The Coloring Incident

by Carrie with Children with 5 comments

Apparently Maggie jumped online during naptime today and read the blog post about my furniture.  Late today, things got eerily quiet while I was feeding baby Molly.  Every few minutes she would run through the room and say hello and that was all I heard of her…for awhile.  I went to investigate and discovered this…

Yep, don’t let your eyes deceive you – she colored all over Molly’s closet doors.  Green, brown and red (which don’t match the room).  The label says they are washable crayons, but I still haven’t gotten the nerve to see for sure. 

And just in case she is reading my blog – here’s her ‘I’m sorry’ face for everyone to see. Enjoy and think of me as I’m scrubbing closet doors.
