The girls have been becoming very independent lately. They will go down to the basement and keep themselves occupied playing together for a good while. However, it's almost always doing crafts. Messy crafts. They like to paint with water on the chalk board and spill it everywhere. They take out paints they shouldn't and paint (meaning they climb on a stool to the stop shelf of our craft tower and get it). Besides a little mess, it's been a good thing. Well, Sunday, Sylvia disappeared. I found her with a RED sharpe permanent marker (taken from Daddy's desk drawer) and she MARKED on the wall in the powder room. THANK GOODNESS it wasn't on my new wallpaper! She did a nice big squiggle on the white window trim. Oh man, not good. Magic eraser took care of most of it. She sat in time out for 7 minutes = double the normal time out + 1 minute because I WAS HEATED!
So, Sylvia is not allowed to use markers for one week.
She's such a goof.
