Learn from my mistakes

If you should find yourself in this situation, don't ever NEVER write words in paint for your 4-year-old to sound out as you're edging the ceilings and door frames. It may seem like a good idea. It may keep her entertained for long periods of time. You may even congratulate yourself on approaching the reading thing in an unorthodox manner. However...

When all the paint dries, and the light hits it just right, you may find that you can still read the word 'bum' faintly on the wall.

Oh yeah, the sheet rock is done. Looks good, eh?

I'm still giggling about this. I can only imagine the kinds of words I would have painted on our wall before this warning.

(Like the word verification: poused)

I also learned that mistake when we painted my room as a teenager. My brother wrote not nice words to me and they showed up in the light.

You don't know me, but I really enjoy reading your blog. My husband and I got a kick out of this post... I can totally see myself doing something like that, so thanks for the tip!
