What did I find on the wall of my bathroom the other day? Crayons!! Bella decided that the wall was a much better medium than her coloring book, apparently she snuck out of the office where the girls colors are and went into my bathroom and colored blue crayon all over the wall. I thought no problem, it'll come right off with some Windex....well I tried that and it didn't even smudge it...so I googled "how to clean crayon off walls" an came across this site, which gives you several cleaning solutions to try. One of the suggestions, which seemed the easiest and less messy was just a plain baby wipe. I thought wow that will be neat if it worked, and guess what? It did, just a little elbow grease and the crayon came right off....
Bella is my kinesthetic learner; she likes action and feeling, she'll put markers in her mouth, on her legs and any where but the paper. She was coloring the other day and I heard this strange sort of spitting noise. I went to check it and there's Bella with a book, spitting on it and using the spit to moisten her marker so that it would write...interesting right? With food, it's even worse. Lizzie at age 19 months was very particular about getting messy, she was like a little bird eating, very carefully trying to not get food on her hands and around her mouth, Bella is just the opposite, she'll stick her finger in any mushy sauce and side. She'll then rub her hair with it....oh the joys of motherhood!! I wouldn't have it any other way!!
