This post is for all of you out there who enjoy children's art: their uninhibited freedom of expression, pure design, their simple unadulterated technique, and reckless abandon of the house rules.

As I told you in the last post, we refer to this artistic child as "The Funny Funny." And funny she is. She doesn't wait to be entertained, she makes up her own fun, and loves to make her older brother laugh.

Well this is a direct quote from her older brother upon seeing what she had done to the wall...

I had just gone through the house and cleaned up all the stray pens, to prevent exactly just this from happening. I missed one. I am tempted to have my children grow up in a house with absolutely no writing utensils. That will show them!

i like how she looks like she banshed to the scene of the crime to show remorse for what she did, in the first picture

That was a great post.

Hide the pens and one day your child will poke his/her eye out with a contraband pen found on the sidewalk one day.

She will start hording the pens a and penils in her bed like my silly girl.
At least she hasn't gotten to the point where she scribbles and signs her siblings name to evade punishment. (too bad kim couldn't spell her name yet so I was still in big trouble.)
