Taking it OFF!

Yesterday I had a great day to myself. Hubs took care of the Little guy and I pretty much played all day. Some of my play included registering at Babies R Us and Target - which I probably should have done months ago - but oh well. It's done now.

Anyway, when I got home Hubs and I were talking upstairs and Little One went downstairs. Pretty soon we heard him say "drawing! green!" and then the sound of a marker cap hitting the tile floor. We scooted downstairs. He had pushed his stool right up to the counter, grabbed a green sharpie out of my pen container and drew on the tile counter top. Hubs and I looked at each other.

"Do they make some kind of sharpie remover?" He asked.

Then I recalled a previous conversation that I had had with Carrie. She had told me that bug repellent - that's right, OFF or anything of the sort - will take permanent marker off. I ran to get our bug spray - sprayed the counter, and viola! It came right off using a paper towel! Easy as pie.

Hmm...so, it's okay to put something that removes permanent marker on our skin??

I got to tell two different people over the weekend about the Off removing Sharpie! I don't think anyone believed me, though! :-)
