My getting to work on time

Woke up to much ruffling sounds in the kids’ bedroom. They wanted to be tigers. I wanted to roar like one.

    Here, here! I totally agree Sarah! I say as parents we throw out permanant markers for GOOD… and scold any relative that decides a gift set that happens to come with markers to our children for birthdays, christmas, etc…

    You have no idea how relieved I was to realize that was Magic Marker and not. . . well, I don’t think I have to say what brown streaks down the legs look like.

    Ha, ha, ha! I say, throw those kids into some long sleeves and long pants and get out the door anyway! Good thing it’s winter. Oh, and never buy permanent markers!

      That’s what I do too, although an amazing amount comes off with wet wipes!

      This. I fail to see why you were late to work? Even if it looks dirty, if it’s dry (and thus not going to spread any where else), and they don’t stink, then who cares?

    This is so funny. My son did something similar the night before his kindergarten “graduation”. He wanted to be a zebra…purple magic marker from head to toe. I thought I was gonna lose it lol.

    My son for a while was drawing lines like that on his arms, down to his fingers, “where the lasers come out.”

    I remember when my little brother drew lines all over our golden retriever with markers. She even had bright lines going down her nose. The awesomeness of kids.
