No Mom Should Have To Endure A Three Year Old With A Marker.

Dear People Without Kids:

Don’t buy toddlers markers unless you plan on cleaning up the aftermath. It’s just not a good idea.

Sincerely, Moms Everywhere.

My little Picasso decided to leave her mark on the walls, a lampshade, a ball, most of her toys, books, and.. oh yeah, her face:

June 12, 2012                                                                                              January 13, 2013

So yeah.

I advocate the use of Crayola’s Color Wonder products. I love them. Those you can buy for toddlers. The only downside is that you have to have the paper for them. That’s not too big of a deal, and a totally fair trade for the quality of your stuff AND your sanity. They also make finger paints. Those are cool, sort of sticky (the paper, I mean, not the paint… that’s goopy), and super easy to clean up.

Final ruling: Crayons, colored pencils, Color Wonder stuff OK, markers that actually show up on stuff, NOT OK.

  1. I can laugh now, because I’m the mom of two tweens. Which presents a whole new world of issues! Enjoy it while it lasts 😉
