Three Cheers for Washable Markers

This is what I found in my living room today...
Hey Olivia, what are you doing?

Funny girl.
Where did you get the markers Olivia?
Ah ha! You had some help I see...

Why are you drawing on your sister Owen?

Oh, I see... you were teaching her how to be a ninja.
Of course. I should have known.

So funny. I love washable markers!

My boys have recently gotten into Toy Story 1 AND 2. I see Owen in his cowboy clothes and it reminds me of that. Except, my boys are totally in love with Buzz. Infact, there are times when Nate leaves and only Buzz Lightyear is left in his place. "Not Buzz, it's Buzz WIGHTYEWR!!!" To infintity and beyond!

i'd say that owen makes an excellent ninja. excellent stance, and intimidating ninja face. he just needs a good pair of nunchucks.

Cute, funny, so insightful and respectful of children's creativity.

Your presentation is brilliant.

I wish there was a TV channel of children's play and interactions and respectful adult responses. Of course watching kids, being with kids bring out all our old stuff, lashing out, bad feelings, confusion - which have to get sorted out somewhere else so that we can play openly again. But we need that to keep us growing.

Thanks for sharing what makes some people go ballistic.
