You know it's going to be one of those weeks . . .

when, after observing you try to check out with your children, the woman in line behind you at Wal-mart pats you on the shoulder and says, "Honey, you need to go home and just have a nap. And if you can't have a nap, then have a drink!"

And as we end this delightful week, I need to ask - does anyone have any ideas on how to get crayon out of the living room carpet?

Umn, if it's not the plasticky El Cheapo kind of fibers I'd put a paper bag over the crayons and a warm iron over it. That's always worked to get crayons off of other surfaces for me (melts the wax and it sticks/gets absorbed in the paper). And hey, no matter WHAT you/your kids were doing at walmart it's nothing that hasn't been done and topped before:

I'd try the iron too.

Now how do you get peanut butter off of/out of your couch?

Just get a dog/toddler to lick it off.

I'll rent out DS2. He licks EVERYTHING. I'm sure he'll have the PB off in about 10 minutes flat. Spike it with jelly and you might get down to 5 minutes.
