This is what it's like...

when kids have unlimited access to markers and a mom who really should pay more attention to what they're up to. Is it better or worse if I say all these pictures were taken months apart? Worse, I say. Much, much worse.

Have I mentioned, by the way, that the second picture was the product of a black SHARPIE marker? Yeah. That one lasted for days.

You'd think by now I'd have learned my lesson, right? Then again, they do make for some fun photo ops!

For more fun pics from the past, check out Fro' Me To You over at That Family's site.

I have a neat-freak child (she gets it from me) so I've never personally experience this, BUT I did work at a preschool, so I've seen worse!

That is so funny! I get on my kids for doing the same thing. I'm glad to know that other kids color themselves.

Tammy said...

Wow, look at all the talent they have. Quite the ar-teest, I must say.

LOL...artists in the making! So frustrating but SO CUTE! I try to keep the sharpies out of sight, there are no safe places left in my house for indelible ink markers! My boys loved to draw murals on the walls...and who could erase the first bits of the first written alphabet? Their room used to look like a graffiti artist lived there...lol!

Great photos!

Blessings!
