WHY?

was i dumb enough to leave a permanent marker within a 2 year olds reach? At least i had a few magic erasers on hand. I got the marker off of the TV and book shelf. As for the bean bag, kid table and slide...well.... it will always hold a faint black scribble to remind me of the joys of motherhood.

Oh yes, the joys of motherhood! I know this sounds crazy but try Pampers Baby Wipes....it worked for me when I had perm. marker on my couches and kitchen table! I don't know what they have in them, but those wipies are something magical! You can also try clorox cleanup. Let me know if it works for you! ~Julie

that is amazing, I mean you told me he did that but. . .I think that took considerable effort and a pretty long attention span. Why don't you just cover your life in paper?

Thank goodness for Magic Erasers!! What a little stinker. He really did a number on all that. I bet the TV was the worst. Good thing he's cute!

Every time I get in the shower, every time, and I mean it. I go through a mental check list of what is out that the kids can get into. I have heard too many horror stories like this one. Toothpaste all over the couch, marker on the leather sofa, siblings with much shorter hair than they use to have, food coloring all over the house, sugar and flour spread throughout the kitchen. The list could go on and on. Someday however I know that regardless of what I do something is bound to happen it is just a matter of time. It is like waiting for the big earthquake it hit, you know it is coming you just don't know when. Consider yourself lucky, maybe now you can let your guard down and consider the worst behind you.

Well he really went to town there now didn't he? Thank heavens for the magic eraser, too bad it doesn't quite work on the plastic furniture type stuff.
