The 1st Mishap at the Art Shelf
Last night I looked over at O while I was cooking and she was drawing at her art shelf. She was coloring all over the shelf with a marker. I screamed, and the poor child looked terrified. I explained to her that we only color on paper, not shelves. She cleaned it up (luckily, she was using washable markers!) and told me she was sorry. I told her I was sorry for scaring her when I screamed. She looked at me very seriously and said "You screamed too woud (loud), mama! You need use your inside voice. Next time scream like this "ahhh" (her scream was very soft and sweet!) She really doesn't like loud noises, and hopefully she won't color on the shelves again :) She said she colored on the shelf because her paper was full. I reminded her that she can flip to a blank sheet of paper. Hopefully, she'll remember next time!
