This evening I noticed Natalie had pen all over her legs and also on her arms. I started to inquire about how that happened and asked if she had drawn on anything else. This is the discussion that followed:
Natalie: "I'm not going to show you." (Using her hands and arms to shield the pen marks on her legs.)
Me: "Natalie, did you draw on anything else?"
Natalie: "Mom go finish working on dinner." (I had been in the kitchen before this.)
Me: "Tell me please where you were when you did this. Did you draw on anything else?"
Natalie: "Don't ask! Don't ask mom."
At this point I started to laugh. Ironically, after inspecting the house I didn't find any additional damage. Her cuteness really impedes my disciplining lately.
