but where does he find them?

Let me tell you a story.

Once upon a time there was a Mummy and a Daddy whose only child, a little girl, was six years old. So the Mummy and the Daddy decided to replace their old, ugly sofas with new, lovely ones. Because their little girl was a very sensible child, they thought they could get away with buying one deep aubergine coloured sofa, and one...cream...sofa.

Fast forward four or so years, and their little girl was ten, and their semi-surprise (that's another post) little boy was two. And one day, the little boy found a ball-point pen. So he did some "dorwee"* with the pen. On the sofa.

The purple one?

Noooooo, of course not! It wouldn't be nearly as satisfying to draw on a purple sofa as a cream one, would it?

So the Mummy tried a few methods of cleaning it. Sadly, none of them worked. And she put ALL the pens in the house up high, well out of reach. Then, a few days later, she went downstairs to get the mail. On her return, she saw that the little boy had produced more "dorwee". Where?

On the cream sofa, of course.

There's a photo coming, as soon as I find my USB cord. It's up high somewhere.

*The Toddler has very limited words. "Dorwee" is one of them. "Mummy" is not.


  1. Oh I can totally relate! I have two boys, 1 and 3, and they always somehow find things I put up high!
