Miscommunication

So, I think I was given the amazing gift of
speaking in tongues.

Because
Whenever I say something to my children
something gets lost in translation.

Like for instance

"We only color on paper!"
Cohen somehow translates that to mean

"Please color on your arm."

and when I am yelling
"NO NO NO, DO NOT COLOR ON YOUR ARM!"

It somehow turns into


"Please, please please..."
"Color on your face."


I wonder what
"Time out, time out, time out!"
will turn into.

Maybe,
"Please scribble on the TV with a Sharpie Marker!"

Oh wait,
that came before "We only color on paper".
When I said "You cannot have Sharpies Ever!"

Okay, so once my kids decided to draw a "map" on the playroom carpet with CRAYON. PURPLE crayon. They covered the entire room, and it's a huge room. Nothing gets it out. I tried everything, and actually Murphy's Oil Soap came the closest, but you can still kind of see it.
As for markers, my kids get "grounded" from them every other week for drawing on: arms, walls, carpet, laundry baskets, lampshades, clothing, furniture. etc. etc.

I love your blog!
