it was bound to happen
Artwork on the wall.
Yesterday while I was in the kitchen putting together dinner casseroles Rachel and Eli were in the playroom coloring at the picnic table. Rachel comes out, says, “Mommy, I need a paper towel”. I ask “why”? She responds, “to clean up my mess”. Sweet child had decided the coloring book was a little too limiting, and expanded her artistic vision to encompass the wall next to the table.
At least she knew she made a mistake right after it happened!
I didn’t yell. Nope, sure didn’t. We just had a talk about how we do NOT color on the walls with our crayons.
My sister said Mr. Clean Magic Eraser works wonders for that sort of thing. I need to go get one. Even though they are “washable” crayons, trying to wash it off of a textured wall just produces a sort of smeary mess. Hopefully Mr. Clean will do the trick. Until then, I’m just enjoying the art.
