The Vandalosers

Sorry, I have been absent from blog world lately. Maybe it was due to my crappy week. This is a lovely picture of what my week started out with.
I have these 2 boys who are now dubbed the vadalosers. These pics are just two of the many places that black spray paint ended up in my brand new house.



There were many other places, but I have gotten rid of most of it now. These lovely boys of mine did this at 10 o'clock last sunday night. I was in my sewing room trying to meditate, and also thinking of how quiet my house was with all the children in bed. Then my husband who was out with the horses came in and asked me if I had seen my boys or my house. No, I said.

He proceded with the grand tour of my newly painted walls, carpet, beds, dresser, countertop, cabinet and 3 (yes I said 3) pairs of my SHOES!!!! Also some of my jewelry. These very lovely children had gotten themselves into the bathtub. They were also covered in paint, hence the black handprints. Well, to keep me from prison, my husband ushered me away from them, and he scrubbed their little vandaloser bodies with paint thinner.

So all of my week has been spent in severe punishment. Not only of the boys, but of coarse it is punishment for me since I have to watch their every move, and make sure they are scrubbing every inch of the floor, which they have done twice this week.



You would never have guessed that these two would be little vandals. Would You?

My condolences. It is true. Punishing kids means punishing mom - but it's what you gotta do.
