A journal of life as it happens - recording the major milestones & little tidbits so I can scrapbook them later.
Still Catching Up...
I wish I could devote more time to blogging these days, but the best I can do is to post when I can.

He didn't admit it to begin with. We knew it had his name written all over it, even if he can't write his name yet. After a little prompting, he was almost proud to show us all of the other places he had colored. That is until he went to time out. As I sat on the floor cleaning the wall, he called "It's not fair!" I am pretty sure that he was referring to himself, but that was exactly what I was thinking as I spent my evening attempting to clean dry erase marker off of the textured wall paper. No, it did not come off, but it is lighter.

I am pleased that the marker doesn't show up much in the picture, but unfortunately it is still quite visible in person.
And, just in case you were worried that we were banning creative expression through markers, here is a picture from today with the Dandelion showing that he knows the proper use for washable markers:
I am a stay-at-home mother of two active kids (8 and 5.5). In between their playgroups & activities, I do my best to record memories of milestones and daily life with photographs and scrapbooks.
