Quick on the Draw

Warning to all potential babysitters . . . Canaan can color like nobody's business. He colors without discrimination. See? Walls . . . Bunk beds . . .
Doors . . .
Non-painted archways . . . (maybe a good reason to FINALLY paint them?)
And oh, my baby - my sweet leather couch . . .
Seriously . . .
Daddy? Just in case you ever forget where to charge your cell phone, I have drawn you a fine path . . .
Lord help us!

  2. Oh, NO!! I sure hope you can get that off your sofa! Magic Eraser works great on walls, but not so much on fabric. Our last couch had the same... decoration. ;)

  6. Now, I am certain that Canaan and Amelia are soul mates. She has similar "work" in our home. They're both excllent artists :)

  7. At least tell me that he didn't do it all in one day! =)

    We had some friends over a few years ago, right after we got our big screen TV. Their middle son is autistic, and he loves to draw and color and watch TV. So, we set him up in the basement watching TV and coloring. I didn't think anything of it when he came to me and asked for more paper, but when he told me that he needed bigger paper, I paused. still didn't go check on him. When i just happened to walk through the room where he was watching TV, I saw why he wanted big paper. He'd paused The Lion King and was trying to trace the lion onto his paper. but, b/c I didn't give him big enough paper, he was drawing w/ permanent marker on the screen! =) Inside i was freaking out, but i didn't want to scare him, so i went and got his dad, our friend. In the end, we were able to just wipe the marker off the screen, like a dry erase board, and all was fine. Now it's funny. Poor kid...if only I would have listened to him! =)
