A boy with a marker--not a good idea

So the other day I was sitting at the computer working on my blog. I must say, I tend to be pretty oblivious to my surroundings at times when I'm on the computer. After a while, I realized I'd been hearing a strange sound coming from behind me for quite a while. I decided to turn around and investigate--and there was Isaac sitting on my upholstered rocker recliner with a blue marker going to town on the chair. The seat and arm were covered with marker stains, and I had no idea how to get them out. Both Keith and my mom suggested I try a Magic Eraser, which seemed like a strange solution, but also a lot easier than dragging out the carpet cleaner, so I gave it a try. To my surprise, it worked like a dream, and the chair came clean. I love those things!
I made sure and took this picture when Isaac wasn't around to see--didn't want him thinking it was cute or something!

OH MAN! I hate it when stuff like that happens. Thank goodness for magic erasers, I love 'em! I've salvaged quite a few things with those.


We have had so many marker incidents... I hate when that happens! I had no idea that a magic eraser could work on upholstery. Good to know!

Wow, it brings back memories of Cy deciding to paint the walls with my mascara or getting polish on my carpet. I am glad he is out of that stage.
