...on my couch.
I knew the day would come when I'd walk into the office & see scribble marks on my white couch. In fact every day I hold my breath as I enter. There is no way to child proof the doors because they just push open. I have considered myself lucky until now. While I was folding clothes in my room, she had gone into the office to do the damage. When she came back to my room I saw she had drawn all over her. That's when I went to investigate. I can't believe she did that. The one room that I think is cute, she had to mess up. I wish it would have been our living room couch because that one is already looking pretty shabby. But no, she did it to the 3 month old couch. Yes it was from Ikea, but it still looked good in the space.
So I gave her a lecture that she smiled her way through. I know she knows she wasn't supposed to do that. Every day when she draws, I say "paper only" & she's really good about it. But when I was trying to be stern with her & explain that that is NOT ok, I feel like she didn't get it. What can you do? Lane punished her by putting her head in the fan. Ok I'm kidding, well not really. The 2 incidents were totally unrelated. Later this evening he was playing with her & lifted her up to put her on his shoulders. Apparently he lifted her a little too high because her head hit the fan. *No children were hurt during this time.* She did stick her lip out for a second & then was fine. I teased him that he showed her.
