If you follow me on Instagram you may have caught my excitement when my new Hoover MaxExtract 60 PressurePro carpet washer arrived. Originally I had wanted to really scrub our old basement playroom carpeting. That was, until we had major flooding in the area and our carpet was ruined. Now I’m thrilled to have something to clean it when it gets dirty so I can keep it looking like new for as long as possible!
To try it out, my husband went to town on our horrible dining room rug. I’ve been wanting to replace this rug for ages but I figured there wasn’t a point until our kids got a bit older and stopped spilling on it. Now that we just added a third child it will be even longer before it is replaced. We cleaned it before bed and in the morning I woke up to a fresh smelling rug that looked 10x better than it had before.
At the end of breakfast I hear a little voice sounding a bit guilt say, “Uh-oh. Mom, I think we need to clean the rug again.” And look down and see this.
Yep. Warren had spilled milk on the rug. Our still slightly damp because it was just cleaned rug. Some may cry at spilled milk but my only reaction was, “Are you serious? Really? Ugh.” as I proceeded to clean it up. He didn’t do it on purpose, even if he had the absolute worst timing. It is just part of being a parent. You have to learn to roll with the punches and find the humor in these things. (Or in my case see a blogging opportunity and snap a picture.)
My husband’s response? “This will give us an opportunity to try out the little cleaning head.”
Glad he can roll with it too!
Anything like this ever happen to you?
