And because me daughter is such an overachiever...
Naturally, this latest "incident" deserved to be showcased on my blog. And because I'm a big believer in passing along the knowledge that comes with parenting a toddler, I've decided to turn my misfortune into a learning experience for you all. And so this post was born.
Here is my 9 Step Approach to Removing Permanent marker From Your Child. Be sure to take good notes.
Step 1: Take photos to document this incident for future blackmail
Step 2: Go to Walgreens with permanent color covered child in tow and smile at horrified onlookers
Step 3: Purchase makeup remover
Step 4: Go home and take more photos
Step 5: Wrestle with child while attempting to wipe them down
Step 6: Take a short break to rehydrate with a glass of wine
Step 7: Continue reenacting scenes from WrestleMania with child while attempting to remove permanent marker
Step 8: Briefly entertain the thought of taking an impromptu trip to visit the grandparents and then making a break for it once they have their grandchild in their arms.
Step 7: Tweet about the latest incident (although this can be done intermittently throughout the process)
Step 8: Indulge in another glass of wine while writing a post with instructions on how to remove permanent marker from a child
