The 3 year old who may not live to see 4....

You would think this was a picture of a little hand that got pressed down on an ink pad. Nope. It's colored. With glittery gel pen. That's right. Monkey sat under the table and literally colored her hand so much that it was covered in gel pen ink.

That's not to say she didn't get into trouble with an actual ink pad as well. Permanent ink.

Things that she ruined that day BEFORE coloring her hand with the gel pen: The carpet. Her purple ruffly shirt. Oh yeah, the best...the valentines her sisters spent all Tuesday evening making...I showed them to you here.

What she did with chapstick a little while later: colored all over the front of one of our copies of the Book of Mormon. Colored chapstick all over herself. Colored chapstick all over the TV screen.

She also snuck into her big sister's dresser drawer, where Cowgirl had put her "favortie candy" that she got at her class Valentines party. Monkey ate every last piece. We realized when we saw all the wrappers hidden in the bathroom.

I've spent a lot of time praying for the willpower not to resort to violence this week. Please bless that today goes better!

I'm linking up to my seriously so much like me (only way funnier) friend MiMi. Go check it out!

Been there before! My daughter (now 6) took permanent marker to her face once. She wanted to be "pretty like mommy."

Ohhh NOOO!!! What a little turkey! My 2 year old did the hand coloring thing a little while back - matter of a fact that picture is on my blog. We are all blessed with a little stinker I tell ya. My husband & I often remark "it's a good thing she is so cute!" Not sure what would happen otherwise... ha ha ha

Jo said...

Oh no! I can only imagine the trouble my son is going to get into - you should blog about cleaning tips for these delightful treasures. I'll be the first to bookmark it. :)

Paula said...

Oh my goodness! It sounds like you've got your hands full with this daughter.

What a naughty lil monkey!! Reminds me of Curious George..."George is a monkey, so he does things that YOU CAN'T do." If you have to put a disclaimer on a cartoon, it's pretty much gonna be sucky.

Ohhhh noooo! My kids would never do something like that...no way...you believe me right. Right? Ya, me neither.

Amy said...

Oh know I guess that is what I have to look forward too. I am glad you enjoyed the Round Robin.

Ooooooo--someone is a sneaky pants!! Sounds like Michaela Byrd. I was able to scrub the red permanent marker off her lips b/c I caught her right after she did it. She looked like a tiny harlot. Will you just have to wait out the glittery gel pen marks???

PS. Thanks for putting my button up...I haven't seen it anywhere else yet. Hugs!!! :)

Lynn said...

Yeah. I remember those days.
Usually it was the walls somewhere though.

Symply Me said...

If I've said it once, I've said it a hundred times..."terrible twos" are NOTHING compared to "wanna throttle 'em threes"! Can't wait until mine are all past that point. You're not alone, Xazmin! There are many days I call my husband at work, and tell him there is a good chance I'm gonna end up on the news!

Rhonda said...

Little stinker! ;o) I have a couple of boys who have done most of that before! Yep...fun to look back on now! Ha!

Julie said...

Sounds like maybe your little girl and mine might have been seperated at birth:)

Jenny said...

ROTF, I'm sorry but that is so funny! I actually remember going into my sister's dresser and stealing her pack of gum and chewing each piece, while hiding behind my Mom's bed! LOL!

Grammy Kim said...

Oh my goodness! Now that I'm a grandma I can laugh at this sort of thing. I'm pretty sure you'll look back at this and laugh a bit! :D Sorry for the frustration now, though. This always seems to happen when you're most tired too.

Girl, we have been there - last week it was purple fingernail polish painted all over my white cabinets.

So sorry! Tomorrow will be better!

Sarah said...

Oh, heavens! I love the title of your post! :-)

shortmama said...

Emmy said...
