Marker Girl

Here's my layout for the day. Wink

Natalie is grounded from markers for at least a month. When I set out the paper for her to color, I told her crayons only. She wanted markers. I said fine, as long as she didn't color on herself. I sat down to drink my coffee and read my email. A while later I hear her RUN to the bathroom and shut the door. I got up to see what was happening. I opened the door, took a look, signed, walked back here to my desk to grab my camera and got this shot. I didn't take the markers immediately away, stupid me, I told her to put them away. While I went to get baby wipes to clean her, she colored on her eyelids.
August 2008

And here's the paper by itself, just perfect for this layout IMO

For the record, she's STILL on marker time out. I gave her another chance last week and she colored all over her feet!

What's funny is that I did one of Jordan at about the same age. I don't have a photo with the journaling or date, and the album is upstairs and I can't easily get a fresh picture of it. But how funny is this? (I did this layout May 07)

Tessa looks this way daily!!!

But it was crayon on my walls, pen on of sofa or washerable markers on her (and everything else) I let her have only markers now since they come off with water. But she does get them taken from her for the rest of the day if she writes on anything but paper and has to clean up her mess. But still this has not stopped her. Oh well I pick my battles and now that they make washable markers this is not one with a sick child I care to fight out with her daily.

How funny! I love the paper!! I have been lucky that so far Xavier is really good about just drawing on his paper with his markers. He has drawn on the lid to his lap desk as well. He has in the past drawn on the wall with pencil. But that was many months ago. Before we got him his lap desk with his own markers, crayons, and paper.
