Fingerprints now Gone

While dusting and cleaning this morning, I decided to clean the Television screen with the special duster cloth that they supplied, however it gave me NO JOY to clean the fingerprints of my grandsons off. I have been keeping a close eye on daily, wishing there were here more often to totally fingerprint my house. I dont think I had that same sentiment with my own children, I must be mellowing out. They are my JOY!

Modern television screens are far more prone to such blemishes than the old CRT was. I still find it strange that touch screen laptops exist because it was always taboo to touch the screen.

well if the children see a monkey on the screen they try touch, sometimes they just get a finger to it before their dad curbs their enthusiasm, but we dont mind.

@Inlemay That cannot be avoided with children around.

@Inlemay I have them on sliding doors too. They must have been there for months as it is ages since we had small children here.

Absence makes the heart grow fonder. When they're around, they'll get in your hair but when they're gone, you'll miss them terribly, eh? My grandson lives with me so I only miss him when he's asleep. But when he's up and touching everything, how I wish he's asleep. Haha.

ha ha I understand completely - tomorrow I get to have them around and there will be no cleaning while they are around. We are blessed.

My television is too high for them to reach....but my curio cabinet gets smeared with finger prints and nose prints. You're right, I think we become more tolerant of them when they are made by our grandchildren,

I dont get to see my JOY's that often, but when I do, they take all of me and can have all of me

That is because you can spoil your grandchildren. Have lots of fun with them and when they go home you miss them.
