Leaving the tot to play while taking a shower wasn’t the best idea.

Forgetting that black permanent marker on my desk was a worse idea.

  1. The horror!!! I’m already imagining all sorts of scenes here: black marker scribbled all over your favorite painting, all over the white sofas, all over the… Eeeek!

    This is every mother’s nightmare 😉 LOL

  2. HA! I adored this! I have a friend who has a similar story to tell. She posted pictures of the aftermath on facebook. #mess indeed!

  3. Yeah, taking a quick moment to shower can be disastrous! My tot decided the back of the couch was the coolest place ever to create some lovely long lines – ha! Our couch floats in the middle of our living room – no wall to shove it against.
    Luckily, the marker came out….

  4. GREAT post! Love it. Definitely gave me a good laugh, but not the ‘at you’ kind, the ‘OMG I’ve TOTALLY been there’ kind. Thanks for sharing!

  5. LMAO! Yep. Been there. Accidently dozed off one time while my toddler and infant tore the living room up. >.< This story made me LAUGH! we've ALLLLLLL been there.

  6. I’ve been there, unfortunately, but with a black ball point pen. Not necessarily a permanent marker, but it might as well have been!

    Nice job!
