Anyways, I decided to snap some pictures of my favorite Littlest Moments (and how to fix 'em). Wait, I just realized that one is a video and I don't know how to post a video. Dang it.
I was helping Oldest with some things in his room. Littlest got really quiet. Quite is BAD, especially from her. I decide to investigate as I could hear her on the stairs and she shouldn't be on the stairs. I walked out of Oldest's bedroom and right there on the wall was a giant letter H. This letter H was followed by more letter H's. They went side by side down one wall, around the corner, and up the wall by the stairs.
I bought Mr. Clean Magic Erasers and made her little ornery butt scrub them all off the walls. And I only ripped out about 4 hairs out of 10 (like that rating system?) from the Letter H fiasco.
Now the one that really got to me happened this morning. Oldest and I have been working on a model helicopter for a few days. And what I really mean is I have been working on it while Oldest watched. Littlest had enough of me spending time with her brother and demonstrated it in a new and unique way. She spilled Barbie Pink nail polish all over my bathroom. See:
And this is only part of the disaster. It covered the floor too.
Here is where my compulsive need to hoard come in super handy. I had this old toothbrush that I was planning on using for Chubaca. It worked great in combination with nail polish remover to get all the paint off the counter.
Think I can still use this on Chubaca?? .......
Is that a "No?" I figured.
The real magic here wasn't so much the bristled side of the tooth brush, but the tongue scraper side. You know the rubbery thing thats stuck to the back of the toothbrush.
See? This part here works fantastic for the pools of hardened paint!
Oh, and for the floors I dumped out remover and mopped it. Worked great!
You can see by the background that all Barbie Pink polish has been successfully removed. This one ended up with an 8 out of 10 ripped out hairs. Since there is no school tomorrow either I imagine that she will try yet again to hit that magic 10. At which point no amount of Xanex in the world can help me.
And on a totally sad note: All the playing in poop water took its toll on Chubaca's feet. The pads on his back feet are all torn up and starting to get infected despite the massive quantities of peroxide I have been using on him. The up-side? He can totally rock out the two sock look.
Littlest showed her rarely seen Sweet side when I was bandaging Chuey's feet. She pet his head and loved on him. Then as a reward for his good behavior she added accessories to his bandaged feets.
And every dog wants Dora band-aids. Trust me.
And I promise that towel used to be clean.
Well, before I cleaned out his paws it was.
Apparently peroxide doesn't agree with my towels.
Or maybe it works really great and got all the junk off his paws.
Either way- still looks gross in this picture.
Think I can win the "Longest Picture Caption" award?
I bet if I tried really hard I could.
But then you would prolly get bored and leave me forever.
And I can't have that cause I need you.
You keep me sane.
Well, on most days.
