The Writing on the Wall
A few weeks ago, Elijah wrote on the wall (see above). I wasn't too upset, though, for two reasons:
1) Because Elijah likes to narrate his existence, and I was standing close by, he hadn't gotten very far when he announced, "Look, Mommy. I write on wall.
2) If children's books any indication, this is some kind of childhood rite of passage. Just ask David, Olivia, or this baby.
So, instead of sending him off time time out, as Olivia's mom did with her, I got out a piece of paper and taped it to the wall so that Elijah could have a vertical drawing experience without the property damage. Thankfully, there have been no repeat performances to date.
