So my wife's been away on business for two weeks. She comes home Saturday. I'm home with my boy Ian (11 months) the whole time and everything is basically been smooth... until an hour ago.
I mistakenly left the laundry room door ajar as I was upstairs putting Ian's laundry away. A couple minutes later I go down to check on him and he's a different color. I mean he's like grey/green and so is the carpet and so is the marble floor leading to the laundry area.
Dude snuck in there and tipped a quart of latex paint on the floor in my absence... tracked it a solid 15 feet over stone tile and carpet to the baby gate that kept him confined to the downstairs.
When I discovered him I just about flipped out. I really couldn't believe what I was seeing. I ran him to the tub and washed him clean - luckily he didn't appear to have injested any but merely crawled through it. The paint puddle was [email protected]
#%ing huge!!!! I wish I could have taken some photos but there was no time. I had to get that boy clean and try to get the carpet before the paint dried. My arms feel like rubber right now from the super-intense scrubbing.
I think I got it out of the carpet (mostly) and the stone tile. The laundry room is another story altogether. I'm gonna be a busy mofo tommorow trying to get the 6x4 foot paint trail cleaned off the floor.
I'm on to a Sam Adams Octoberfest for now. Time to calm back down! What a f$#%ing night. I'll laugh about this years from now!
EDIT - I shot some pics of the aftermath...I managed to clean the carpet and tile the best I could fow now. My wife is gonna lose it.
The culprit...(my fault of course!) Just hours before the big spill
