Normally, when we catch one of our kids marking up the place, we reward their graffiti with a stern "no no" and make them help clean it up.

Now we're contemplating painting the 'fridge with that "chalkboard" paint and letting Gilly go to town on it.

We must be getting worn down.

Responses to our kids over time:

"Nicky! Look what you did! Now you have to help me clean this up."

Middle child:
"Harry, stop that right now. Don't you make me get off this couch!"

"Well, I think it looks kinda nice. Maybe we'll wait until she covers the whole thing and then clean it. Or buy a new one."

and of course the older kids resent your squelching of their possible picaso-like talents for the rest of their lives.

Spoken like a true oldest child. ;-)
