Guests who saw this were immediately aghast. 'Don't Draw On The Walls!' has been one of the most basic house rules and parenting commands in the glorious Parenting Handbook since the beginning of time. And we have... THIS???
Once, a friend even took to the wall with a scrubber and a bucket of water and detergent. Thank goodness I managed to stop her!

I guess what freaked out most of the guests was the fact that the act was completely consented. The higher drawings were in fact done by the kids while perched on their father's shoulders or sitting on their high chairs. Plus, that I don't clean the wall of old, dirty little hand prints and foot prints. Again, those are documentations!
Now that our boys are bigger, they don't draw on that wall anymore. They prefer paper --like boring, responsible adults. Lol!
But, once in a while, I do catch them getting in touch with their irreverent youth ...all over again.
