-I have a collection of Willow Tree figurines. We had friends over recently and after they left, as we were getting the kids ready for bed, I found my figurines on my bed-rather than on the hope chest where they normally are displayed.
Yes, there was a nice pile of figurines. And a nice pile of heads.
Half the figurines had been decapitated. I don't assign sadistic motives to this situation as it was 2 and 3 year old girls who did it. It reminded me of the jingle...
"mama had a baby and it's head popped off."
Did you ever do that with dandelions? Well, I figure that they got started and saw how awesomely the heads popped off, and they decided to keep going.
Thankfully superglue fixes most everything...
-So, you know those gorgeous Pinterest pictures that show nice staircase photo galleries?
Yeah, well they don't show you what really happens when you hang artwork in your staircase....
Think bumped pictures, colossal crash, broken glass, dinged wall trim and marred paint job at the bottom of the stairs.
That would be a more accurate picture...
|yes, one of these no longer contains glass. |
But that's okay-becasue the glass just glared for blog pics anyhow...
-Or how about the case of the broken bottle of nail polish? That spilled all over the bathroom floor. All.over.
And that the culprit nobly tried to clean up on her own. Which involved toilet paper and wash rags...
Thankful in this instance that it was a linoleum floor, and that nail polish remover removed the majority of the traces of nail polish...
Yes, I think it would be prudent to close the curtain on this week and start over afresh. Armed, of course, with superglue, nail polish remover, a Dyson, and a generous sense of humor....
And maybe a 3 ingredient beef taco recipe that can't possibly go wrong?!
