Toddler 'rite of passage? '


The writing was on the wall...literally. Thankfully only with a pencil and only a few small/medium sized lines. Thankfully we have Magic Erasers for such an occasion. Thankfully we have a time-out chair with promises of a spanking if this behavior continues for such an occasion. Thankfully he's a smart boy and this hasn't happened since.

It has happened here - by both girls now.

Side note: I read an article somewhere (don't remember where now) the magic erasers can burn kids hands even though they don't do that to us. I read it after Norah had already used one once - just thought you might want to know.

Okay, so I've totally decided you need to start a new blog...Chasing Elliot! The subtitle could be, "A boy's version of Montessori inspired activites." A huge smile spread across my face just now when I pictured what our boys would do with the latest Paper Bag Water Painting. :) You could give us all some great comic relief with your, "What it's supposed to look like" and the reality check a boy brings to the picture. Ha, ha.

at least it's cleanable... not with permanant marker... it could always be worse, couldn't it?
