Toddlers cause paint ‘tsunami’ after being left alone for just five minutes

The calm after the storm in the kitchen

Two toddlers unleashed what can only be described a tsunami of paint, covering the entire kitchen and drenching themselves in the process, when their mum briefly went to use the toilet.

Mum Hayley Kidd had been giving the kitchen a revamp on April 18 while Bonnie, four, and Harry, one, played outside in the garden.

The 27-year-old nipped upstairs to use the toilet while the children were occupied but when she returned less than five minutes later, the two youngsters had smeared a tub of white paint all over themselves and the entire kitchen including the floor, cupboards and surfaces.

Hayley explained that she had left the paint on the kitchen side but Bonnie had climbed onto the surface and used a ladle to throw paint around the room and at her younger brother.

A hilarious photo captures the tots caught in the act, with Bonnie crouched over the exploded bucket, both dripping in white paint that also covers every surface and has left the floor a sea of ​​white.

The escape is estimated to have cost Hayley £500 at a minimum as she says she needs to replace the oven, air fryer, microwave and even plug sockets, which have been faulty since their encounter with the paint.

Hayley, from Knaresborough, North Yorkshire, said: “It’s quite possibly the worst day of my life but it was funny and it’s done now. There’s always something in our house.

“I started painting my kitchen and the children were playing outside in the garden. While they were playing, I thought I’d run upstairs for a wee so I went to the toilet then I spotted a pile of washing on the stairs so I picked that up and put it on my bed.

“I can’t describe how quickly it happened. It was less than five minutes. I came down and I was faced with that.

“I had no words, there was a moment of pause and silence while I took it in. Bonnie had pulled a ladle out of the drawer and was swinging it around and throwing it to the other side of the room at my other child which is why he was covered in it.

But Harry was not innocent in this kitchen sink drama

“They saw my presence and were like ‘oh no, we’re in trouble’. I just asked them what they’d done and she said she was sorry.

“I try to do gentle parenting so I took a big breath. Bonnie asked if I was mad and I just said I wasn’t happy with them but it’s done now.”

The nursery teacher rushed the children upstairs for a shower before using cereal boxes to scrape the paint away and she ended up spending 12 hours trying to clean up the mess.

Although she managed to salvage most of the kitchen, Hayley will need to replace the microwave, oven and air fryer, which are all too damaged by the paint.
