Fun with Markers

"Mom! Do you smell a smelly marker that smells?"

"Mommy... do you want to smell the smelly yellow?!"

Great... my five year old is in the other room sniffing markers...



Relax... the brown smells like root beer, the yellow smells like lemon... we're not talkin' huffin certain very potent smelling markers...

I have a marker that smells like Grape Nehi. It's my happy pen. I also have a big ass black Sharpie and that's my angry pen. Using my variety of regulation-sized Sharpies to do some drawing today, I realized that they are my headache-inducing pens.

I always loved the smeel of the purple/grape markers.

Mama Zen said...

And, then you get a marker shoved up your nose! Come on, Mom, smell!

Markers that smell like food items = the reason you can always see traces of ink around C's mouth after drawing/coloring time. I'm just sayin.'

They sound brilliant. I just love the regular markers. Not that I'm suggesting they play with them or anything. It does keep them quiet though... ;)

Smelly markers are still not the great invention that WASHABLE MARKERS are. That was a boon to mankind. Some days, we had "Draw on Mom's Legs Contests", and each kid got a leg. One day the contest was to make it scary; one day it was to make it look pretty; one day, funny. It used to keep those two boys busy for a long time! (And I could read or watch TV or even, if I was behind, fold laundry!)

Sharkey - Really?! How fun!

Claudia - Hee hee

Bone - You've thought way too much about this.

William - Me too. And strawberry.

Mama Zen - I do what I can to prevent that from happening.

Eclectic - Noooo... really?

Platy - My favorite idea is the "Color Wonder" markers. GENIUS!

Nance - You're a way cool Mom. I have never thought of that.

Apathy Lounge - It was, wasn't it?

are they Mr. Sketch?

Bone Machine said...

I'd like to think that I am just very focused, but apparently I need to invest in a life.

Circus Kelli said...

Annejelynn - Nope, they're knockoffs. :)

Bone - Lives are overrated. I've heard that somewhere...
