This exasperated mum showed the carnage of her house covered in blue paint by kids after she had left them alone for just 10 minutes.
Charlotte Wilson had only momentarily popped out of her home in Richmond-upon-Thames, London, to fill a paddling pool for the children aged one, two and three.
When she came back inside, Charlotte was greeted with the walls and door of her bedroom smeared in blue paint.
The stunned mum then turned around to show even more stains on the carpet in her nursery and handprints trailing all the way down the staircase.
Charlotte said: “To say I was shocked when I saw the mess is an understatement.
“I couldn’t believe how much mess they had made in just 10 minutes.
“It took me a day to clean up all the mess and get the house back to normal.
“After a couple of days, the anger subsided and I started to find the whole situation funny.”
