Busy, busy, busy

This weekend has been a weekend of painting and poop. We got a lot accomplished with the painting. The bathrooms and basement are left to paint. And a few touch ups. It looks soooo much better. Anybody who has seen it will know the ugly color of baby poop brown the baseboards and doors were. They are now white. Actually polar bear white to be exact.
Then there was the cleaning up of more poop. Seriously why does this stuff happen. Does it happen as often to others and they just don't tell about it? Cause it's grossing me out. Because we were painting Quinten's room the two kids were sharing Taylor's room for a couple of nights. She had diarrhea again for those 2 nights and was too preoccupied playing with him to make it to the bathroom. And once again she tried to clean it up herself which made a bigger mess for me to clean up. And this afternoon, right after Chris got Quinten's room back in order, Quinten decided to take his diaper off and play with his poop, again. At least he didn't get it on the wall. Just all over him and the crib. WHY ME? I know I'm not the only one. Quinten is lucky we ran out of duct tape or else. I'm going to have to use the technique we used for Taylor when she went through this stage. Good times. That is our weekend in a nut shell. I hope everyone else's was just as fun. I will now leave you with some pictures. One is a comparison of the new and old colors. Dark is old.

Nope...just you chick...Jaymee never played with her poop.

Good luck with that.

We are thinking about painting our office a lilac color because Maya will be moving in here when we start trying for another baby. We are also thinking of painting our dining room with a burgundy suede color. We are not sure what it will look like against an eggshell wall but we'll see. Anything is better than a baby-poop color....right??!

Looks like the house is coming along nicely. You will be moving in no time!

I hope it's just you Kirst, or else you'll turn me off of wanting kids forever! Well, not really, I'm sure I'd just suck it up as all good parents do becuase the joy of having them outweighs this phase in their lives. I just hope that I will at least be like you and see the bright side of it -entertaining memories! One day you'll look back & laugh - or embarrass them!
