That rule was broken.
I thought the paint was far enough away on the counter.
But………I forgot about the stool.
And why were the paint bottles on the counter and not immediately put away after I bought them the night before?
I thought it would quickly wipe off.
That’s why I pulled out the camera.
However, I had to pull out the trusty Magic Eraser to get the job done.
Edited to add: I had to post a similar child-with-paint-catastrophe that a reader sent me the link to, here. (Thanks Nike!) I just can’t get over the big ‘ol mess. My little blue dribbles are nothing. I looked at these pictures and first gasped, then laughed, and then almost cried for her….but then had to laugh again. How could I not, there was a big black smiley face painted on the wall?? Oh.my.word.
