...when I walked into my kitchen - my kitchen with white cabinets - and saw my two year old daughter holding this:
Thankfully for all involved, I must have found her right as she pulled the lid off. No permanent artwork was anywhere to be found.
This monster Sharpie was hidden away inside a drawer, but it called to her from inside that deep dark abyss and she found it.
Gotta watch this one. She's a tricky trickster.
JD when he was three destroyed two couches and a coffe table. The "marker monster", resides in every home the has young children. Consider yourself lucky you stopped her before someone got hurt.
Wow...I'm hyperventilating for you...good save, Mom!
Yeah, I don't think the Magic Eraser would have saved you that time.
You do know that it's gonna happen, don't you? Hopefully not with a magic marker, but one of those precious little people will leave their mark sometime soon on your gleaming new house, I suspect...
move that Sharpie even HIGHER!!!! :)
Lauryn's eldest uncle...when he was about 4 got one of those markers and along with a playmate 'painted' the babysitters house and themselves. We washed that boy for a month to get all that black off and were informed by the sitter..."Never bring him back here again!"
ok... so I had to LOL at the oldest Cliff son.... that's a great story... so at least it's a cliff thing... and not from her Mother!!!
that's an adorable picture of Lauren btw...
have a great weekend...
Couldn't resist leaving a comment on this one-just in case it happens again and you're not so lucky!
When my youngest was 3 she drew a beautiful picture of me with a Sharpie on my brand new coffee table. I "erased" it with Soft Scrub with bleach. It removed the black but kept the finish on the table. Also works on crayon creations on newly painted walls!
