That is soooooooooooooooooooooo much worse than when matrixx's oldest covered his bedroom in baby powder. I wonder if she still has that pic somewhere...

That was almost too easy to find.

Oh my god, that's awesome! I think I just pulled something from laughter.

And look how gleeful he is! He's just as proud as the kids with the paint can!

But I'd almost have to say this was better since Grey was 2 or 3 when this happened, and that other kid looked about 6.

The kid with the paint may have been a little older than Grey, but I doubt he was any older than four or so. At six, he'd have been vindictive rather than just a happy, unassuming three year old.

See, as a child, I remember coloring on the fireplace once. My mother made me clean it with a toothbrush - and turned the TV on in a different room... just loud enough that I knew Seaseme Street was on, but not loud enough that I could understand it. So, not only did I have to clean up the mess I made, I did it while constantly being reminded of what I was missing because of my actions as well...

Mom was great at thoughtful punishments like that... enough that I only ever did that ONCE.

That... wow, I can't process the anger one would have to surpress. Because I seriously want to throttle those children. Again, my mom was terrific at saying "Go to your room while I think up a punishment" - which I later discovered was "go to your room while I calm down, because right now I want to throttle you"

But --- the Television. Holy shit the paint on the TV. And that is a nice flat screen TV too......

See. I now know where you got your devious twisted mind. I've seen you subject many your players to something that...thoughtfully evil.

Your mom is a genius.

Those kids would totally be killed if they were mine. I would eat them!

It's not the kids' fault. Their parents should have put the paint up where they couldn't reach it/watched them more closely.

I know that I would suck at parenting, so I never want to do it. :< I'm just not that vigilant.

You know for the rest of that kid's life, I'd have that paint covered TV in his room. I'd give him DVDs, games, the works. Covered in paint. Hell, he can have the paint-couch, too.

This is why my classroom has lots of shelves.
