I Should Have Known

I sent her to take a nap. I told her she could sleep in my room. All was quiet.

I should have known.

Imagine me pulling back the covers to reveal THIS:

Ahhhh! *Shriek of horror*
And... is that... is that a boobie?

Ok, the bottom of your foot, really?

Isn't it amazing how she can stay perfectly mark-free when she plays with her kids washable markers, but Sharpies must be applied to as many square inches of skin as possible?

O dear! How sweet too! I think she's an artist. Years from now, you'll remember this with fondness, not horror as you probably feel now. :)

we have childhood photos of us covered in marker- I do fear the quiet though.

My son did this when he was little in our hall way. He was so proud of his work and told us it was a helicopter. Unfortunately he had got his hands on a permanent marker. It took several coats of various paints to cover and to be honest some of it you can still see faintly......bless them!!

hahahaha! Kids are great aren't they! You always know it's trouble when it's quiet!

Ah, bless her little heart.

Haha, my kids have both done that. Gracie even took it one step further by cutting up my sheets (and her eyelashes) with kid scissors, after drawing all over them.

I was once grounded from anything that made a mark. What did I do then? I took a nickel and "wrote" on the new wallpaper.

But Mommy, I didn't use a crayon, pen, or marker! :)
