Here is a funny about "Their" Jeep. It started out as a Barbie Pink Jeep. The last owner painted it Camo green. I had the grandsons convinced that I had to make it pink again to run. LOL

The youngest threw a fit and then told me to get it running. THEY would paint it with Grandpa' spray paint. I asked him how he knew to use spray paint. He let the cat out of the bag. He said he had "fixed" his Mom's car when she scratched it.

He told on himself. LOL She was hit in the parking lot at Walmart last fall. It put a big scratch down the passengers side. Then several days later the passenger side was spray painted BLACK. She has a light blue car. They thought someone was messing with her. Turns out it was a home grown "fix". I think I will keep that fact away from her for a while longer. She was PO about the paint. The younger grandson was only 4 at that time. He never showed up with any paint on himself. I asked him about that. He told me he had watched his Dad paint something. He had cleaned up with brake clean. The grandson said he did the same thing. LOL

Shows you they "watch" what you do closer than you think.

I think I will move my spray paint into that cabinet that has a lock on the door.

A mother, sent her husband into the bathroom to check on their young boy. The boy had found a hole in the wall, and was making it bigger so that he could see what was on the inside of the wall. So Dad helped him make it big enough to satisfy his curiosity and then they both got to fix it together.
That is a good Dad, don't you think ?

Kids are incredible, one thing I admire the most is their resilience, in this case he certainly took some initiative, probably wanted to help and fix the car, was confident because the experience with his dad, learning unintentionally how a spray can works, how to clean up, I have to wonder, were there any runs LOL ! Thats almost priceless, I cannot imagine either of your reactions had you seen him do it, I'd want to be angry, but something like that, I'd have wanted to ask him about it nicely, and listen to what he says, then figure a good way to tell him his intentions were good, has heart of gold, but there probably is a better way to repair LOL !

It reminds me of being not much older, 5 or 6, and I was home ill, not in school, no one home either. I wanted some chocolate chip cookies, well I wanted to surprise mom more than I wanted the cookies, I had watched or helped bake them before, but had recently just learned to read. Don't you know I made the darned things, followed the recipe, knew how to set the stove, and they came out pretty good 'cept one minor problem, I missed one thing on the recipe, amount of salt I misread or mis-understood, just a tad too much, I was close but just enough that you could taste it a littlem they were still good, soft and all that. To this day, I cannot grasp how I was able to do it, never got punished, I mean how do you punish a kid for having a good heart, LOL ! Most of my life followed suit, the parental units were really not around that much for me, if you wanted something, you did it yourself. I would have been a lot smarter then if they were around, and though a late bloomer, having to figure things out on my own, I still look back and realize how seemingly unintelligent(dummy) I was with some things, things my parents never participated in or things I did not do with them mostly. I drove a tractor at a young age but was clueless on other things kids learned throughout their youth.

What you are doing with your dedication to family and especially the younger members, like the children, teens, is priceless, which I am positive you don't need to be told, I say it to reiterate and in admiration of those who go the extra mile for their kids and help them along the path that leads to success regardless of what they do. I learned a lot from my parents, mostly about what NOT to do LOL !! I laugh now after all these years, thankful for how ever I made it so far without too much trouble, could have been a lot worse LOL !

JD, you're a pill! I can just see you tormenting those little guys telling them "the only way this will run is if I paint it pink like it was". 'And then the little one throws a fit...........just what you wanted!! That's some funny stuff!

Good plan on locking up the spray paint! When my son(who's 18 now but still makes messes) was about 5, he decided one day that the little blue plastic trays his hotwheels cars went in would look better if they were black.

He found a can of my black spray paint and proceeded to do a good job painting those trays...on the floor of our enclosed back porch, naturally with no paper underneath.

That done, he then practiced his writing skills by painting his name in large black letters on the white door that went into the kitchen...spelled it right too, and it's still on the door.....

Oh, and also, our big yellow dog, who was in the porch with him "helping", wound up with a nice covering of black "leopard spots"....those took awhile to wear off.
