Caleb is loving writing on EVERYTHING!! He starts with paper (as he should) but somehow those walls, floors, tables, books, and now the door looks so much more fun to him!
We ask him to just ask for paper and he can draw all he wants...but those fingers tell him to try other things. The other night, we were finishing up supper, and Caleb got down with a pen. A little while later, Nathaniel asked what Caleb was doing. Then, he realized that Caleb was writing on our door. Fortunately we have not painted, or finished the trim around the door yet. We are waiting to do that until after we paint our walls. So, Terry asked him what he was doing, and Caleb said, "Writting." Terry did not like that at all. After informing him (FOR THE MILLIONTH TIME) that he is not to write on anything other than paper, got him a wash cloth with water and soap.
Caleb had to wash all the marks off the door. As he was doing this, he started saying that his arm hurt and he didn't want to do this anymore. Then Terry said, "Well you should think about that the next time you want to write on the door. Where should you write on, Caleb?" Then, he said, "Only on paper." Today is the third day that he has gone without writting on non-paper items...we will see how long this lasts. I think I will buy him an Aquadoodle or a Doodle pro for his birthday. *grin*
