My sons made me a beautiful picture today... on the wall of my closet. Wonderful thought... but not the best idea they have ever had. Of course I really don't mind the writing on the wall since it was the back wall of the closet and all. But my husband does. He REALLY minds. I figure it is just not that big of a deal and not worth getting upset over. Besides, it was really cute.
They came to me in the bathroom while I was bathing Olivia and told me they had a surprise for me. Aiden said "I made you a love picture. I even put your name on it. And mine so you would know who we are. We used your special pens".
My special pens are Sharpie pens. Permanent marker. Perfect.
Still, it was adorable. And I got all mushy just seeing that he wrote "mom" all by himself. Even if it was on the wall.
Even Owen drew his own name.
Of course they also drew on the main walls of the bedroom too... and I am really hoping Magic Eraser works on permanent marker.
After I admired their work I told them that I didn't want them to draw on the walls anymore. Then they BOTH hugged me and THANKED me that I wasn't mad at them.
They really are very sweet... albeit a tad on the destructive side.
