A first

While I was downstairs cooking and eating dinner on our play kitchen with Grant, Collin was upstairs in my room doing this:

This is the first time any of our boys have written on our walls. We're not surprised Collin was the first one to do this. Stinker.

He was remorseful and when I told him he needed to go to time-out, he said "kay" and went to his room. I'm thinking that Miles will need to go to time-out too since he was the one that left the pencil out!

Luckily it was pencil and not marker. Luckily Scotty found him and told him to stop before he did too much damage. And luckily all 3 boys thought it was great fun to help clean the walls.

I'm right there with you! My 22 month old has colored on just about every surface you can think of...walls, floors, furniture, the refrigerator, the dishwasher, the TV...ugh!! And it's like she has these secret stashes of crayons and chalk that she secretly whips out and uses to create her little masterpieces. Ah...but at least she doesn't fingerpaint with poop. I have plenty of other friends who have to deal with that mess!
