Kaden, the Artist

So last night I went and picked up some pink paint to test out a color for the nursery. As I was brushing the color on the wall Kaden was obviously interested and wanted to help out, so I made the mistake of letting him take the brush and painting a little bit on the wall.....and leaving the paint (the lid closed of course) on the floor in the bedroom. This morning James walked in to find that Kaden had pried the paint bucket open and proceeded to paint all over the walls and doors in the nursery, down the hall, the bathroom and his bedroom. Not to mention a huge portion of the CARPET, the brand new WHITE rug I just bought for the nursery, the shelf, several of his toys, our dog Mokie and himself. I felt bad getting mad at him, it really was my own fault for leaving the paint out, and plus he was so proud of himself! Needless to say, we were able to get the paint off the walls, though most of the toys went in the garbage. I was lucky to find a carpet cleaner that was nice enough to come out within 25 minutes of my desperate phone call. I'm sure I am yet to find many marks of this artistic adventure, but for now....disaster averted

Poor Mokie.... you can't see it from the picture but he has paint all over his back

This wall actually got the least of it but I didn't pull my camera out until most of the paint was cleaned up

Thanks Kelly's Deep Clean!
