A worn-out mother has jokingly dubbed her children the ‘Kray twins’ and threatened to put them on eBay after catching them licking spilt milk off the floor alongside the family dogs.
Kylie Cain, 28, said she didn’t know ‘whether to laugh or cry’ when she saw her little girls Myla, two, and April-Rose, one, lying next to their pooch partners in crime Molly, eight, and Buster, four, drinking milk off the ground.
Imagine walking into your kitchen and seeing this:
It was a proper team effort for the two girls and their canine companions, with Myla climbing on top of Buster so she could open the fridge and then fling the milk across the floor.
Kylie said: “Before I knew it the milk was all over the floor and the girls had decided that licking it up was the best next step.”
“It’s definitely not something you see every day. It’s one of those mum moments where you don’t know whether to laugh or cry but in the end I decided it was way too funny not to capture it.”
She posted the snap of their clean-up operation onto Facebook with the caption: “I am reluctant to have to get rid but I have no choice – they’re such hard work.”
“They tag-team each other all the time and they’re eating me out of my own home, in fact.”
“They all take it in turns to do something they shouldn’t on a daily basis, like a game of Chinese whispers.”
In a joking reference to her mischievous daughters, she adds: “If you can be the perfect people for the two poodles on the right, message me. I’m offering them to a good home. Can you sell kids on eBay?”
But this isn’t the first time Kylie has had to cope with the carnage created by her mischievous little girls who she describes as inseparable.
Myla and April-Rose love nothing more than to run riot through the house, drawing on each other, and covering themselves and their mother’s room in baby powder – always accompanied by Staffies Molly and Buster.
