This week when Isaac was over for the day there was energy pulsing in the hot AZ air.
I was working on a project and Isaac was playing sweetly somewhere near. Has it really been that long since I had a three year old "sweetly playing near"?
I Found THIS...
Yep, you would be right that is my leather couch and it has silver sharpie all over it, at least on that one cushion and arm.
I didn't scream, yell, or anything like it. I remembered to breath, I remembered that I have never taught him that we don't draw on the couch. We wiped it clean together, (as clean as you can get silver sharpie off a leather couch). Did you know Goof-Off can get sharpie out of leather? (mostly).
Yes, we had a big long talk about how we don't ever color on the couch and we never ever use sharpies without permission.
Breaking the cycles of abuse feels good.
