Some people can go through life and never regret one decision they have made – Me? I regret things all the time and wish that I could go back and do things differently. While I was thinking about this topic I was actually having a hard time narrowing down which moment I should talk about – Am I the only one like this? Well it just so happens that while I was thinking about something to do-over one of those moments happened! We had gone to the drive-in movie the night before and both my husband and I were tired! So tired that neither of us felt like getting up with our kids that morning and we just let play in their rooms for a few moments -
If you have been following along with my blog, then you know that I have been working on remodeling my kids rooms – and pretty much our entire upstairs is in complete disarray!
My son is very aware of what is going on and is really excited for his new room – he loves to help me every step along the way and when he sees my paint clothes will ask “Mommy you painting my new room?” They have been really great not to touch anything or the fresh paint and I have been impressed with how well they have behaved…. until…. Quinn came into my room and in my half conscious state I heard him say “I helping!!” I rolled over and immediately leaped out of bed – but you would too if this was staring you in the face:
At first my husband thought it was pink paint – which left us wondering – but we soon found out it was only spackle! Which was still a HUGE pain, but easier to clean up than paint! We have the spackle which is pink until it dries – so you can see that we aren’t too neglectful since all the spackle is still pink and hadn’t dried yet – but that little monkey was super “helpful!”
I thought I had gotten all the holes the day before, but apparently I had missed quite a few….
So yes, if I had it to do over, I would have gotten my lazy body out of bed and played with my kids that morning instead of scrubbing down the bed, the hallway and the carpet! Playing Little People is much more enjoyable!
Have any of you ever needed a “do-over” with your little helpers??
