Recent email from TX son to me about three year old

RE: CA was so quiet upstairs by herself

My reply:

Yikes! I don't know what you do about that.  My advice would be to call Stanley Steamer.

Is she banned for life from crayons?

Son's reply to me:

She apparently just trying out different mediums:
crayon on paper
crayon on painted wall (eggshell finish)
crayon on carpet (medium pile)

My reply to him:

Apparently, we have another artist in the family.....an experimental artist.

  5. Oh boy.. I remember a pot of dark green paint on a deep pile light gray carpet. It's a rite of passage.

  6. Aw, but it is so cute though.;) It reminds me of my little sister, that apparently drew a whole masterpiece on the wall beneath her baby cot. When we were moving and the cot was removed, the wall was riddled with abstract drawings in multitude of colours.;))

  8. I actually was about to suggest the paper towel and iron trick.

    Living with an artist can be trying....

  12. When we moved out of our previous house, after the furniture was emptied from the living room, we discovered our daughter had drawn a huge mural behind the floor length curtains. With markers.
