Bored

What does a 3 year old do when they get bored while their mom is in the shower? Well, if it's a 3 year old named Peyton, he goes to the kitchen cupboard to rifle around. He spots the can of hot cocoa mix. He takes it out and dumps about 2 cups worth of it onto the kitchen floor, living room floor, fireplace mantle and living room couch. (2 cups worth of hot cocoa mix goes a long way.) He then proudly points out what he's done once his mom gets out of the shower and tells her she needs to vacuum it up. He then watches her vacuum and points at the mess saying, "I did that!" He gets scolded, but doesn't act remorseful. In the slightest little bit.

He then gets bored again while his mom is blow drying her hair and decides the same couch he earlier dumped hot cocoa mix on, needs a little something "more". So, he takes a black, ballpoint pen and "colors" on 2 of the cushions. When his mom finishes with her hair, he comes running and says, "I did it again! Come see! Come see!" He then proudly points out the new decoration and says, "yep! I did that!" He gets scolded, but doesn't act remorseful. In the slightest bit.

Oh no! Will it come out? Ethan got bored as a four year old and now my "pretty blue carpet" is even more beautiful with a red marker colored map all over the downstairs family room.

Yeah, I know that I can get it out, but the problem is that I don't have any cleaner here that will do it. I'm going to have to go to the store for it. Of course.

I hope you took pictures because someday it will be funny. I can say that because when Ryan was 4 he took a black sharpie to my kitchen floor. I wish I had taken a picture. :)

I do think it's funny, but I can only say that because I was able to clean up the messes. I'd be livid if I couldn't. :)

I'll have a youngster like this again soon enough. I'm not looking forward to that stage :)
