While you're having fun in Disney World, Bill..

......I spent yesterday with 4 kids, attempting to paint Hannah Banana's room......brown. Now I will be honest, brown would not have been my choice for the color of this bedroom, but.....it really came out fantastic. I think her new bed set and the bedding will look great. (Pictures to post on Tuesday afternoon!!!)

Anyway - Hannah, her friend Sydney, Connor and GARRIN all got together to get the job done!

Say goodbye to the feminine, pretty periwinkle color.....

.......having fun....

ALWAYS make sure toddlers are wearing nothing but a diaper, when painting a bedroom.

How cute is he, with his little paint roller????
After about an hour of painting with the kids, and.........
the outlets started looking like this:

And the cable jacks started looking like this:

And the baseboards (argh.....) started looking like this:

Its time to tell everyone to go make brownies, and finish the job yourself.
So Bill - I am nominating you right here and now for the job of ............the boys bathroom!!!!

I have to say, you were holding it together pretty well after the chocolate paint EXPLOSION when I stopped in yesterday. When I first saw Garrin I didn't quite understand what was ALL OVER HIM until I went upstairs and saw Hannah's room, LOL. And DRAT I forgot to get me a brownie when I left!!!

OK For the record I don't let my kids "help." It ends up just being a bigger job for me in the long run. You're a nice mom to let yours help though.

How did a "Type A" manage to tolerate the distress associated with that project??? :) I love the color and your kids are awesome.

Yeeaahhh....that paint all over the place is freaking me out. I agree you are the best Mom for letting them help. I might be too much of a control freak for that...I'll have to work on that.
