I finished my morning shower and got dressed. Twisting my wet hair up into a towel and securing it on top of my head I stepped out into the kitchen and froze, my jaw dropping open.
The towel may have unceremoniously dropped to the floor too, but I can't be sure. All I could see before me was a wide and vast sea of mess.
The paper drawer had been emptied, coating the floor in paper, scraps, and coloring books. On top of the papers and heavily sprinkled about lay waves and waves of markers, crayons, and yarn, all pulled from the kids art drawer.
A bag of bread was cast off into one corner, leaving a trail of half eaten pieces in it's wake. Baby snacks were crushed and strewn across the paper coated floor.
The small bib drawer was pulled open and the little cloth protectors were dangling and dripping from it. Hiding her face behind the open drawer stood a three-year old girl who had about six bibs attached around her neck.
Across the room the drawer that held things like sandwich bags and aluminum foil also lay wide open and half its contents sat on the floor beneath it. The cup and tupperware drawer had also been ravished and relieved of their contents.
In yet another corner my cook books and recipe cards had been dumped out, and in the middle sat one very happy almost one-year old.
The almost five-year old lay one top of the counter munching away at a piece of bread as though he were king of the world.
I took in the scene, then reminded myself to breathe.
Then I .... *beeeeeeep* We're sorry, this program is temporarily out of service. It would appear a power surge temporarily shorted the circuits. Please wait while we fix the connection.*beeeeeeeeep* ....
Needless to say, it didn't take long for those kids to have it whipped back into shape.
The only thing is, I was so stunned I actually forgot to take a picture! And it takes a lot to shock me.
*hanging my head*
I'm losing my bloggy touch people. I feel so ashamed.
Still, if anyone were to ask me what the heck I do all day, I may just take to strangling them.
Lovingly... of course.
