It was bound to happen. Last night I feel like I was officially inducted into the “toddler mom” club. Let me set the scene:
Last night Chris was at work late (IE: playing softball with his Soldiers) and Em and I had just finished dinner. I cleaned her up, turned on Mickey Mouse in the living room, and proceeded to hurry and put the dishes in the dishwasher. In less than 5 minutes, my little angel did a lot of damage.
Unbeknownst to me, she climbed on to my desk (mom fail), grabbed a black Sharpie, and proceeded to create her masterpiece. All over her arms and legs, the arm of my couch, and my coffee table.
Some things I learned:
- Furniture protection plans are worth their weight in gold … and definitely worth the money
- Baby oil removed black Sharpie from your kid really well
- Nail polish remover worked on my coffee table and didn’t remove the finish – no guarantees on yours though
- It was nights like this that I wish I could drink a beer … instead I settled for cake pops
