"What Did Jack Do, Momma?"

The People (aka Mommy and Daddy)

vs.

The Carpet Painter


Mug Shot:

The Weapons:

The Crime Scene:

The Attempted Explanation:


The Verdict: GUILTY!

(This was the scene we woke up to this morning. I'm so thankful for Jason's sense of humor. Upon returning to our room to tell me what had happened, his first comment was, "The camera batteries are dead." At least we have laughter...)

  8. Oh mannnnnn... This one is classic. Jack, I love you, man. I really do. This story put a jump in my step today. So funny. Thanks for sharing.

    I love Jason's reaction: "There's no batteries in the camera." THAT should wake you up.

  9. Oh great not only do you have to clean the carpet but you have to buy new makeup too :-)

    When my yongest was 2, he turned over a can of paint in my den floor and it spilled all over the den rug - then he stepped in it and ran all over the house looking at his footprints ------thank the Lord for hardwood floors!

  12. We had only been in our new house for a couple weeks when my middle daughter then about 3 opened a red bottle of my nail polish and smeared it all over her hands her legs my bathroom counter top and my bathtub. I am glad you can laugh so quickly because I was trying to get the nail polish off her legs through my own tears.
    Keeping on laughing!
    Smiles!

  13. Oh boy! I can imagine that you were not happy, but the pictures are priceless! You will laugh for years to come. My poor nephew who is now 15, is still teased about the red nail polish he spilled on Grandma's carpet, when he was supposed to be sleeping in their bedroom. (He was about 2)

  15. UH OH! That is too funny and cute too.
    Megan has found my lipstick before but hasn't done quite that much damage. She just put a rather big layer of lipstick all the way around her lips.

  16. Oh man! How funny is that & great that you guys do have a sense of humor about that. Reminds me of the time Caleb got ahold of a blue marker (thankfully washable) and colored himself with it & I mean everywhere..if you know what I mean. I started to feel myself get upset & then burst into laughter. Sometimes you just got to do it.

  17. Oh no, my favorite shade of Clinique!!!!!

    Hang in there honey. This too shall pass, I promise!

    ...well, except if the child's name is carved on all of your wood stuff. Oh, I forgot, she carved her sister's name on everything. How stupid did she think we were, hehe. Oh the mind of a child.

  18. Once my daughter keyed John's car...
    She denied it. We then READ it to her...
    "Courtney."

    She did it again with a friend, this time in crayon on the walls. "Macie," and "Courtney."

    "When will they learn?" I wondered...
    Then I thought, "hmmm... scary thought..."

  23. This is priceless. It's a good thing you have such a good attitude!! And it's great that you captured it all...this will make a great story!

    Maybe he was still in the Halloween spirit, of dressing up and everything?

    Did the stains come out of the carpet?

  29. I just discovered 4 hour old chocolate milk on the BRAND NEW CARPET in the middle of my son's room this afternoon. Whoooeeee!! Momma was HOT! I didn't exactly laugh like you did...I did a little Yosemite Sam impression, but at least he wasn't there to catch it. Love the mug shots!
