Charlotte is a very artistic little girl. She's not creating prodigy masterpieces or anything, but the girl loves to draw, to color, to paint...she loves to create.
It's a blast to watch her lately too, as she is very deliberate in the marks she makes. A few months ago her big thing was circles and spirals. She would draw a bunch of little circles all over papers. Or she would start very small in the middle of a paper and circle outward, being very careful to make a spiral that wouldn't overlap itself. Now her big thing is little markings that look like letters. I have countless papers and notecards floating around my house that are sporting heiroglphyic like marks, her own little written language.
She won't say words but she tries to write them. Hmm.
Well, sometimes one can be a little too artistic.
You do know where this is going, right?
Recently Charlotte is leaving her signature all over the house.
Her preferred medium is Sharpie.
But never fear, if she can't track one down she will happily default to a pen, pencil, crayon, colored pencil or marker-standard, or dry or wet erase. She's not picky.
How she gets a hold of Sharpies is beyond me. We keep them locked away and yet she will randomly be walking around with one.
Someone please tell the Sharpie fairy to stop visiting my house!
On her last Tour de House that involved a Sharpie she really outdid herself.
She started out on the banister. *sigh*
Thanks to finding out quickly, some serious scrubbing, and some help from the pink eraser, it was saved. I may have passed out if this hadn't come off.
She then moved to the kitchen wall.
And the island.
A short detour through the dining room, then on down the hallway.
And to her bedroom.
But the real winner...OH yes, her grand finale.
Aaron and I were walking through surveying the damage and found Sophie trying to hide.
I'll spare you the pictures of the basement. Oy.
I have a lot of repainting to do.
