Can't a girl getta shower 'round here?

I stay home one day a week to clean and catch up on house stuff. The other 6 days are filled with activities, errands etc...but I allow myself a day to just get up, stay in PJs and clean. Since I just pop out of bed and start cleaning, it's pointless to shower first thing, so I usually wait till the Buggernut is down for a nap. Today, however, I felt particularly nasty after scuubbing floors on my hands and knees and cleaning bathrooms. So, I decided to set the Nut up with a coloring book and crayons and take a 5 minute shower. *5* Minutes. That's all I was gone. In 5 minutes, all but 3 windows in the house...which she can't reach...were covered in blue crayon. But, not JUST the windows...the windowsills, the walls next to the windows, one blind slat, and her desk. I didn't know whether or not to be more upset about the people that gift my 2 year old child faux-Crayola non-washable crayons, or me for actually not just throwing out the faux-Crayola non-washable crayons and instead putting them in the crayon bin, or the Nut for choosing that particular faux-Crayola non-washable crayon to color all over the place. Needless to say, after an hour long date with Mr. Clean and his Magic Eraser (read: chemical filled miracle worker), the crayon was gone and all the faux-Crayola non-washable crayons were in the trash. And now, a plea on behalf of all the parents of young children in America....PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF ADAM spend the extra 20 cents and buy the kid real Crayola washable crayons!

I'll add washable crayons to the list for when you guys are here. :)

Actually, Josh has done it so many times, the magic eraser is my best friend.

Oh no!!! Actually, I seem to remember my brother and I doing the same thing when we were little. It was one of the few times I remember seeing my mother cry. :(
