So anyway, he had it in the bathroom, which Kiddo seems to think is her personal library and apparently art studio. When we discovered the horns and other doodles all over the cover of this magazine on Monday evening, she got a very stern lecture on vandalism and got sent to bed with neither a story nor tv time.
Unfortunately, it's not the first thing she's ruined through vandalism (including a couple of incidents in kindergarten class involving other childrens' artwork).
Of course, when confronted, she immediately said "Sorry! I'm sorry!" which is one thing that has always ticked us off -- the "it's-easier-to-apologize-than-ask-permission" route. So, she got another lecture on that, too.
Which apparently did not sink in, as last night she got home from her immunizations with stickers that she immediately stuck to furniture in the living room!! AAAGH.
We really hate having to lecture her, but we won't tolerate the behaviour either. Hopefully she won't rebel and become Victoria's breakout grafitti artist of 2017.
