Last week's speaker at my mom's group shared a technique for memorizing Scripture and leaving notes for the kids: Write it on the mirror with a dry erase marker.
Do you see the problem, yet?
I didn't, either.
Five minutes ago I wrote "You are loved! :-)" and drew a big square on the kids' bathroom mirror (you know, so they'll be in the "loved" box).
Beaming with maternal pride, I marveled at my handiwork and then... realized it looked like MARKER.
You know what happens when you write on a mirror with a dry erase marker when you have preschoolers in the house?
You know, don't you?
They think their markers are okay to use on the mirrors... the walls... the furniture...
Visions of a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser cleaning frenzy filled my eyes and before you could say, "we don't use markers to color the walls," I snatched up a towel and wiped away the love box.
Maybe someday the kids will get love notes from me on their mirror. That day is not today.
