Two adorable toddlers were caught drenching themselves and covering the entire kitchen in white paint while their mother went upstairs to pee.
27-year-old Hayley Kidd from Knaresborough, North Yorkshire, had been giving her kitchen a revamp while her kids Bonnie, 4, and Harry, 1, were playing in the garden.
But when she needed to pee, she made sure that her kids were still occupied before going upstairs to use the toilet.
Only a few minutes later, her naughty children had already covered themselves and the entire kitchen in white paint!
Hayley said that the paint was on the kitchen top but her four-year-old climbed on the surface and thew paint all over the room using a ladle.
“It’s quite possibly the worst day of my life, but it was funny and it’s done now. There’s always something in our house,” Hayley said.
“I started painting my kitchen and the children were playing outside in the garden. While they were playing, I thought I’d run upstairs. So I went to the toilet, then I spotted a pile of washing on the stairs so I picked that up and put it on my bed,” she continued.
“I can’t describe how quickly it happened. It was less than five minutes. I came down and I was faced with that.
“I had no words, there was a moment of pause and silence while I took it in.
“Bonnie had pulled a ladle out of the drawer and was swinging it around and throwing it to the other side of the room at my other child which is why he was covered in it.”
“They saw my presence and were like ‘oh no, we’re in trouble’. I just asked them what they’d done and she said she was sorry,” the mother went on.
“I try to do gentle parenting so I took a big breath. Bonnie asked if I was mad and I just said I wasn’t happy with them but it’s done now.”
The mom took her children upstairs for a shower and ended up spending more than ten hours trying to clean up her kids’ mess.
“I showered them down which was a traumatic experience for them when I was trying to get the paint off,” she said.
“Harry doesn’t sleep without me so I had to lay there for one hour while the paint was drying and I just had to go down and my brother had already started cleaning for me.”
Hayley took to Facebook and shared a picture of her kids covered in paint. Her post has received over 3,000 likes and comments, with one person writing: “Hahaha. Oh Hayley. My god, children at their finest. Honestly you have the chill of a Saint. I’d have stuck both mine in the paint and binned the lot.”
Another said: “I think if my kids did this, I’d finally have to section myself. I can’t even begin to imagine what went through your head walking in to this. I’d probably scream the house down.”
