And this is what happens when you put away laundry and your daughter figures out that she can climb the trim on the cupboards to get what she wants off the counter.

When I walked around the corner (she was being really quiet) she jumped and said "uh-oh! Mommy hiccups on the floor". I have come to learn that hiccups are in fact makeup and not easy to wash off a little girl. The sharpies were all me. The hiccups, all her. After today if she did it again THEN I would take responsibility but you just can't predict when your children are going to learn to climb walls.

Ben was helping me put away the laundry, came into the kitchen, took one look at Kiera and RAN to her saying "Kiera what happened? Are you OK?" He was really worried until I told him what had happened. Then he looked at her and said "Kiera just dirty. Kiera dirty and in big trouble." He thought it was pretty funny. So do I. Now. Ask me again when I try to get the "warmth" off my carpet.

Oh my, I don't know what to say! This gave me a bit of a chuckle but I am not sure how I would feel being on the other end :) Happy cleaning!

I have just discovered your blog (have my own journey with a 3 year old with CP). Thanks for making me smile.
