When all is Quiet, Shit is going DOWN.

Yesterday I was relaxing on the couch enjoying a new series called “Devious Maids” when all goes incredibly quiet, and I’m wondering what the girls are up to.

I called them and Kaylin comes peeping around the corner to reveal the word “Hello!” written on her forehead with permanent marker, a very trendy mustache and a tattoo on her forearm.   


I called Meg (my older and supposedly more responsible one) and she came giggling around the corner thinking it was very funny.  I did think it was funny, but how funny is it if the game is totally one-sided, right?

I said “Ok, fair is fair – let's finish your game”.  

 I made Megan sit down and told Kaylin to go and fetch her permanent marker so that she could return the favour and sprinkle her 7 year old art all over her big sisters face.  

Megan was still giggling, obviously thinking that I wouldn’t go through with it.  I made her sit down in the chair and let Kaylin write what she wanted to on her forehead, let her draw a lovely mustache on her oldest sister and a forearm tattoo to match.

Meg was NOT impressed!

She kept wanting to run and squirm away, but I kept saying “its only fair that Kaylin gets to draw just as nicely on your face”.

When Kaylin was finished and turned Megan’s chair around so that I could see what she’d written, I nearly wet myself with laughter.  Kaylin had written the word “BUM!” on her forehead, drawn her a lovely bikers handle bar mustache and the forearm tattoo was the drawing of a bum.   I guess she wanted to write something offensive...well, as offensive as a 7 year old can get without getting into trouble.

Yip, Megan was mortified and couldn’t wait to go scrub it off.  I told her she had to remain in her seat until her sister had tried to scrub her face-art off.  It was only fair that Megan wait the same amount of time as Kaylin had to, right?  

Am I a cruel mum or what?

Megan scrubbed her forehead red-raw with the nail brush trying to get the ink off before school today.

Lesson learned? 

I think so.

Devious Lassies.

Good lesson but I am so glad I don't have kids to plague the life out of me.

That was a smart thing to do, mom! She'll know better next time.

That's awesome!
I have often threatened my kids with writing "DORK" on their heads when they do something that deserves it.

My pink terrorist often colours herself in as a zebra using those markers. Micro fibre cloth and some warm water gets that right know, if you feel like helping. ;-)

If you write chump and look in the mirror, it's still chump. (Joined up writing of course)

LOL That's some funny shizz. I definitely think the older sibling learned her lesson. And kudos to you for sticking to your guns on making sure the game wasn't one sided! :)

A fair mom that thinks on her feet. Well done
