Someday I'll laugh about this? I don't think so.

Friday afternoon while Mikayla was supposed to be sleeping, she got into a bit of mischief. I woke up to markers. She wanted to do art work and wanted to look like the guy at Wal-mart (I'm assuming the one who had tattoos all over his arms). She had marked all over herself, her clothes, her stool (the one used to GET the markers), and our comforter. The last thing I mentioned made me the saddest (read: MADDEST).

Boy was she ever in trouble. I thought about posting a picture of it, but I think you can only do that if you think it's kinda cute. And it wasn't. Not in the least.

"Poor" girl got her piggy bank emptied, her kitchen set retired for about a month, and many of her toys sold at the garage sale we had today to help pay for a new comforter for us. The comforter she ruined would've cost over 100 dollars to replace. So, we opted for a cheap(er) plain black one.

How I love that girl! But, she's starting to get destructive!! HELP!

Think I'll ever laugh about this one?? I don't know. I can't imagine.

(It really was a creative drawing on the bedspread. I saw it.)

Oh, that girl! You have your version of Destructo Dan, who used to stick pens into the car upholstery and tear down the liner from the top bunk bed. If it helps, Dan's now quite CONstructive. Oh, well....

Whatagranddaughter! Gotta love her!

Sarah, I have a great big "H" for Hannah, my youngest written on the side of my lovely wooden dresser in permanent marker....I know there will come a day when I will look at it and long for the days.

WOW. I am not looking forward to those type of adventures.

I think she's just rebelling because she feels like she doesn't get enough time with Aunt Christy. Poor girl is right! Send her on over next time you're frustrated.

Love you. And HER!!!!!

And PWe is right.. it was a very creative drawing. I'm just saying...
