A toddler decided to ‘copy Mr Tumble’ and decorate the living room carpet – with a tub of Sudocrem.
Mum Crazee Cardy, 21, had only turned her back briefly to wash the dishes but that was all it took for daughter Bleu-Lilly Re to get her hands on a tub.
The 18-month-old had been watching TV and decided to copy one of her favourite characters, Mr Tumble, when he started painting a picture.
Unfortunately for Crazee, Bleu-Lilly’s paint was the antiseptic cream and her canvas was the living room carpet of the property the family had only just moved into in Lincolnshire.
She said: ‘The Sudocrem was actually on the bookshelf, it’s not too high but high enough so she couldn’t reach – so I thought!
‘She was watching a Mr. Tumble episode where he’s painting a picture and gets paint all over his hands so wipes them on paper to clean them and creates a picture like that.’
While Crazee was doing the dishes, she realised that the little one was being too quiet so turned around to check.
‘I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry, she was covered in it!’ said Crazee.
‘I took a photo to show the grandparents and her dad – they all found it highly amusing, but I suppose I would’ve too if I didn’t have to clean it!
‘I’ve been scrubbing with hot soapy water but it’s not shifting. Bleu-Lilly did try to help me too – she grabbed a packet of baby wipes, pulled loads out, and was wiping the floor.
‘She was laughing and saying “oooh” and “dirty” when I first saw what she had done. Later on, when her daddy came home, she pointed at it and said “who done that?”.
‘I’m going to keep going and if worst comes to worst, we will have to replace the carpet.’
After cleaning up her naughty toddler, Crazee turned to Facebook for helpful tips on rescuing the carpet.
However, Bleu-Lilly’s reign of terror was far from over as she went on to break open a Christmas decoration, scattering fake snow over the ruined carpet.
Crazee said: ‘You honestly couldn’t write it – she’s a little monkey.
‘She’s got a face full of mischief and a personality to match, that’s for sure.’
