picture me {im}perfectly.art gone bad

so i had this {great} idea
to paint on our glass dining room table.
actually paint on it.
and not on paper.


it was awesome for like a second.
but then the bigs poured extra paint
and L started to eat it
and then it was just a ginormous mess
that i had asked for.
oh goodness.


so then i lost my patience
and told everyone to freeze
and tried to get the paint out of L’s happy mouth
and get the quickly drying paint all wiped up
and blah blah blah
it was not pretty.
(well, maybe the paint was pretty
but it wasn’t there long enough
for anyone to notice.)





and then while i was huffing and puffing
and cleaning up the mess,
little miss K drew a picture.
of me.
and it wasn’t pretty either.



oh my goodness.
i do believe i looked that awful
while huffing and puffing.
see, things aren’t always dreamy around here.
