You have two choices

When you have imaginative, creative, and active children, you really only have two choices: get angry, or laugh and take a picture.

This was last year.  The turtle was 8 and the monkey 3.  I was downstairs resting.  A rare moment.  They were being quiet.  I knew this was a mistake.  I went upstairs and this picture shows what I found.  I really could have lost it.  I mean, an 8 year old knows better.  I didn't lose it.  I laughed and took a picture.  Now, I don't always laugh.  I lose it.  More than I care to admit.  It takes great prayer in moments like this to realize that they are safe.  And (praise God!) is was washable marker.  Although, washable marker still takes a few days to completely come off.  My kids are very creative and imaginative.  Together, they are rarely bored.  But with that, really does come testing.  I think he was a pirate and she was a raccoon or tiger.

On weeks where I know we are having 'good pictures' taken, I hide anything that leaves a mark!  Just kidding! (Sort of!)
