Don't tell the Princess that I told you, but as I was sitting down on her bed to read her a story at bedtime, I noticed out of the corner of my eye a beautiful hand-drawn picture of a little girl on her wall. Yes, on her wall. Not taped to her wall, drawn ONTO her wall. Oy.

Good thing for her I don't hit. I did make her cry when I said, "I am very angry with you right now, and I don't feel like reading to you anymore tonight. And tomorrow you will wash this off during your playtime." About 10 minutes later she came downstairs still sniffling and said, "I'm sorry, Mommy."

Kids, what are ya gonna do?.... At least it's in pencil.

She's not the first Zacks child to write and draw on walls! I'm sure she won't be the last... just one of the joys of childhood

I wasn't angry once I left her room. Mostly it was "put on" for her. So what if there's a drawing on the wall in a kid's bedroom? I just don't want the "art" to make it's way onto more important surfaces. If Air had been home, I would have found him for a big chuckle behind closed doors.

Emah, that's exactly what she used to take it off completely the next day. She did need a considerable amount of elbow grease, though.

true confession: I once wrote the word "damn" in permanent marker on the wall near my bed. I was about 8 years old and the minute I finished writing I was terrified of what my parents were going to do to me. So I drew a picture (on paper!) and taped it over the word. My parents never did find out about it, because we moved soon thereafter!
