  • well i don't have any kids yet but this made me think of how I got one of my long-term babysitting gigs- because my brother got SOOO FIRED! He was watching this lady's kids (she had 3) and he let them color all over their bodies with washable markers- even the bottoms of their feet (I guess he figured, its washable what's the big deal?) but they ran all over the house (she had white carpet too!) and left footprints EVERYWHERE!!! She nearly fainted when she got home and saw that! hahahaha
    We still tease my brother about that!

  • Haha, I have a two year old, its a daily occurrence. I end up cleaning while he naps (IF he naps, here lately he's been refusing), and again once he goes to sleep...

  • All the time. I can clean all day long and when my son gets home from school it will look like a tornado came through.

  • Everyday and every night. It's great when i put them to bed and close the door and walk in the next morning and wonder what happened to the tornado that appeared sometime during the night.

  • He and the little boy i was babysitting decided every toy in the house needed to be out on the floor.

  • Actually it was a rainy day and they needed to occupy their time. However, to beat the boredom blues, they had their race car set built which was across the entire floor, lots of dishes from their snacks, clothes, snack wrappers from candy bars, and other games they had decided to play before the race track was still sitting out and not put away.

  • Only EVERYDAY do they turn it into a disaster zone! lol Sometimes the disaster is greater than other times. Sadly..the biggest mess maker is my oldest. Even the toddlers can't compare to the messes this boy can make! If I don't stop him in time, he will have every toy from his room in th emain part of the house, scattered, army men tied and hanging from doorknobs and light fixtures,homemade little ramps that he builds out of anythign he finds all over the house for him to jump over or for his army trucks to ride over,Wii games and cords scattered...I could go on and on.
