Running late this morning!

So… I woke up a little later than usual. Waking at 6:30 still gave me plenty of time for my morning Bible Study and quiet time. The boys can take it easy on Thursdays because they don’t have preschool in the morning. I let them go to the playroom to have some fun while I took my shower. I had just finished drying my hair and getting dressed when the boys ran into my bathroom with big grins on their face — looking like this:


and this:


even down to their feet!


Needless to say, I did not make it to work by 8:30!! They had colored their faces, arms, chests, legs, feet, and other body parts. It took several tubs full of hot water and LOTS of scrubbing to get them cleaned up.

I absolutely love being a mom. Although their shenanigans made me a bit late getting to my office, I wouldn’t have traded the looks on their faces when they ran upstairs to show me what they had done for all the world. They are good¬†little guys and have really never done anything like that before. Somehow, they just got an idea that it would be fun to “decorate themselves” this morning! Unfortunately, I have to call a carpet cleaner for the colorful footprints they left on the playroom carpet (the ONE room that’s carpeted in our home!).

But… at the end of the day, it’s a fun memory that we’ll laugh about for years to come.
