there is a danger in daring to doodle during the day when a toddler is on the prowl, as you can see in this five minute wrath of a two year old. and i don’t even have the heart to show you the toothpaste wrath of a six year old. imagine an entire tube of sculptures on the light fixtures, the wall, the bathtub, the floor; bathroom shelves adorned with crisp stripes, sink knobs thoughtfully painted, the basin a sea of blue. what’s that you say? this and this? OK… i’ll try… but alas, i think daylight creating is out of the question for the moment. back to moonlighting for a while 😉

  1. haha! that’s just what one of my children’s room looks like alll the time! the eldest is halfway to that, and the youngest is working on the remainder of the house…much to my mil’s consternation.

    Oh, I know this so well….

    Except my boys have been known to add their bodily functions to the mess…

    And my oldest did a Jackson Pollack-esque soap installation on the bathroom floor…

    Wouldn’t it be fun to fill a gallery with all these images of our children running amok?

  5. I just showed this to the offender, who is now three years old. “Hey, that’s my room!” she said. “Wow, what a mess.” Then she blamed it on her older sister.

    I love this, thanks for sharing it. Yesterday I tried clearing out my kids room because, like this, I couldn’t walk into it. Then I tried clearing out from under the beds………!
