my sweet innocent child what the crap she was thinking! She replied very sweetly and very innocently "I wanted to paint my wall!"
It took me over an hour to clean the carpet and the paint on the wall won't come off. That'll be an adventure for tomorrow. I hear magic erasers work. Have to try one of those.
What kinds of messes have your kids made? come on tell me. it'll make me feel better.
