Balancing Act

My kids are pretty creative, if I do say so myself. Well, if you want to get technical, Addison is creative and Samantha is obedient, but you get the point. And it’s a fine line to walk when you want to give them the freedom to explore their creative side while still maintaining the stain free appearance of your carpet.

One day a few weeks ago I headed upstairs to put laundry away. The girls were watching Spongebob and appeared to be in a zombie-like state so I figured I was in the clear.

Of course I was wrong.

I heard Sam start crying and yelled, “Is Sam OK?” Addi yelled back, “YES! She’s crying because her leg is stuck in her pants,” and I made the executive decision that the laundry could wait.

When I got downstairs, I found both girls sans clothes. And covered in foamy hand soap from head to toe. Except of course for Sam’s leg, which was indeed stuck in her pants.

When I looked at Addi in disbelief for an explanation, it was simple. She and Sam were polar bears.

I think it might be time for some extracurricular activities.
