I was feeding Josiah when I heard a 2 yr. old scream come from the laundry room.
I went in there to see what was going on when Jesse promptly informed me that Nathan had spilled paint in the porch. (Still not sure why the 2 yr. old was screaming!) And like any mom the words 'spilled paint' got my ears perked up pretty quickly. I almost dreaded to go into the porch , but I did. And before me I saw indeed spilled paint. Nathan 'somehow' got the lid off the paint can and it dumped on the tile floor. Inwardly I mourned the fact that I had not put that paint can away yesterday when I saw it in the porch. But half of me thought it was an empty one and would do no harm. WRONG! I
cheerfully tried not to get upset as Nathan was quite beside his quiet self already and appalled that he would 'somehow' do such a thing :) He had already desparately tried to clean it up on his own, thus ALL the rags from the rag drawer were in the puddle of paint and he was already getting a pail of water ready to water it down and spread it around more wash it up. Thank you Lord that I got there when I did! But the paint is cleaned up, Nathan has apologized and I just hope we don't have any more spills today because, WE ARE OUT OF RAGS.
I thought I did pretty good, I kept my cool through this ordeal, this is going to be a good day. Well sometime in the midst of me cleaning up the paint, Mikaya must have gotten her clothes wet when washing her hands and decided to change, by herself! I guess she had a hard time finding her clothes because she proceeded to pull out all the sheets and diapers off the shelf in the baby room. I think she was looking for pants because she already had a shirt on. Then I looked up and saw the shirt she was wearing!
In the middle of ALL this the ferrier showed up a couple of hours early. That was not a problem. I was glad we could get that over with and get on with our day. I went out to pay him and came into an entrance that looked like this. Obviously someone was looking for something and didn't find it
and then cleaned it all up like any well trained Pauls child would do and decided we should clean it up and then disappeared :)
