I guess I was pretty tired, because I fell asleep when I put Ivy down for her nap. Eden was watching her new favorite movie, Eight Below, and came to wake me up when it was over. Guess what I found when I walked out of the bedroom.

Sharpie.

Everywhere.

She'd put some things on my chair so that she could climb up and reach my pen jar on top of my desk.

We're talking: the walls, Josh's weight bench, her & Ivy's TV, bookshelf, her toy angel, the kitchen counters, my suitcase, computer desk & mouse pad, the refrigerator... and as we just found out, INSIDE the refrigerator.

Josh had some stuff called 'goof off', which smells like it's basically paint thinner, and that helped a bit. We got it off the kitchen counters, and most of it off of the fridge. A lot of what was on the walls came off, but the rest is just a big purpley-black stain. Josh's weight bench won't come off at all, and when I tried to use it on the cheese drawer in the fridge, it pretty much ate through the plastic. And she's lucky that was an old suitcase.

*sigh*

A Sharpie is a permanent marker:

I'm not sure if it would work but maybe rubbing alcohol? Also..I've heard really good things about the Mr Clean Magic Eraser..that thing has gotten out all types of things for different people..I'm almost afraid to wonder what makes it so good..

Well, if that paint thinner stuff didn't work all the way, I'm not sure the alcohol would. I'll try it on Josh's workout bench, though. I'll look for one of those Magic Erasers. If it doesn't work on the Sharpie, lord knows we'll be able to use it on something else. ;)

Re: *love love*
I guess you're right. I'm sure one day I'll look back on it and laugh. *sigh* Not today, though. Unfortunately, we live in a little single-wide trailor, so she pretty much got about 60% of the surfaces in the house. :(

Something to get it off...
When my boys write on my white board with the Sharpies we have laying around we can just write over their scribbles with a dry erase marker, and it erases the sharpie. Weird, huh? Try it on the weight bench!

Re: Something to get it off...
OMG, really? That's so cool. I will try it. I'll have to pick up some dry erase markers. Thanks a bunch!

Aw, thanks! Yeah, I feel bad because she was saying "I made funny faces". She's getting good at drawing faces & people. But at the same time, she KNOWS that she's only supposed to color in her notebook. She's gotten in trouble several times for drawing on things she's not supposed to, so that's a big rule in our house right now. And it was just EVERYWHERE. Big bad mess. Wouldn't have been so bad if it could come off! :(

I love Goof Off! Nothing better for a lot of stuff. But, yeah it is bad for plastic. For the fabric try this... ugg what is it called. DAMN it is a stain remover in the detergent section. The bottle is two sections, half pink and half white. You squirt it on and it bubbles up a but. I think it may be by Shout. I am not sure. But it works great. I use it on my area rug all the time. It took out red cough syrup.

This made me laugh so hard when I read it. I was remembering the time Justin and Carissa decided to finger paint in the middle of my living room with the mustard and ketchup squirt bottles. That was the day I bought my Bisel Little Green Clean Machine. It was a rough year for furniture. A few weeks later they got in to the fridge and threw 2 dozen eggs across the kitchen JUST to watch them crack on the wall and ooze down into a puddle of orange goo. Aren't kids great. lol

Take a deep breath and repeat after me "homes are for self expressions, not first impressions!"

"homes are for self expressions, not first impressions!"

I like that! But dang, I still need to get back on the FLY-wagon and get the clutter out, so we have more room to express. AND impress upon Eden the importance of NOT drawing on walls and furniture! Ugh, we tell her so many times...

The funny thing is - this icon, Play like no one's watching? Well I wanted to make a 'dance like...' icon but didn't have a picture of them dancing so I did that one instead. And ever since I made it a few days ago, that's EXACTLY what Eden's been doing - playing like no one's watching, getting into ALL SORTS of mischief/trouble, sneaking around.... *rolls eyes* I've been so big on manifesting, it's happening inadvertantly lately. ;)

*giggles* I once had a very similar situation. I was nursing my 2 year old to get her to nap, and I fell asleep in the process. Woke up to a thick cloud of talc powder in the air, and the scent of several bottles of nail polish Smeared about the house...mostly in the carpet and my underwear drawer. I didn't laugh at the time, but i sure do now...hehehe

Jul. 3rd, 2006 07:59 pm (UTC)
Oh, lord, I bet that was fun! I remember once years back I knocked over my nail polish on the coffee table - and my dumbass tried to use nail polish remover to get it up! Suffice it to say that the coffee table was beyond ruined. LOL

I'm sure I'll be laughing about it in a week or two. Until I open the fridge and see permanent marker lines all over my cheese drawers!

oh wow! Did you ask her what the scribbles were/said/etc.? :p

Jul. 3rd, 2006 08:01 pm (UTC)
Oh, I know what they were. Funny faces, with a couple bunnies. That's her drawings of choice lately. Little people faces everywhere. Maybe I'll take pics of the stuff that wouldn't come off, just to show everyone....

Cute kid in your icon! Who's is it? (I may be wrong, but I didn't think you had kids.)
