House Proud??

So I have an old friend from High School coming over to hang out tonight at my house. I haven't seen her in at least 3 years so I'm super excited! Of course I have spent the better part of the morning trying my best to tidy up the house (that she will be seeing for the first time...). I realize that this is a some-what futile thing to be doing as my 3 boys pretty much are the equivalent of an F-5 tornado these days. But still, I feel obligated to try. Dang-it! I like to at least try to impress people the first time around!

I finally made it to wiping down the kitchen table that I so lovingly restored all by myself. Guess what I found that wouldn't wipe up??


It now looks like we celebrate Mardi Gras year round...

I could have SWORN that the paint we were using the other day was that really good kid-friendly, wipe right up kind.

I was soo soo wrong. Grrr.

I so understand the frustration of keeping a house clean with kids--let alone boys. I have too many mishaps with crafts to count--I hope that you don't break your back fixing the table back up :)
