Rite of passage

Well, it happened... 

Hampton found a Sharpie marker and by the time I found him (in the closet) he looked like this

And the closet door looked liked this

Brent was quite impressed with Hampton's penmanship and is convinced he really meant to write his name.  I will give him credit for the "H."  The "a" and cursive "r?"  I don't think so! Our almost three year old has never said his own name....however, he can pick out an "H" with the best of them :)

Anyway, a week later and his legs look like this...

I have to admit, it was really hard to be mad (and I wasn't).  For one thing, the reason he got caught when he did because Anne Lowry had shut his fingers in the closet doors so he was already crying....and number two, I feel like I got off really easy...I mean the back of the closet door, hallelujah!  Lastly, I feel like this is some sort of rite of passage to growing up and in a weird way I was kind of proud?!

Lest you think I've completely lost my mind....I did sternly tell Hampton that we are not suppose to write/draw on anything but paper and have adult supervision.

Or maybe I am slowly losing my mind being a stay at home mom???
