WHY does this child of mine INSIST on coloring everything except for what he is suppose to?
Noah never did this, he always colored on paper or whatever I gave him. He never once colored on a wall or his clothes or the table. Eli on the other hand, colors on whatever he think needs some sprucing up I guess. No matter how mad I get and no matter how many time outs he gets, he just could care less what I have to say. This has been an ongoing battle for a while now, I just am SOOOOO over it. He is ruining everything! When ever I get stuff out for them to color with at the table, I guess he secretly stashes some crayons and markers away everytime because I dont know where he finds all this stuff. Here are a few examples of some of the destruction that has happened in the last little while.
Chalk on the coffee table ( not a big deal, washed right off)
Pen on the back of the barstool ( i have tried everything to get this pen off the chair, it's ruined)
Peramant Marker on the wall ( this I have to paint over)
Marker on the heat vent. ( Doesnt come off, I have to replace it)
crayon on the door ( have not tried to clean it yet)
Crayon ALL over the slide attached to Noahs bed. (This luckily came off)
Crayon on his bedroom wall (have not cleaned this one up yet, (hopefully a magic eraser will work!)
That is not all, he has also colored and ruined bed sheets, clothes, blankets, toys, oh yes and we cant forget himself, he is alwyays coloring on himself.
Eli is ALWAYS keeping me on my toes. I guess we will just say he has a "Free Spirit" =)
