"Momma, we have a surprise for you!!"

As you probably know this did not turn out well.

I go to find the munchkin who yelled this. Both kids are in their bathroom. There is sunscreen all over one (I should have gotten a picture, but I was so mad I couldn't stand it and didn't think about it). I mean ALL OVER. I couldn't get her clothes off of her without getting it in her hair all over her face and all over me. There was sunscreen covering the floor in the bathroom. I had to wash her hair 3 times to get it all out. I couldn't get the soap or the shampoo to actually lather up there was so much sunscreen.

Both kids had florescent green sharpie marker on their arms and faces. They had marker on the bathtub, toilet, walls, cabinets, and MY TOWELS!!

I bathed them, cleaned the bathroom, put the stuff in the washing machine, brushed their teeth, and put them to bed. It is an hour early, but it had to be done. Not so much for the sunscreen which is easy enough to clean, but the sharpie PERMANENT marker all over everything. I just hope that the Magic Eraser will get it out. I thought I had one left, but I'm out so it will be tomorrow before I can get one. I know it won't come out of my towels though.

I'm really upset that I didn't get pictures. They would definitely be ones I could look back on and laugh. *sigh*

Drat ... not first. At least it was Chez. LOL ... Nail polish remover (acetone) works. Be careful, that stuff can eat paint and fade towels.

Ah, the joys of children!!!

I love my son just as you love your kids, but damn if he doesn't do some of the messiest stuff sometimes!

Thanks for sharing!
