Pass The Torch Tuesday

This weeks link

My pass the torch this week is both of my kiddos who were so well behaved during our major emergency Wednesday Evening. The above pictures are my bedroom ceiling. The tenant who was living upstairs moved out & earlier had unhooked her washer & left the water supply lines on the floor. So 8:20 PM this is what was happening at my house! The Prince usually goes to bed at 8:30 but he stayed up (I was too busy to tuck him in, scrambling to find buckets, bowls, pans to catch the water, then to find where it was coming from).

When all was said & done I was only able to catch 2 gallons of water the rest went onto the bed & through the floor into the basement. It took 4 days for the bed to dry out & I am still doing the laundry.

The Prince & Princess played together, watched the rest of the movie we were watching before the rain came & for the most part stayed out of the way & didn't play in the mess. Bed time was only 1/2 an hour off & the Prince woke up early & got ready for school with no problems.

Oye! That's terrible! What troopers your kiddos were though. I'd be having some issues with the neglect that caused so much damage myself...

Thanks, it was a HUGE mess. We had to file a police report, that was a trip. The officer couldn't believe the damage she caused.
