How to ruin Mama's favorite marker... in 8 easy steps.

How to Ruin Mama's Favorite Sharpie... and Not Only Live To Tell The Tale, but Make Mama Feel Guilty for Ruining Your Fun Too.
by Mr. Bug

Step 1... Pretend you're chowing down on a cup full of dry cheerios so Mama will get busy and distracted. Make sure to drool cheerio goo all over for good measure.
Step 2... Sneak in under the desk chair and snag the marker before anyone notices.
Step 3... Hide behind the couch and uncap the marker.
Step 4... Color your right hand...

Step 5... Color your left hand thoroughly, including wrist... 

Step 6... Decorate your outfit with polka-dots.
Step 7... Taste test until Mama sees you and freaks out, taking the pen away and worrying over how much toxic ink you just swallowed.
Step 8... Start crying and then just give Mama the teary-eyed pathetic look as only a baby boy can...

...then she'll feel guilty for taking the marker away even though it defies logic.


  1. Ugh! I don't know how many times I've wiped my baby clean of pens and markers, etc.

    When my oldest was little he colored himself from head to toe w/ markers (thankfully, they were washable!) I have a lovely picture of him in his diaper all colored up!


  2. He is too cute!!!! Haven't we all been there.

  3. Awww...He looks so sad. I had a little scare today because Avalynn grabbed her diaper rash cream while I was changing her diaper and ate a small amount of it! I have been watching her but she seems okay. Only ate a little tiny bit but I was still worried!

  4. My daughter not only colored herself but our leather couches! She didn't eat any but was covered in marker from head to toe and I still have no idea where she found the marker!


  5. Oh no! Marker probably doesn't come out of leather well, eh? Eeek! The things kids do! Lol!
