this too shall pass

Someday my home may show no signs of a creative toddler.

But for now..
the signs are everywhere.

okay, so I have to ask...what was your method of discipline here? Did you see it happen or not til after?

My three year old did this this summer and I didn't see it happen so I just told her not to do it again. She hasn't but I'm just wondering what you did...for future reference since I have an 8 month old who is a little stronger willed (already)!

Sarah -
I didn't see it. So I just brought him to the wall and said "no, no, only on paper." The walls are a mess anyway. We've lived here 10 years and we need to paint all of them. If we'd just painted them I probably would have been upset. I figure he needs to learn this early on. He's left other markings to. Which I didn't see him do either. We really need to keep the markers up where he cant get them.
So there you have it. You think I was too easy on him?
