So, does anyone know how to get crayon out of fabric (specifically a cotton/nylon/spandex blend)?
Sarah decided to colour on my light grey skirt that I had layed out for church this morning.
If any of you read Christa's blog you will see on the right hand side how she has been adding "Items Boone has tried to eat/has eaten" (Boone's their puppy dog).
I'm thinking I may need to add a column entitled "Items Sarah has Coloured On":
Easel (not the paper on the easel, the easel itself)
Our new leather ottoman
Her clothing (mostly the sleeves of her shirts...??)
Mommy's clothing (as stated above)
Mommy's scrapbook paper
Books (that are not "colouring" books)
Glass panes in our french doors
Surprising, crayon does INDEED mark on these items. I thought we were safe with crayons and only markers would do such "damage".
And now, don't get me wrong. I am very excited about Sarah's new found love of crayons. I love colouring myself and often get caught up in scribbling and drawing cartoons and such. And I believe I have been very patient and understanding about my soon-to-be-2-year-old sorting out the wrongs and rights of crayon etiquette. I didn't even get upset about the skirt. In fact, I still wore it to church. (who has time to pick out a new outfit on a sunday morning?)
However, some pointers are appreciated if any of you have experience with this phase of toddlerhood. (my sister did tell me the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser and the stuff you use to wash your hands without water...in the little bottle you can put in your purse...what's that called?...um, mommy brain not working...oh yes, ok, the anti-bacterial hand cleanser, that's what I'm trying to say...that's supposed to take stuff off surfaces too but I don't have any so I haven't tried it).
So far, knock on wood, Sarah has not coloured on the walls. Surprising! I am anxiously awaiting the day.
