Does this happen at your house????

Quinn has some lactose issues, so one of the many things we switched  for him was ice cream to fruit sorbet.  And really, who doesn't like to say "sorbet" better than ice cream?  It makes me feel fancy.  But really, that's besides the point.

The point being that I stocked up on it a few weeks ago when it was on sale at the grocery store and the other night, while Q and I were home alone, I offered up a fruit sorbet dessert and this is what I found...



Do you see this nonsense????  There is not even a whole scoop left out of either of them!  Ridiculous.  It is Chandler.  This is what she does.  Ugh.

And then, completely separate from the fruit sorbet craziness, Quinn decided to do this last week...


Do you see that Q U???  That is crayola shimmer crayon ON MY CARPET!!!  And I can't get it out.  The picture was taken immediately after it happened...when I posted to facebook for thoughts on the situation.  I then tried a smidge of Spot Shot (did nothing) then tried a smidge of OxyClean (did nothing) and then tried our bissell cleaner (nada).  Big sigh.

We have lived in this house for a little over four years and our carpets were atrocious.  So we broke down and had them professionally cleaned 2 weeks ago.  And then the kid does this.  Big, big sigh.

I keep meaning to call the carpet company again, but time keeps getting away from me.

Quinn and I had this conversation about it...

Me:  Why would you do something like that?
Q:  I didn't know it wasn't a good idea.
Me:  And now?
Q:  Now I know it is NOT a good idea.

At least there was a lesson learned.  Although I'm sure how he missed writing on the carpet being a bad idea.

Do these things happen at your house?  Please tell me that I am not alone.

the ice cream thing is my husband ALL over the place!

he eats all but the last little bit, puts it back in the freezer, and when i get up to get my own...just about a bite left.

ARGH.

Having a boy, I'm sure I will experience something like that once in my life.
