Art Removal

While cleaning the kitchen, Riley asks, “Mom, can you do me a favor?”

Um, what? A favor? Don’t I work for you full time?

But okay, I’ll bite. “Sure, honey, what would you like?”

“Can you please remove this art from my arms?”

{I instantly grew steaming mad as I was sure she had gotten another marker (surely left out by the 10 year old) and drawn all over herself.}



The art. She wants the art removed from her wrists.

She’s since pointed out my art and thinks it should also be removed.

How do I explain to this kid that if I remove it, we cease to exist?

She’s cool with it now, but expect her to point yours out next time she sees you…And to ask if you know how to remove it since mom is clearly an idiot.
