Hidden Artwork

Posted on January 23, 2009. Filed under: The Parenting Thing |

Last night the kids and I were sitting on the floor…CK doing his spelling homework and Punk doing her coloring “homework.”  I got up to check on the laundry and when I come back I notice Punk is sitting on a wet dishtowel.  I worry that she wet her pants and put the towel there to soak it up so I have her stand up.  Her pants are completely dry.  I tell her not to sit on wet dishtowels because that’s gross and I pick it up to discover that not only had she colored outside the lines, she colored on the carpet.

In the grand scheme of things, color on the carpet is no big deal.  One of these days (months, years) we’ll get the carpet cleaner out and take care of the problem.  What really concerns me is that she knew she did something wrong, and in the quick two minutes I was gone, she found a way to hide it.  She just turned three people.  We’re in trouble.
