Show Me A Sign

Morgan, like most toddlers, has always had a love of pens and pencils and paint.  She started with watercolors, which was great because they conveniently washed off of every unintended surface. Like the walls, and the couch, and the dog.

As her skills progressed, she moved on to actual art projects-

And eventually upgraded to markers-

And then, when she quit trying to draw mustaches on me (the one I've got is bad enough), we let her use a pen. With real ink.  Like the kind that won't wash out.

Wouldn't you know it, she actually figured out what to do with it.  At 3 1/2, she can write my name, her name, and just about anything else you're willing to spell for her (yes, I have resisted the urge to have her spell curse words...for now) -

You've come a long way, baby.
