We're Out of Chocolate Syrup.

This morning started out great. I got to sleep in a little, sort of, since Ethan woke up early and wanted to lie in bed with me and sleep a little longer on my arm. Abby and Avery were being good. They were just sitting on the couch watching Playhouse Disney like little angels. At least that's what I thought they were doing...

Ethan finally wakes up, and we head into the living room. Abby and Avery were playing together very well and having tons of fun. Unfortunately, my living room was covered in chocolate and strawberry syrup. Apparently, the kids thought the doll house people and the baby dolls would enjoy a nice chocolate spa treatment. They filled the doll house bath tub and baby cradles with the syrup, and one by one they dunked the dolls.

So I had to wash my couch slipcover, give 2 kids a bath, wash about 10 towels, scrub the carpet, and wipe off the throw pillows - all before 8:30 in the morning. I know Daniel is going to ask me if I got any pictures. No. No I did not. Things like this are only funny long after they happen.

Right now my rug is outside drying - even though it's not "washable". My driveway is the baby doll drying zone. But on the bright side, the doll house people and the baby dolls are just blown away at how soft and supple their skin is after the spa treatment.

I know it was a huge mess, but at least you know that the kids can keep themselves occupied while you're not in the room.

Hmmm I'm not sure what would be worse...chocolate syrup or babylotion with babyoil. T-man did that one morning. Squeezed a trail of lotion w/baby oil in it from the backdoor all the way around the living room to the master bedroom. Chocolate stains or baby oil stains?...hmmmm.

Chrissie - did the oil EVER come up? I'm telling Daniel we need new carpet for sure now, but he says 2 year old carpet IS new.

anonymous - Good point!

Joy - If our boys ever spend the night with each other, it will be at YOUR house! I'd hate to see what they cook up together!!
