Today's Adventure Update: Dec 2010

December 1, 2010 The door to my office was left unlocked, and my little ones grabbed a few mascaras out of my inventory. They decided mascara would be a great way to decorate the basement stairs. Mascara all over the carpet and walls. I am the master of stain removal. It's a gift from my very creative children. LOL.

My favorite lipstick went missing, and I went searching for it. I found beautiful wall murals all over my kids' room drawn with...YOU GUESSED IT! My favorite lipstick.

My 5-yr-old left her salt water taffy in the car, and it froze. So she decided to leave it (unwrapped) on her heat vent overnight so "It would get soft." Brilliant. Except it hardened and dried out and is stuck in the carpet...

I couldn't figure out how all of my homemade rolls disappeared so quickly. I just thought my kids inhaled them all...but it turns out we have a 3-yr-old who thinks he's a squirrel. I moved the couch cushions and found toys, crayons, and stale rolls.

Yes, another wonderful December adventure...Sharpie all over my grandmother's antique Queen Anne chair. After many hours of scrubbing, I saved the chair.

Our 10-year-old came home today sobbing. I could hear him wailing as he approached the door, so I ran outside, thinking he had been beat up. He looked up at me through tear-filled eyes, thrust his hand at me, filled with the broken pieces of his yo-yo. Poor guy. He was messing around after school, and he threw his backpack (which contained his yo-yo), and it shattered. The problem is that it was a light up one, so there are batteries and wires and stuff that aren't fixable. He discovered that it still works as a yo-yo and he's okay now. it was a very emotional evening.
