A little funny.....sort of


Ok, I know I have been pretty bad about keeping you all updated. Maybe I am overwhelmed with everything that has to do with our move....or maybe it's the fact that DH works 12 hour days, or could be that I am just plain tired.... Nah, I just haven't had much to say. Now that I have half the house painted I have had loads of time to think and that folks is dangerous, but I will save that post for another time.


I just logged on to share a little funny story about Grace. Had to share because I was laughing. (it was either that or run screaming to the shower)


Anyway, I had this amazing idea that I should finish painting the master bath. You see, I did the main bathroom part and forgot the closet toilet. (don't you just love those??) So, I thought ok, it's a 2x2 room, shouldn't take that long. I will just pop a movie in for the little ones in my bedroom and start painting.....well about twenty minutes in I had the bottom trim finished and the corners done, Grace comes in and wants to be held. So, I thought ok I could be a good mama and hold her and STOP painting or I could be a better mama (haha) and hold her while I finish painting... All is going well until I have to take the tank lid off. Yeah, you might want to walk away now....


I take the lid off and set it down. Must get more paint in the pan so I set Grace down for a minute and look away to get the paint. I come back and she is still where I left her. (so I thought) Mind you I stepped three feet away and it took all of one minute.


She is doing ok, watching me so I begin to roll the last wall, we get closer to the potty and she decides it might be fun to flush it. This would have been ok had she not taken a tube out of the drain thingy. (not sure what it is called) So, she flushes and water. (TOILET WATER!!) is spraying all over the both of us. She thought this was very funny and I would have to if Hope had not just used the potty and not forgotten to flush. You guys get the idea. Unclean potty water, all over me, Grace and my newly painted walls. Like I said you either laugh or run to the shower. Me, I laughed, who can resist a two years old belly laugh and not follow suit. I would show you pictures but personally I just couldn't get to my camera......

I am laughing. That's pretty funny. In the long run, that is one of the precious stories you tell her when she brings home her first boyfriend.
