Can a girl put on some makeup?

The answer is NO! Not if you're a mom and you have 2 little kiddos raring for destruction on a Friday morning.

I went upstairs for THREE minutes (no exaggeration) to finish putting on my makeup this morning and this is what I found when I came back down.

Mind you, there was silence... so I should have known...
What you can't see here is actually good. There is some spit up that Harris rolled around in while playing with choking hazards- also known as Owen's toys that he apparently dumped on the floor.

And this bench is usually up against the windows:And, again, the huge puddle of water can't be seen, but you can probably see the wetness of the rug beside the chair. And the overturned dog bowl should give that away. We have a gate to the breakfast room that I thought was up, but apparently it was not!

Being the time saver that I am, I picked up Harris from this water puddle (grabbed my camera and took pictures), wiped up the majority of the dog water, then used that wet towel to wipe up the spit up on the floor near the toys with my foot and was out the door. Did I change my youngest child? Uh, no. I figured the wetness would clean off the spit up... and he was going to mother's morning out anyway, so he was about to get dirty... blah, blah... you know the rest of the rationalization.

Happy Friday!

Haha! It's so good to see these boys are taking after their daddy. Total destruction in 10 seconds flat!

That morning is a prime example of what having more than one child does to one's priorities. Sounds like you made the best of it!

Lindsey said...

i am laughing so hard right now. i feel your pain too. some days you just have to roll with it... hoping your weekend is much less traumatic?!

Matt, Carrie and Lucy Allen said...

oh, my morning, believe it or not, was just a little more traumatic. now, mind you, i only have one child, but we had a major catastrophy in our laundry room. just posted about it~i feel your pain.

That is SO funny!!! I can totally relate. Isn't it amazing how you just know they're up to something when it's really quiet? AND how in the world are they able to do so much damage so quickly? Kids are amazing, that's for sure!
