This Is The Last Thing A Family Selling A Home Wants To See

A Colorado woman was repainting part of her home in hopes of selling it, but her toddler had her own ideas about what to paint.

A tale as old as time: a family trying to sell their house, keeping it spick and span, repainting to boost its appeal. 

But little, white footprints on a hardwood floor probably aren't part of the selling appeal. Although toddler Anistyn probably thought otherwise. 

Anistyn's mother told Newsy's partners at KMGH her 2-year-old daughter submerged herself in a bucket of white paint they were using to paint their home.

"Her mom said that, you know, usually you wait until 2 to reach your terrible 2s; she said hers started six months ago," ABC anchor Amy Robach said.

"That's one of those you get so annoyed that you're laughing," ABC anchor George Stephanopoulos said.

Toddlers. Can't turn your back for a second. If you do, they might cover themselves in paint. 

Or spaghetti. Or mud. Or ... just about anything.

Anistyn's mom, Victoria Farmer, said she knew something might be awry when things seemed a little too quiet while she breastfed her son.

Never trust a quiet toddler. After she found the mess, Farmer asked her sister to help her put a washrag under Anistyn and carry her to the bathtub.

The paint washed off Anistyn — but the family is still trying to remove it from the floor.
