So, can you tell the markers were not put away in the right place in the school room? Cole had quite a fun time, while Carson and I were doing Math. He was amusing himself so well that we just kept plugging away.
As you can see, we should have checked on him. Notice the cap in his hand and the green marker on his face?
I went to get something to clean him up, but made a mistake and left big brother with him and the markers.
Brother decided he needed back surgery. Notice the scar? Carson has always had a little problem with markers, especially Sharpies (thankfully, this was NOT a Sharpie).
When he was four, Chad caught him writing the word P-O-O-P on a man’s dump truck where the guys park the bus! Thankfully, we learned that hairspray takes Sharpie off of trucks.
He also decided to trace his hands and feet with a Sharpie one day. He had black toenails for a week (hairspray doesn’t work for toenails😕).
He also wanted eye black, the marks football players make under their eyes? Well, why not use a Sharpie? He had big, black marks under his eyes for quite a while, with that one.
His latest was at a concert with Daddy. He isn’t supposed to have Sharpies without us being right with him, because of all his “mistakes,” but I’m not sure what happened. When they got home and I washed clothes, I noticed he had Sharpie on the back of his underwear. I grabbed his khakis, but there was no marker. I looked at his shirt and found a streak across the front. So, how did he have marker on his shirt and on his underwear, but not his pants? Well, after asking Carson, he told me he just could not remember how that happened. Amazing, but very much like him.
So, needless to say, the Baker boys will be taking a loooong break from markers, a very long break. So, instead, we have been taking a great interest in Twistables’ erasable colored pencils these days. Although, knowing my boys, they’ll figure out how to use these against us, also.
Silly, silly boys…
