I colored on your car with a rock!

I was getting out of my car and noticed severe scratches on the driver’s side door. I brought it to the attention of my family and my 4 year old daughter said “I colored on your car with a rock!” I expressed my dismay and she told me to just bring it to the car wash.

    My 7 year old wrote Mom, her brother’s name, and her name on her Dad’s truck with a rock.  I thought his head was going to explode.  LOL…she didn’t even write his name.  It’s there for life.

    My son “washed our car” with a rock!  My husband was taking  him to preschool & was outside with him-locking the garage door & then opening the car doors.  Our son is small & quick.  Very quick!  It only takes a few seconds, a slight bit of distraction & he can get into all sorts of trouble!

    My son “washed” our car with a rock.  My husband was taking him to preschool & looked away long enough to lock the garage door & unlock car doors I guess (I was in the house).  It all happened so quickly.  Our son is small & quick.  VERY QUICK.  It only takes a few seconds to ruin $hit!  He actually thought he was helping & feels terrible that he damaged the car – although it was months ago, he still talks about it & how it was a bad idea to wash the car with a rock!

    My 4 year old just did the same thing to my van with a stick!

    Well now I want to see the flagged comment!!  😉  I think I can figure it out.

    One of my kids, don’t even know which one (I have 3, so I’m always swarmed, and they clearly don’t receive any standard of care from us …  LOL), broke a minor part off our first new car ever THE DAY WE BROUGHT IT HOME.  I was like “Balls! … well, I guess this is no surprise …”  We’ve continued to trash it for the last 6 years, lol!!!

    I feel your pain.  My son did exactly the same a couple of weeks ago.  He managed to get all the panels on the right side of the car, and the bonnet.

    Where are the parents when this is happening?

      Apparently you don’t have kids. And if you do you’re far too overprotective to understand that they do need some independence without you hovering over them every second. Name one kid that has never done anything they shouldn’t when the parents blinked for five seconds or for that matter were two feet away. Stop judging and get off the site if you have a problem.

        No, if someone’s letting their five year old run the street to do something like this (which happened to me in 1992), you have every right to ask where the hell the parents are.

          This was a four year old who obviously snuck around the side of the car; which was most likely in the driveway with her parents outside with her.. I have no idea why sharks like to attack in chat rooms like this but good grief!

          Ummm…where does it say this child was running the streets?  It was the parents car….I guess they must of ran across town to color on their parent’s car.  Talented 4 year old!  Just because your parent(s) were no good doesn’t mean you can assume all parents who have an incident are.  WOW

      Oh you know, we just sit and eat our bon bons and wish they’d go away.. .. What an idiotic question.

      Stuff happens.  You know as human beings we parents have basic needs too. You know…going to the bathroom…showering…etc.  Are we supposed to take them in there with us…that would start a whole new issue wouldn’t it?  Are we supposed to take our kids to babysitters so that we can have a role other then “parent”.  Pay babysitters (if we can afford it) so we can shower, clean house, and do other the other responsibilities that go along with being human and an adult?  We should smother our children 24/7?  Being a parent is a huge, and usually the biggest and most important role in a parents life but it doesn’t make all our other responsibilities void.  If you can’t empathize with small, innocent, and often humorous (at least in time) mishaps then stay away from places like this.  You clearly have no reason to be here.

    Katelynn has a valid point. When I was a kid I tried to feed my baby brother an entire bottle of baby aspirin (they tasted like orange candy). I also put the car in reverse when it was parked on a hill outside a store. I opened the car door while it was still moving and went to climb out (no seatbelt era).  In each of these instances I wasn’t more than a few feet from my mother. Small kids are not legally culpable for crime for a very good reason. Sh*t happens.

    My son did the same thing to our truck. We waited until he was just a little bit older and could understand NOT to write on the vehicles with rocks or branches and then had it repainted. As a bonus, my husband had pinstripes added to the truck when it was repainted.

    My parents vehicles is full of scratches. In fact, the truck is full of rust, but it’s just a shitty ass work truck, so we don’t give a fuck. But the minivan has scratches, it’s a pretty good van, pretty clean, and funny thing is my mom scratch it. And she gives a fuck even though she does it.
