Learning to Write...But on the Carpet?

After Dylan's first day of school we went to see Grandma and Papa Harwood. We visited for a little while and when it was time to go they walked us out to the car and helped us put the boys in their seats. I was pulling Dylan's worksheets out of his bag, to see what he had done at school that day, when Janell says "we have that name written upstairs on our carpet in Isaac's black permanent marker." I was so stunned I didn't know what to say. She just laughed it off and said they need to replace the carpet anyway and not to get upset with Dylan cuz it wasn't that big of a deal. Well it's a big deal to me. If he would have written on my carpet he would have...let's just say he would have been in A LOT OF TROUBLE!! I guess I could learn a few things from my very patient mother-in-law! The next time we were over and had the camera Blake went up and took a picture of it to show me what he had done. The little stink!

The things children do!!

Love this blog Janee. How funny is this story! You are lucky that you have a very understanding mother-in-law who saw the humor in it all.
