Family FotoFun Friday Challenge #34

This week's photo challenge is "Messy!". Want to play? Here are the very simple rules.
For example, today, I gave my little monkey girls a slice of cheese. I figured they'd be enthuastic about this snack choice since they always open their toasted cheese sandwiches like Oreo cookies and nibble the cheese out. I thought I'd just save them the trouble.
The result: They squeezed it between their fingers like play dough!
Did they managed to swallow any of it?
On any given day, you can probably find at least one mauled toast slice (that's been stripped of all its cheesy goodness) in some stage of petrification under a car seat.
Every few days, I use a whisk broom to sweep out all of the crumbs onto our driveway (or a random parking lot) and I'm starting to notice that flocks of birds are following my van like sharks follow fishing boats that toss chum behind them as they return to dock with their daily catch. I'm probably interfering with migration patterns.
We ate "mackie cheese" for lunch a few days ago and I actually had to carry their table into the kitchen and hose it off over the sink!
But nothing is more abusive than the way they eat chocolate. Just look at all that yummy stuff they wasted by smearing it all over their face! (Okay, I'm guilty too but I was only one year old and I'm sure I've never wasted even an ounce of chocolate in any form since then!)
Even washing up is messy in our house since there's soap to squirt and water to splash and shirts to soak and towels to toss on the floor. And that's WITH my supervision! We keep a baby gate across the bathroom door to prevent them from attempting to "clean up" on their own.
