Day 38 - Damage

Today's word gave me so many options, i could fill an entire book with examples of damage in this house. The kids alone are walking disaster zones and leave a trail of destruction behind them wherever they go. Then there is my own clumsiness that i could record and show you endless photos of things that i managed to break and damage by accident.. and my dh is not the most graceful of movers either and has a knack for knocking things off shelves, so all in all we have a rather good collection of damaged things. The boys favourite things to break are anything electrical, we have several xboxes and ps3s lying around the place, taken to bits because dh is "going to fix them real soon".. then there are all the computers and laptops that seem to be dropped off with us for some TLC and fixing. But, the thing that got to me the most last year was coping with the Cooper's teething and his innovative ways of relieving the pain of his big teeth coming through.. he literally ate the house and furniture. Luckily we seem to be through the worst of it now and at least the walls and structural parts of the house are safe again and we can start redecorating. The table and chairs are another story altogether! Here is an example of what a teething puppy, left unattended for 35 mintues, will do to skirting boards...
