True Story Tuesday - Crashing Down



The other day, during Spring Break, I was upstairs scrubbing toilets (*cough*ok maybe I was laying down) and the kids were downstairs reading books (ok, maybe they were watching some cartoons). I had given them strict instructions to stay out of the kitchen and not to go anywhere near the pantry.

I heared an incredibley loud CRASH!

I knew glass was involved and I yelled "Don't Move!!!" in an attempt to keep injuries to a minimum.

I ran downstairs. All of the kids were standing in the family room with Scared to Death eyes.

I turned the corner in to the kitchen and found this:



I stood and stared at the mess for about 10 minutes trying to figure out where to start (and taking pictures). There was glass shattered across the entire kitchen. SOMEONE had used the pantry shelves as a ladder in an attempt to grab the forbidden box of cookies at the top. This is something we have caught all of our kiddos doing at one time or another and they KNOW they are not supposed to climb the shelves. Well, this time they got a big surprise. The shelf did not hold and the huge jars that were once filled with flour and sugar crashed to the ground. I'm not sure how they climbed down from the shelves AND dodged the jars at the same time!

Go visit Once Upon a Miracle to hear more true stories!

LOL @ {Kimber}'s comment. That was good. Glad to hear no one was hurt. Did anyone ever fess up to being the not-so-lucky monkey who did the climbing?

Emily said...

Kmama said...

Foursons said...

Uh oh! I bet they'll think twice before doing that again!

WOW! I would not even know where to start! did one of them say they did it? Adlie likes to play in our pantry she dumped flour on our floor a while a go and it was a PAIN to clean up!

Emmy said...

Wow, it really is amazing no one got hurt.

And well, at least you got to have a good blog post because of it :)

Brandi said...

Good gravy! Sounds like something mine would do. Hmmm... it wasn't Daisy, was it? HAHA! I'm so glad no one was hurt. That could have been so much worse than a big mess! :)

Lexie Loo & Dylan Too said...

I doubt they'll be doing that again! That had to scare the crap out of them. I'm glad nobody got hurt!

Kim said...

Sooo glad nobody got hurt. Someone was looking out for little climbers.

Rachel said...

Oh my goodness! I am just stunned that none of your little ones got hurt! I am so glad for that!

That's one of my huge fears - something like this would happen and I wouldn't hear it. (Umm... you already know from last week how I bled a river from a tiny cut at Target... I can only imagine that cleaning up THIS mess would have killed me from blood loss, LOL!)

Glad you have pictures. Now your kids will totally owe you and understand when THEY have kids!
