That was the subject of the email I received from Melody's teacher on Tuesday.
And attached was this picture
When I picked her up from school, the blue had become more of a blue tint as she had been sent to the bathroom to clean up. I'm not exactly sure how she got "color on your face" from "you may sit at your desk quietly and read, color, or rest". Apparently, she thought "color" was subjective.
We get home later that evening and I send her upstairs to take a bath and (hopefully) wash the rest of the blue off.
I walk into the bathroom as she's undressing and see this
After expressing my surprise and reiterating yet again what markers are purposed for, she continues to undress. She removes the rest of her clothing and turns around to toss her clothes in the hamper.
There another picture involved however I'm not going to post it. It would be highly inappropriate to post a picture of my daughter's bottom. Even it is totally covered in bright blue marker.
That little stinker even managed to sneak the marker into the bathroom to finish off her masterpiece.
You might be wondering what ever happened to the marker? Yeah, I have no idea and, quite honestly, really don't want to!
*And I stand corrected. Apparently, she managed to do all this damage very quietly in the classroom. When asked how she managed to color her fanny without getting up, she said she just, "dug in".*
