keep out of reach of children

What is that all over my sweet baby boy's knees?



A smidgen of light blue and then some hot pink.

Lovely, eh?

This kid cried when I ripped the marker from his hands. Then he found the brush from build a bear and tried scrubbing it off.
Thankfully, he just drew on his legs and a bit on his arms. I'm sure you are wondering where on earth I was while it happened. I had just turned on Frozen per Allyson's request. I was enjoying a few minutes of silence, Disney was working their magic on my kids.


My 2 year old found the sharpies my littlest sister borrowed {without asking} and had left them within reach of Austin.

Lesson learned, lock up my sharpies!

Rubbing alcohol is magic at getting sharpie off of skin.



  1. Found you from SITS! I can so relate to this! My son is getting into everything! It seems he has special trouble seeking radar.

  2. Argh. My daughter gets into everything these days. She has also discovered that her step stool is not just for jumping off of. I am doomed!

    1. We have a headboard that has storage shelves built in and my little has figured out that he can climb up, and launch himself headfirst onto the bed. Scares the crap out of me, but he thinks it is a blast!

  3. Ah, yes, sharpies :) So helpful yet the enemy of moms and walls everywhere. My daughter only has access to washables after i learned my lesson ;)

  4. Aren't 2 year olds grand? Mine found one of Daddy's screwdrivers and royally slaughtered our drum stool. Guess I get to have a craft session with duct tape to try to salvage the poor thing...

  5. I have never heard about the rubbing alcohol tip. Thanks for that! Isla has never done it with a sharpie, but with plenty of other markers that take days to wear off.
