One lovely Saturday night, Ninja & I were going through the normal nighttime routine-bath, jammies, brush teeth, potty, etc. When he was done I sent him to his room to pick out a book to read.
Of course he didn't do that.
God forbid I should use the bathroom. It takes what, a minute, to pee & wash your hands? Unfortunately for me, a minute in Ninjaland is 30 mins in the real world, because by the time I came out of the bathroom he sure as heck wasn't in his room.
He was in the kitchen...painting his nails (and my kitchen floor) with dark red, xtreme wear/quick dry (of course) nail polish. I lost an entire bottle of nail polish remover that night (and 11 days later, there's STILL nail polish on some of his toes-kudos to Sally Hansen xtreme wear nail polish).
At least he sat on the tile floor to do his handiwork, unlike last time.
