The Cat Door

Our upstairs neighbors installed a cat door so that my son would stop escaping out the back door.  As you can see that made things worse- it was broken within a day.

Black Sharpie + Couch

My couch.  Newly decorated with black sharpie by the 2 1/2 year old.  It should be noted Daddy was 2 feet away the entire time (staring at a computer game, I am sure).  Both were punished.
