Nail Polish, nail polish everywhere...and not a drop to drink...

This morning, as the spawns were watching Dora, yes again, I decided to slip upstairs to take a shower. As I approached the bottom of the stairs I was assaulted by the strong smell of nail polish!

Upon reaching the bottom step, I was vaguely aware than something was not right. There were drops of bright pink leading from the living room into the dining. My first reaction was that one of the kids had cut themselves and was lying prone in a corner of the dining room slowly bleeding to death. Alas, this was not so (I could have handled that misfortune). Instead my 2 darling daughters had painted their hands and feet a bright fuchsia and were at that moment attempting to cover the wall with what was left in the bottle.

After a short cry of an expletive I shall not repeat, I ripped away the bottle and prepared myself to view the damage. There was a trail of pink leading into the living room, where a larger smear of pink was strew across the floor. CSI would have had a field day mapping the "blood" splatter. Thinking to myself, "That's not too bad", I turned to find footprints and droplets on my new rug in the living room!

Needless to say, after 3 bottles of polish remover, the nail polish has been eradicated from the affected areas. Where is my bottle of wine?????

Holy Cutex, Batman!

I have plenty of wine. But I suggest a whiskey sour. Come over right away.

I can't believe those sweet little angels would ever do such a thing...hehe...
Feel free to take a short drive north anytime, I keep a well stocked liquor cabinet full of pretty colored things to drink!
(how else do you think Michaela has survived to see 9yrs old!)

They are Little Sweethearts! Why didn't they paint Luc's nails, too? I think they had fun, and I don't blame them one bit! They probably laughed the whole time you were cleaning up!

Don't you know by now that Mommies can only take a shower when toddlers are sleeping unless someone else is home? Sorry, Jenn, hope today is a better day for you....
