Messy, Messy!

I already mentioned how one or maybe both of the kids had a hand in mucking up the works on our DVD player. But have I ever told you about the problems we have here with windows?

No, not the Windows of the computer variety -although, I probably should thank my lucky stars that neither of them has managed to do anything bad to my poor little computer or the keyboard. Well, at least not yet anyway.

These two really have a flair for redecorating. Unfortunately, I guess neither Mandy nor I are very appreciative of their efforts though. Especially where the glass in the storm door and also, those big windows in the bow window in the living room are concerned.

They seem to love to find the nastiest stuff possible -from chocolate to things they may have had dripping from their noses -and got a little on their hands to smear all over those windows. You know, the ones that are of a front house view too for all the world to see. Of course, what else?

Then, they seem to glow even more noticeably at night, when the lighting in the living room is turned on too!

Lovely, just lovely. Especially so when Mandy just managed to get them all washed off less than twenty-four hours ago too!

Same here..muddy paws on one side and food gunk on the other.

Rubbing alcohol on a soft cloth works well on removing the nasties.

the best time to get something messy is right after it was cleaned.

Don't they just love to mess up everything! The little darlings!

I believe it was years before my patio door managed to stay clean for more than 24 hours at a time.

I have no kids and no pets but mine still get messy but not with nose drippings at least. This time of year the sun is just at the right level to show up every mark.

Mia left me a giant hairball in my slippers this morning! Does that count as messy ;)

Stopped by to say Happy Mother's Day

We learned to live with dirty windows. It's in the parents survival manual. Rule 14. What you can't stop or fix-IGNORE.

I understand where you are coming from. Between dog licks and grandchildren my French doors always need cleaned. I have limited to cleaning them once a day. Years ago I remember a grandmother telling me that she loved her grandchildren to leave marks on her windows. She said that she thought of them every time she looked at her less than clean windows.

Well, it could be worse, I suppose. They could be smearing that gunk of your face. All in all, though, I guess you have to look at it the same way Sweetie does.

They should have a great future as interior decorators!

PS Thank you for the comment! Blow things up in size and you can see a lot. Here is another macro of a flower that I just posted on a Norwegian members-only site. You can view it, but you can't comment.
