Bad idea: Giving Aidan my drink cup, with only ice in it, to play with at the movie. He took the lid off, dumped the ice all over the floor, then sat down to play with it.
Good idea: Going boating up at the lake for the day.
Bad idea: Going boating up at the lake when you are 34 weeks pregnant, with a heat index of 110!
Good idea: Painting the backs of the bookshelves in the living room, for a nice "pop" of color.
Bad idea: Not realizing that the backs are not real wood, or even particle board and spending over 3 hours painting them, only to have ALL of the paint peel off as soon as it is dry.
Good idea: Having white slipcovered furniture in my living room. (easy to clean!)
Bad idea: Letting my boys eat chocolate chex mix on my furniture right after I had changed the slipcovers!
Good idea: Having my kiddos close together.
Bad idea: Having my kiddos close together! (Two under two anyone??)
Have you had any good ideas lately that didn't quite work out?!
