Naughty boy!



It is a seriously good thing that the magic eraser was invented because tonight could have been explosive. I let Jackson color in the office while I went to give the baby a bath. Then I hear the sound of something being dragged along the wall, when Jackson walks in with a crayon. I asked him if he had drawn on the wall, and of course he says no. So I go and look, sure enough a line of crayon on my bedroom wall. I thought that was it until I walked out of my room and down the hall to see that it was everywhere, down the hall on both sides and on the office door. I was pretty upset, course I think I was just as mad at the fact that Stephen saw none of this since he was watching the suns game, while it was happening right behind him. Well Jackson had a lot of cleaning up to do. The things kids do.

Oh my! What a riot! My favorite thing about the story is that Stephen was oblivious! I would have been furious!

I still have a nice big "wall art from Maggie" in the hallway that I have yet to clean up. when I saw it I was just too tired to care but everytime Russell walks by he freaks out and says "did maggie color on the wall??!!" i'm like "ya like 5 months ago....remember I told you that last week when you saw it?" men....they don't listen

I like the new look of your blog Crystal! Yeah right you were giving the baby a bath - you were blog hopping!

Ditto to Shalae's comment. AND the "zoning out" runs in that Cummard family.
Jackson must be good at writing on other things, besides paper. Maybe it is his "CRAFT". I still haven't taken the MAGIC eraser to his drawing on Ellie's dresser.
He's gotta represent his name "ZILLA", so he doesn't loose it. It's a dang good thing he is as adorable as he is. I love him!

I think the "zoning out" runs in the man gender. Seriously it's almost not worth it to go to bunco anymore becuase when I get home the house is so trashed. Unless I have a real babysitter. Sad but true. My paden draws on anything and everything. She actually is kind of obssessed. She hides and draws- i found some behind a chair in the living room the other day, under my desk on the wall. under Kotter's crib. She gets really creative with the hiding spots. Thanks heavens for the magic eraser is all I have to say.

Gotta love 3 year olds! Addi did that with a red sharpie on my wall when she was about 3. Halleigh, who is 3, scribbles on my table with crayon ALL the time and doodles on my walls with pencils or pens, but nothing that the magic eraser can't take care of! For those who have a child that's almost 3...WATCH OUT and stock up on Magic Eraser! Sorry, Crystal...I can empathize with you!

That is a crack up. Haven has not used the wall for art yet, and I mean YET. She would rather eat her crayons and chalk right now. Of course Stephen did not see him doing it. When men get into shows/sport they are worthless for helping out. haha

I absolutely ADORE the magic eraser. The first time I used it on a large Sharpee marker art project on my bedroom door (nice, right?) all Justin could say was that there was no telling what was in it and it was probably going to be taken off the shelf sometime in the future for being dangerous. Instead of jumping on his "potential danger to our health" paranoia band wagon I stocked up on my next trip to the store. I keep a large quantity in my laundry room in case they stop making them for whatever reason!

Jersey and Phoenix love to color on the walls. I don't know what I would do without that Mr. Clean.

That's great that you made Jackson clean up after himself. Hopefully he learned a lesson! I will definitely keep the Magic Eraser in mind in a couple years when Libby makes trouble!

Allison Taylor said...

Ha ha, I've been there too... except that it was with a marker on a white wall! Magic eraser got it off, completely! If they don't cut their own hair, it's this.
