On Saturday mornings we try to sleep in.
Usually this means we get up at 6:45 instead of 6:40.
Our 34.2 lb "alarm clock" usually wakes us up.
Last Saturday our alarm clock woke up at SIX.
Um, NO. Back to bed you go.
Bubbalu wasn't too thrilled at being put back to bed and wandered downstairs whilst Mama and Papa tried to sleep in.
I was dozing and could hear him rummaging around with his train set. After a good while it got quiet.
The TOO QUIET is NEVER good with young children.
It's the TOO QUIET that makes you sprint down the stairs to find out what's going on.
This time the TOO QUIET was:
and (look closely, window AND windowsil) :
and more window and windowsil:
Oh yeah, and I forgot, the pièce de résistance:
Kinda ironic that I'm googling "how to remove sharpie" and reading the hints and tips THROUGH a sharpie scrawled screen.
Surprisingly, the computer screen was the easiest thing to clean. How I did it? A pencil eraser. It erased the sharpie RIGHT OFF. I was astounded, but very relieved that my computer screen wasn't permanently damaged. Oh, and when I picked up my camera to take a picture of the sharpie-marked room and turned it on, sure enough, he'd gotten the back display too. Pencil eraser once again to the rescue.
Mr. Clean Magic Eraser got most of the sharpie off the computer, mouse, printer, exersaucer (didn't take a picture of those) , camera, window and windowsil. If you remember, this isn't the first time Bubbalu has marked the windowsil.
No, I never did get around the sanding it down and refinishing it the first time around. Good thing because I would have been that much more upset...as if that's even possible.
Took me only an hour to laugh about it all. Lance smiled right away.
It was one of those JUST CHOOSE JOY moments. This time it took me an hour. I'm working on shortening the time distance between THE EVENT to THE JOY.
I think this may be a life-long journey, this CHOOSING JOY business...
