Mental Note: Use a Pen When Writing Lists

Trixie likes all arts-n-crafts, but she loves pencils. She likes me to sharpen them and she likes the eraser — or at least the idea of it. I hadn’t really seen her erase anything very well until I came across my barely recognizable shopping list today. Trixie had carefully erased each item, and then for good measure she scribbled all over the rest of the page.

It wasn’t a spectacular list or anything — there were only three items: wipes, coffee filters and brita — but it’s really disturbing to find your work completely vanished.

    Oh, get ready! This is just the beginning!

    I’m sure you’ve already discovered the Color Magic markers by Crayola, and if you haven’t, now might be a good time. Pricey, yes. But, well worth it.

    On the bright side…she’s not eating the paper anymore. 🙂

    My wife had to request a replacement paycheck once after the first one became an art project. Be glad this was just a shopping list.
