It was too quiet. The too quiet that Moms know means trouble. I finally found him. I laughed (I knew they were washable markers and it was just the tile floor.) I took a few photos. I told my Mom. She said, "Don't laugh, the kids will think it is funny." Ha Ha Mom . . . whatever.
I told Trent. He said, "Did you throw all the markers away?" I said, "No, I just put them on the counter out of Adam's reach." He said, "Throw them away." I laughed and thought, "He is so over-reacting!" He said, "One of these days, it's gonna be permanent marker on the carpet or something. " Yeah, Yeah, . . . whatever.
20 Minutes Later. . . Catherine screams "Moooooooooooooooom! Get in here. Madelyn had given Adam the marker pail (again) but this time he repeated this little incident on my beautiful white berber carpet in my family room.
I was soooooooo MAD. I COULD NOT EVEN TAKE A PICTURE OF IT!!!~!!
THEY ALL GOT SENT TO BED. I GOT OUT THE CARPET CLEANER AND A WHILE LATER I DID GET IT ALL OUT. . . IT WAS A LOT OF WORK . . . AND FOR AWHILE I THOUGHT IT MIGHT NOT.
Listen to your mother. Don't laugh when your kids do something wrong, they will try to be "funny" again. And when your husband tells you to throw away 100 perfectly good markers. DO IT!!!!!!
