We've done flour, powdered sugar, food coloring, chocolate syrup...all sorts of fabulous mess. But one of the most memorable was Sharpie. Everywhere. Never figured out how she even found a Sharpie, but at 2 1/2 my daughter was feeling very artistic and in less than five minutes somehow drew on the kitchen island, the banister, walls in the dining room, hallway and her bedroom, and for her true masterpiece-the dog. Yep, our sweet patient dog.
