Charlie, Charlie, Charlie....what a week we had. So, my friend posted a while ago about her daughter doing something similar in her house on her walls. I took it as my warning to put all the markers and such out of reach. I just forgot about that one eensy weensy blue sharpie that I leave in the kitchen junk drawer. Not pictured is the rest of the artwork on the tile and the dishwasher. Where was I, you ask? Well, I was right here in the family room. I could hear Charlie playing in the kitchen but knew the chemicals were locked up, and the knives out of reach -so I just listened as he "played." I immediately sprang up when I heard the words "Mommy, color." It was too late.
Also of note - Charlie flushed a large plastic lego wheel down the toilet that week too. That was a $69 plumber bill which I will make him pay for when he is older. :) And, he dumped out probably half the box of laundry detergent on Friday too. He has been learning the word "naughty." I don't think it has sunk in yet.
But, within all that, we still love him to pieces. I just want this to be recorded for him to read when he is older. Maybe by then I'll be laughing this off. For now, I just can't believe there is another one coming.
