A Day of Spills

image found here
Spill count for the day: 4

1. Milk, spilled by Charlie, spill zone: table, floor, fabric covered chair

2. Sunny D, spilled by Me, spill zone: contained to countertop

3. Sunny D, spilled by Charlie, spill zone: my lap

4. Water, knocked over by curious baby Joseph, spill zone: bedroom floor/ carpet

It's been quite comical actually. I'm wondering what's next. Things I've learned from today....

1. My 2 year old should probably still be using cups with lids.

2. I might also need cups with lids.

3. Fabric covered kitchen table chairs in a house full of young boys is just asking for trouble.

4. It is possible to continue talking on the phone to my grandmother in a normal voice as ice cold Sunny D pours into my lap.

A question I have after today...

Does the cleanup that takes place after multiple spills count as mopping the kitchen floor?

P.S. - I haven't gotten a chance to comment on other blogs as much as I've wanted to lately. I haven't forgetten you & I'm still reading your blogs! I even have stuff I want to say to you. I'll get back to you as soon as I'm done wiping up spills.


  1. Thank you for making me laugh today Karen!So nice to see others having the same type of days!Blessings,Marla

  2. Oh.......had some of those days and still do. It really gets funny when the spilling is from your college kids!!
    Enjoy!! If you notice your feet sticking to the floor, well that is when you know it didn't count as mopping...LOL

  3. This made me laugh!!
    Sorry...spills are kind of funny when they aren't yours!:)
    Enjoy the night

  4. Karen, we've had quite a few spills ourselves. I've learned not to cry over spilt milk, juice, Powerade, soda, and water. They should probably make a sippy cup for all ages.

    Oh, I have the same P.S. that you do! I've been so busy that I've fallen behind on commenting on my favorite blogs, yours included. I can so relate to your last few posts. I'm guessing most of us feel that way, but don't have the courage to share it. Hang in there!

    I hope all is well with you and your sweet family.

    Much Love,

  5. Thanks for this!! It brought a smile to my face! I would never be able to blog about all the spills/messes that takes place in my house on a given day with 6 kids ... surely one of my bloggy friends would send in a detox crew if I did!

    Have a great day!
