Blue Permanent Marker

Do I really need to say more?

What happens when a toddler gets ahold of a dark blue permanent marker? Somethin's about to go down. And in our case, it was

The tile
The carpet
The wall
The rug
A picture of Christ
Toddler's arms and legs
A pair of Guess shorts
A Guess Shirt
a stool
the kitchen counter
a Barbie
the kitchen table

Not to mention the bottle of hairspray used to clean it up, and the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser that pitched in as well. And of course, Jaxon couldn't be more proud. Good morning to Mom :)

LOL i totally simpathise with you, Grace did that a few weeks ago, I really could not get to mad at her though as tobyn was the one who gave her the marker to color on her paper with, he then left her for a sec to go and answer the door and whilst he was gone, well she got it on the wall the table her clothes her own self of course and a few other places as well, i am still finding spots here and there which she decided to decorate!!

*sigh* I've been there, not fun. I know you are supposed to love your kids no matter what but some days.....How did you get it out of the carpet?

Brittany said...

Been there! A couple of times actually (must have not learned my lesson about getting it out of his reach)...the second time was on my parent's leather couch!!! They had to re-cover it! LOL I can't believe you got it all out! Where are the pics you took of the "incident"? ;)

We have had MANY incidents with markers. Kamden has her own art wall down the hall that has wonderful drawings that I can't get off!
