My daughter (who is 7 now!) never really went through the "I have to write all over the wall" stage. She was more of a tape kid. Meaning that she would put tape on anything around the house! When she was 3 she even attempted to place tape around our cats tail!
One day last week I walk into my bedroom and see the scenes from above. I called my daughter in the room and asked her what happened.
In an extremely serious manner she proceeded to tell me that one of her friends at school said that there was a monster called the "Marking Monster" and she guessed that he had visited our house! (Where do they come up with this stuff? It's hilarious! If you had only been there!)
I stumped her when I asked why the monster seemed to have been trying to write "Kaylee" all over the walls and then tried to erase them (luckily it was pencil...not so lucky with the blue marker!). She just looked up at me with those big brown eyes and was speechless!
This one goes out to all of the moms, grandmothers, aunts, and anyone else who has been struck by the "Marking" monster! If he hasn't come yet...he will come...one day!
