A Thousand Words Thursday#16-It Has Begun

Cheaper Than Therapy

Photobucket

I'm not sure if you can see in this picture, but that is lip liner on my floor! My 17 month old decided it would be fun to draw mommy a pretty picture on the floor! I caught it before he did too much and was able to clean it up, but kept thinking what if he did this on the carpet!

So I guess I'm in for it now! This is the first time he's drawn on anything other than paper or himself! And all I can think is THANK GOODNESS it wasn't my carpet! AHH..the joys of having kids!

I've been there but the canvas was my couch, my white couch. In my estimation, you came out pretty well.

Looks like a good color, at least it will come off the floor easily.

Here's my Thousand Word Thursday post

LOL, Allie did the wall with colored pencils a few months back. Ever since then, I hide all the coloring items. Lucky, that stuff comes off pretty easy.

Oh my.... it could have been worse - like SHARPIE marker worse..

Nice pic!

The Mom said...

Good think it wasn't a black permanent marker! Or on a white wall!

Patrice said...

Lol it's the thought that counts right!? He just wanted to draw you a picture and paper just wouldn't cut it this time! Hehe

CaseyDeuce said...

Ugh, when my daughter was 2 she got ahold of a sharpie, my limited edition coach purse and her own face... that was fun. Be thankful its only lipliner and that you can put an end to it before it becomes sharpie!!

Faith said...

Oh no! At least it was the floor and not the furniture!

Betsy said...

LOL! I have to say been there!! My dd's first was on the floor of the kitchen and the friggie!

Jennifer said...

A long, long time ago, mine drew me a lovely picture on their bedroom wall.

Lori @ The Downs Gang said...

Glad you could clean it up. Looks like he picked out a nice shade of lip liner too! :P

BluRayn said...

Oh my, yes, I remember that from when my boys were younger. Oh wait, what am I saying? My 6 yr old STILL draws all over everything! Arrghh! We went with all washable crayons/markers for awhile and that helped, some, and the Miracle Eraser worked great on stuff too. But ya, when they get a hold of the Sharpies that you just KNOW are safely put away, well, you're really in trouble!!

Oooooh. Been there, done that. All I can say is treasure the memories because those little ones will be gone before you know it and you'll be wishing you had some marks on your floor again! Have a great weekend!

Sarah said...

I'm visiting from A Thousand Words Thursday. This is my first time to participate.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who has an artistic toddler! LOL!

Got to love the Magic Eraser sponges!!

The Frugal Angel-Guided Psychic said...

Looks like you have a little artist on your hands :) At least it wasn't permanent marker... yet LOL!

Evolving Mommy Catherine said...

Oh, man. Monkey like to try and put my make up on her face, especially eyeliner. She just ends up with brown all over her face... at least she has left the floors and walls alone...so far ;)

NateAndJakesMom said...

I am not sure what I would be more upset about. Using my make up as a writing tool or the floor! :)

Casual Friday Everyday said...

You should see my walls. I'm embarrassed.
