Why even bother sometimes.

Look at the bright side (there's ALWAYS a bright side if you look for it), at least the kids share and get along! You have no idea how many kids would have snarfed that candy down and teased the other while he/she did it!

This is why I own a Bissell Carpet Cleaner:

;-D

Although, like you less than 10 minutes after I get done using it there are stains all over the carpet :-#

I did the same thing once. Brand spanking new carpet installed, and I walked into the house with a Route 44 Dr. Pepper from Sonic. I was kind of holding it by the lid, well not completely, but the lid popped off and made me lose my grip and it spilled into the carpet.

In my defense, I got that stain up and the next day you couldn't even tell it had happened. I thought my wife (at the time) was gonna kill me though.

Our carpets got stained and wore out by our kids in record time. So I removed and refinished the original hardwood underneath. Now we have nothing but wood or tile in the entire house. Of course now I worry about them falling off the bed onto the hardwood. :-o

I dumped 24 oz of coffee on my brand new car. The Rug Doctor has an upholstery attachment - worked wonders. ;-D

Not more than 2 hours after Chemdry left, in a matter of 7 unsupervised, very suspiciously silent minutes, my three year old son had pilfered 7 or 8 Hershey Kisses from the kitchen counter and taken them to the frontroom. In turn, sharing them with my even less discretionary one year old son.

There are now 4 big ass chocolate stains in the middle of the rug.


Oh man, been there and done that. Sorry Aww. :-/

I think mine is worse though :-o . When my boy was around 3 years old, I went into his room one morning to wake him up and get the day started, only to find a mountain in the center of his room and him asleep on part of it. The mountain consisted of a 5 pound bag of flour all dumped out of the package, a 24 count of cheese slices all out of the wrappers, a package of hot dogs all out of the wrapper as well, and red Kool-Aid. All of those things mashed up and squished together to make the mountain. Needless to say what I did the rest of the day, and managed to completely ruin a steam cleaner in the process. :-/

Jeez, Mad. That sounds like it would have caused a little stress. :-b

Was it at least your steam cleaner or did you have to pay to replace that too? :-P

Man, we just got our carpets cleaned today...Hope you all didn't jinx us!! :-o

You think? X-I Lol. :-b

Actually it was my in-laws steam cleaner. It just up and died while I was trying to clean everything up, so I took that sucker completely apart, cleaned it all up real nice, and put it back together. No go. Just dead. Totally dead. I did get lucky though, they were going to buy a new one anyway, so I didn't wind up having to buy them a new one. :-°

He's almost 8 now, and doesn't do stuff like that anymore. He just snitches candy or cookies out of the kitchen when he thinks he can get away with it (and he actually eats them instead of making mountains now! :-b ).
