The Writing on the Wall

The other day Seth wrote on the wall for the first time. That is a serious offense in our house. I don't think he'll be doing that any time soon again! Another serious offense is lying. Tabitha is not learning her lesson as easily!

Anyway, he wrote with chalk, so it was pretty easy to clean up. The two times that Tabitha colored on our colorless wall it was with crayon. After trying every cleaner in the house and failing I did some research. It came off almost effortlessly with this little trick. Take a damp rag and dip it in baking soda. Rub away and it's gone! (I believe that's the secret ingredient in the Magic Eraser that they sell).

Baking soda rocks! You can use it to clean almost anything...just add a little water to make a paste, use a rag, and voila! It's cheap cleaner.

We've been lucky because our kids never wrote on the walls. Phoenix, on the other hand, has drawn with a permanent marker on our sheets, and he has colored his body with markers as well.

On the lyinig front, Willik is having some trouble of his own!!
