While Daddy Napped.......

The Culprits: Lauren and Emily


The Victim: Unsuspecting Daddy (who was napping on the couch!)





The Crime: Kissing Walls


















Okay, the pictures will tell the story, but basically, I left to pick Michael up from school and the girls stayed behind with daddy, who was VERY (his words) tired. I thought I had gotten rid of all my extra Mary Kay makeup, but apparently I forgot something. I told the girls before I left, "Go play princesses in your room." They took me very literally. Every princess needs lipstick and a prince to kiss. Unfortunately for my walls, the girls didn't ask daddy to pretend to be the prince. They didn't want to disturb him. He was napping after all. So, several of the walls in their bedroom got kissed with a nice shade called "Sweet Maple". It's a long lasting lip polish. Thank you Mary Kay.... I laughed so hard, I almost wet my britches! Eric didn't think it was near as funny! Hmmmmm, role reversal???? Walked, no napped, in my shoes for an afternoon!

lmrn_ny said...

Now, that is funny! That looks like something Alissa and Sophie would have done. Ok, so I blogged for the first time in a long time...Just sayin hello!!!!

Lula! said...

Hi--thanks for stopping by my blog and reading all about tampons. What an introduction, huh? I've enjoyed reading through your posts. This particular one is adorable--now I'm just waiting for my girls to do this one day. I'm sure it's only a matter of time.

I'll be back soon...

Joe57 said...

I agree with lmrn_ny. Now, that's funny. I don't care who you are. I was just thinking that maybe you should "shrine off" that spot for posterity. At least you'll these pictures to remind them of what they did when they were kids while they are complaining to you about their kids in your grandmotherhood.

truly, your kids are artists

Caroline said...

OMG...that is so cute! That is going to be a good picture to keep for the future!

Tara@From Dawn Till Rusk said...

Eeek! My 3-year-old has just discovered make-up. She sits there in front of me all glassy eyed and fascinated while I'm putting (slapping) it on in the morning. I just DREAD the day she decides to try it out.

Z's Mom said...

That is great....they'll be glad to look back on that one when they are older.

I'd like to say "at least I have a son so I don't have to worry about that".....but I wouldn't put that past him....

wehave9 said...

Hello sitsa! Congrats on your day! Girls will be girls, we have to lock up makeup around here too!

Heather said...

Hee hee! I'm glad I'm not the only mom who photographs such things (in my kiddo's case, it was, thank goodness, washable markers) before cleaning up the evidence!

I trust that the walls are no longer quite so smooched, or did the long lastingness stay on forever? Hopefully a magic eraser took care of it for you! :)

Cheers!

4 under 4 said...

Congrats on your SITS nod! You can't turn your back for a second, I know this well. I always know when my 4 get eerily quiet, something bad is going down, and it usually ends up requiring a Magic Eraser!!!!!

Love your blog!!!!!

wendy said...

Congrats on the SITS feature! Did you get it off? Lipstick is such a PITA! Very funny stuff, though!

Givinya De Elba said...

Oh no! Hope it came off! Great post.

Colleen said...

Happy SITS Day! Can't wait to read more...

Caroline said...

Yay Yay Yay it's your big SITS day! I'm so happy for you. Your blog is so fun and the best thing is its real life stuff. Now, instead of saying the walls have ears, you can say the walls have LIPS!!!

Hot Tub Lizzy said...

Happy SITSday!!!

I SO wish they would have kissed daddy!

Crazy Momma said...

Hysterically funny! Dads...this SO could have happened in my house. If I had girls. And wore makeup. :)

Karol said...

Happy SITS day!!

Oh, what kids do...lol...

The Pruetz Family said...

I'm laughing out loud at this! It could so easily be any mommy on earth, too!

Feliz said...

Don't you love the way that daddies watch the kids with their eyes closed in a deep slumber? Too funny! Congrats on your SITS nod.

Amy said...

Congrats on you SITS day!

When daddies are asleep, little girls will play.... :)

Adelaine said...

Happy SITS day!

Oh the trouble kids will get into when the parents are napping!

Melissa Lester said...

Not quite the home makeover you had in mind?

Party of 5 said...

Happy SITS Day!

How cute are they. I love it and I love that you were able to get a pic of a perfect pair. Frame that...LOL.

thotlady said...

Very cute. I would leave the lip prints, very decorative.

Once when I was in high school my mom put my younger brother down for a nap in my room (I can't remember why. Instead of sleeping he decided to play with my perfumed talcum powder. When I went in to check on him, the powder was all over...I mean all over the carpet, my dresser the bed...and my brother. I was so mad.

Congratulations on being the featured blogger today.

Jen said...

the next question... Does that call for a repaint? Maybe a neww color?

Ronnica said...

Maybe they just wanted a more grown up room. Have you seen the room decorations (probably aimed at preteens or teens) with kisses and lipstick and stuff?

Rph Mommy said...

Too cute! It's too bad Daddy didn't get kisses. THAT would have been adorable.

Threeundertwo said...

That's so funny! I would have probably kept at least one and put a little frame around it, like a handprint.

angie said...

So cute.......how'd you get it off the walls?

Debbie said...

Hi Melissa!!!! You are SITS QUEEN of the day. I am so excited for you. You just won't know what hit you by the end of the day! And really, this was a brilliant post to put up and draw new friends in. Soooo sooo funny..

Migraine Mom said...

Hi SITS-ta! Too funny...did it come off the walls!!!

Kelly said...

They knew the look they wanted didn't they?!
Happy SITS day.

Kathi said...

Hilarious! I love it.

Creative Junkie said...

rotf!! I know your husband doesn't think so (my husband would have had a coronary) but I think that is just adorable!

Deanna said...

Don't you love that every SITSta has a story like that to share? Mine involves chocolate syrup and cheez whiz! Ha! So thankful for Mr. Clean Magic Eraser!!

sassy stephanie said...

how long did it take to get that off??!!

Dana said...

Yup, sounds like a couple of imaginative ones you've got there! LOVE the pictures. Hey, I hear that baking soda and water makes a paste as good as Magic Erasers. I LOVE magic erasers here but baking soda sure is cheaper! Give it a try.....can't hurt. I mean, I'm sure the lipstick has been cleaned up by now but keep it in mind for next time! LOL

Rhea said...

Those little stinkers!!

Cute blog design, congrats on your SITS day in the sun!

Neurotically Yours: said...

HE didn't think it was funny?? That is total role reversal for ya!! Congrats on being featured!

Jen said...

I have been waiting for my boys to do something like this...I am a makeup junkie so I would probably cry if it did happen, but it doesn't look like they smashed the lipstick, just applied it.
So cute!

Jenni said...

I love that you laughed. That would have been my reaction. . .oh wait, that WAS my reaction when my then two year old and her little friend (a boy) tried out all the makeup in my case--on each other. They looked like clowns and my floor matched their faces!

Lisa@BlessedwithGrace said...

That is great. So glad you got pictures to tell the story.

Katie Says said...

that is so CUTE! I love the looks on their adorable faces.

Tena said...

that is too funny, was it hard to clean it off the walls?

Tiff said...

Happy SITS day! Too funny! Hope it came off the walls okay!

Swirl Girl said...

What...Who ...Me? That's the precious look on their faces.

Why didn't they put kisses all over daddy?? Mine would have.

too cute

Marla said...

creative kids you've got... I like the idea that they figured out the one thing most dads would never think could happen with lipstick... napping or not

Mrs. S said...

that is hilarious. how would he have felt if they'd kissed him instead?!

Jacki McHale said...

Daddy should be so lucky they didn't cover him in long lasting lipstick!

Jacki
SITS sister!

Becky :) said...

Congrats on your SITS day!!!
That is hilarious. If it were my girl when she was younger it would have been her Dad that had it all over him and she would have been very careful not to wake him up while doing it. :-)
Have a great weekend.
SITS
Sista :-)

Linney Shvede said...

Congrats on your SITS day! Oh what will they do next! very cute post!

Cara Starr said...

oh my. do mr clean erasers work for lipstick too?

Katy Lin :) said...

i think that every little girl has done this at some point in their life. heck, i still play with my mom's beauty products whenever we visit, lol :)

Sonya said...

Although I love little girls...this picture makes me glad I have a boy!!! :) I don't know if I would be mad and at who or if I would be sitting laughing my hiney off until it came to cleaning it off...which I would have made Daddy do! :)

Great post!

klynch said...

so very cute gave me a chuckle!

Shannon said...

Very cute! I love their expressions in the first pic... kind of like, we didn't do anything!

I woke up once to find my oldest daughter (who was 2 at the time) giving herself a new mani/pedi... pink nail polish all over her hands and feet!

Stephanie said...

Congrats!

This is too cute to be mad at. Lotsa love on those walls!!!!!

Amy said...

That is SOO stinkin' cute! They will only be little for a short time. Enjoy!

Ashley said...

Oh, that reminds me of my niece. I turn my back for a second and my makeup is GONE! :)

~*Paty*~ said...

Haha! I just love kids!

Michelle said...

I love it! And I must say, from the shape of those lip prints, they do an awfully good job of putting ON the lipstick.

My husband sometimes naps when "watching" the wee ones, as well. I've asked him nicely not to (at 2 and 4, this is not smart in my book!), and now I have visual proof for him!

EmBee said...

You know, some people pay top dollar to stencil a room like this... You might just consider your daughters as aspiring interior decorators.

emily said...

You should buy stock in magic eraser. I'm sure you'll need it more and more...

Hope you're having fun on your SITS day!

Angie said...

That is priceless!! Congrats on your SITS spotlight day!

Katrina :) said...

HILARIOUS!!! My son did that... with markers at gramma's. Not fun at the time, but we crack up now. :)

At Home Redesigns said...

So cute! Hope you leave those kisses up there forever!

Hairline Fracture said...

In a few years you will probably be all nostalgic about those little lip prints!

Jessica said...

WOW!! LOL my hubby has done the samething, but I have boys so I would probably find something worse.

Adiel said...

That is actually a very interesting idea for wall decor. I might have to steal this idea and turn it into something that works for me. :)

Tamara @ Watching the Grass Grow said...

Congrats on the SITS feature! What a funny thing--maybe now you have ammo for something? ("Well, I'm not the one who slept while the girls...")

jennifer said...

I would SO work those smooches into the decor. My girls were never that creative. Pen on wallpaper, that's it. But I like these smooches...on YOUR walls!

Jen

Kris said...

Here from SITS - and it's good for things like this to happen to them when they watch the kids...how could he be mad at those cute little wall kisses?

Mamasphere said...

I've learned my lesson- too many crazy things have happened when daddy's been on duty but has fallen asleep for a little nap. No more leaving the kid with a tired dad!

Karen said...

LOL!! Cute kids.

Funny how Mums can be really tired, but still manage to stay awake!! We are definitely made of the sterner stuff. :-)

Susan said...

Maybe they were practicing for a future prince similar to when you are in junior high and you practice on the back of your hand. Too cute!

Kaza said...

Oh NO! I'm amazed my 3yo hasn't done that one yet.

Laurel said...

Oh I am so glad you documented this for liberal use during their rehearsal dinner or something:)! Too cute.

Smoochiefrog said...

Oh my!

Congrats on your SITS day!

lynn said...

Ha! Another good reason I never wore lipstick!

Happy SITS day!

Apryll said...

Oh I used to love making kiss marks with my Grandma's lipsticks. ha ha. Were you able to get it off?

Almost Catholic Momma said...

Just what my daughter would do....and my husband too (sleep through it). I loved reading this post. Very funny.

stefanie said...

Oh, so funny! Enjoying my SITS tour. I'll be back.

Ms. J. to you! said...

Makes me glad to have a son! LOL! Cute story!

Sarah said...

Tooooo cute. Every princess gets a little carried away sometimes!

Just say Julie said...

Here from SITS (Sorry I didn't come by yesterday). This is hilarious and makes me so thankful I have a boy... though he did his own coloring on his grandparents bed while his grandfather "watched" him with his eyes closed. When I came by to pick him up there it looked like a crime scene outline! Nice.

Britt said...

I see what I have to look forward too ... instead of poop and spit, lipstick!

I'm liking the future :o)

Though I'm wondering if (and how) you ever got it off the walls? And I'm wondering if my favorite Magic Eraser would work it's .. erm, magic? lol Too funny!

Jenna said...

Oh wow!!

I'm starting to wonder what my lil turkeys will conspire up to do together when the time comes....EEK!

Christine said...

LOL - I am thinking that daddy gets to do some painting - wait scratch that - just let's pretend it is a border!

Casey's trio said...

I'm here from SITS...what a cute post! I think daddy's lucky that was the only trouble they got into:)
