You do the math

This


Plus this (green of course, which we no longer have)



Equals this....


Why, you ask? Because she was home ALONE, with Daddy for 90 minutes. I was at a scout meeting with Michael, just on my way home. I place my "do you need anything? I'm on my way home" call and he tells me, "No. I've gotta go, I have a situation here." I laugh and hang-up. I wonder all the way home, what could he possibly have going on? I knew it was nothing earth shattering, he would have been calling ME.
I arrive home, to find my daughter an "Oh my GOSH, I'm so sea sick shade of green" and Honey on his hands and knees with carpet cleaner. LOL! Apparently, the paint tube had dried and Mina, looking directly into the tube, squeezed! Haaaa, bet she won't do that again. Needless to say, out carpet has a lovely green tint. So now, THAT is our new favorite color!!

"An optimist is a person who sees a green light everywhere, while a pessimist sees only the red stoplight. . . The truly wise person is colorblind."

See? At least she didn't load up into a power wheel hummer & try to go get some carpet cleaner at the store!

BTW - when your blog was loading up, my husband walked by & he said (talking about the very first picture)... THAT'S a beautiful little girl - what an excellent picture! So then I showed him her sea sick impression & he started laughin and said - now that looks like one of OUR kids!!

Beautiful little girl!

OMGosh, everytime I think of that Hummer story, I crack the freak UP! What scares me is, if we had one, I think she might have. LOL!

Thank your hubby for the kind words. :)

Hee-Hee-Hee~ So funny! Poor Mina! I bet she was so surprised!

The first picture of Mina is amazing. If Graham was a little older I'm sure he'd have a BIG crush on her!

LOL! I can't stop laughing. That is priceless. It seems all this kind of stuff always happens when the Dad is in charge. At least at my house.

Too cute!

The first picture is very sweet.

Baby Girl is with me this morning, and we always check out your page together as she thinks she is a princess.. and this morning I hear - 'Look Momma - the princess page'... and then I scrolled down and showed her the green picture and Baby Girl said ewww...'she ate green beans'.... LOL

Big Guy told her last night that if she ate her green beans her face would turn green - I have no idea why - they are kids...

Anyway - your kids are precious, Good luck!

Mina is NOW back to her original color, after a couple of days of greeness.

The carpet however, a completely different story. It still has a lovely green glow, lol!

Isn't it amazing the thins that happen when daddies are looking after the little ones. Can they be trusted ??? :-)
Hope the green came off OK. Try SARDS Wonder Soap (don't know if you have that in your part of the world), it takes all stains out of everything. Amazing stuff. Best of luck, Meow

I mean, in my house it's always his fault :o)
