Welcome To My Life


Can anyone guess what this picture is?

I'll give you a few minutes......

Okay, times up.

It's my fakeass ficus tree - with peanut butter on it. Everyone knows that silk plants, while eschewing water, quite enjoy peanut butter.

In the background of the picture, that is my dining room table, stained with paint and crayons and marker and whatever else my little darlings can etch with.

And to think, someday I will miss those little handprints on the wall. Life is strange, isn't it?

I knew it was peanutbutter. Do I get a prize? heeheehee.

Yes, kids do that to you. I always miss when they were just babies or toddlers, then my SIL reminds me of the bad parts when she talks about what she is going through right now with her son. But I will say, the oldest was easier at that age, even when he smeared poop all over the place, or when he painted the kitchen with tomato sauce.

This seems eerily familiar. What is so fascinating about smearing something gooey all over mommy's stuff??
Savannah once painted my kitchen table and chairs with Vagisil. Be thankful it was just peanut butter. LOL!

Chelle - Amazingly it washed out. I'll start marketing PB as a good way to clean silk.

Crazed - You have had a poop smearer too? That's my favorite to clean.

Kristin - Vagisil? ROTFL

Missing the smear-y stuff? Not so much. Maybe the smear-y faces but not the peanutbutter or oatmeal or bubblegum (Who gave the baby bubblegum???!!!)all over everything below my knees.

That's why my silk plants faded,not enough peanut butter.

My table looks much the same,sadly my kids are 8 and 13. You'd think they STOP acting like little kids by now.

Is this where I proudly announce that my grandson is the artist?

Hmmm.

I'm getting the impression I may not piss Picasso around the house.

Miss - not piss. What is wrong with me?

My boys decided, EVEN AFTER the Sharpie fiasco, to write on the dining room table - in pencil. Fine, erasable, but pencils? Leave grooves. In the one piece of furniture we have purchased brand-spanking-new in the past eleven years.

Anyone want some kids, cheap?

Liz - Maybe if I eat some M&M's first.

Babelbabe - Sadly, I'd rather have the boy wipe pb on the ficus than on my clothes, as he tends to do.

You are getting too popular.

And Piss Picasso? Absolutely.

I keep thinking "These are the gravy years. These are the gravy years." In fact, I just looked down at my Fresh Produce Mom-Dress (butt ugly but good as a swim suit coverup) and Look! I'm actually covered in drools and spurts of what appears to be gravy! So These MUST be the gravy years! I had my 22 month old niece with us today, 2 hours at the pool. Lotsa trips to the Roach Coach for goodies. The poor little thing finally slumped over in her seat, sound asleep as 7 kids played noisily around her.

Hey, I need to ship those shoes! Email your address. Or somebody's address.
