I was up at 5:30 with Kyla and Presley and I was exhausted, so I layed in my bed, and fell asleep maybe. I woke up to Kyla saying "mom the girls made a big mess!!" So I jump up start running down the stairs and I smelt it.
In my head I thought, Mindy your kind of an idiot, didn't you learn last time to put the nailpolish in a DIFFERENT spot?!
So I went into the bathroom, and literally gasped! I didn't know how to react. I was so mad, at them, and myself. I will NEVER go back to my bed again. (If anything i'll go to the couch...)and I will NEVER leave the nail polish in reach!
I was too frustrated to take a picture, and wasn't sure how to deal with it, so I just threw them in the bath, I took pictures when they got in but they are nude so here is the best I can do. Their HAIR was covered, their legs, arms, and spots there shouldn't be nailpolish even had it!!
Sorry this picture has a shadow from the camera strap, but if you click on it or look hard enough you can see their legs and arms....
I bathed them for an hour! Because I know when I used to paint my nails, if i'd get some on my skin, it would come off in the shower. So I was hoping a lot would soak off. Nope not really. I had no idea how to get it out of their hair, so I looked online and it said baby oil or mineral oil. So I pulled out the baby oil, it took FOREVER but it worked. I had to pull piece by piece apart until I got most of it all out. The skin I used nailpolish remover where I could but by the end of the day most of the main spots wore off.
So then I had to rush and jump in the shower because I had to drive Kyla to school, still get them all dressed and ready and feed them lunch and it had been a few days of no showering so not showering was not an option! So I got ready and usually the girls just watch tv or play in Kyla's room. But no.... they were doing this....
This WAS my spotless livingroom...
And this is the bathroom.
That would be every deck of cards we own all over the floor, my stick plant, winter coats from the closet, and the bathroom with the pink nailpolish all over the rug from before. My new rug. There was also cereal all over my kitchen floor and the books and magazines were all over the stairs.
K seriously, my girls have NEVER been the type to do things like this. (Other than when they used my walls as their art canvas! Remember that?!) But they don't ever go through drawers and get into things or are mischevious. I was so mad. I made them clean up pretty much everything. But I was so frustrated because i've been so good at keeping up with the house and laundry and it made me so happy, and then they go and do this! Oh and it was only the twins by the way. Kyla was into her show, and upstairs with me most the time. I know I should have just checked on them, but I obviously haven't been with it lately. This I do know! But man. Oh and this was all before 10am! Could of killed. I definitely learned some lessons, and so did they!
