The better questions might be, why is Vance obsessed with eating markers? Let me tell you how today's victim went down. I was looking in the upstairs hall closet for something. Tanner was sitting on the floor next to me playing with a toy and Vance was standing next to me. I thought he was watching me, but... well, let's just say he wasn't. He found a marker, a BLACK marker and was eating it. I'm not kidding, biting the tip of of the fatty marker and everything. Of course, I was busy looking away and when I looked down this face was looking up at me. Aaaah! I thought he would grow out of this stage of wanting to eat markers or learn his lesson, but apparently neither has happened. This time though, I promptly took him into my bedroom and showed him what he looked like. He did not like that, he tried to hide in my leg and was scared. I took the opportunity to give him a lecture then we washed his face and brushed his teeth about five times.
Yes, this is indeed his tongue, people. It's crazy.
Personally, I don't think he should go for the black make-up look, do you? Gross!!!! Everytime he does this to himself I think, "Well, at least he didn't do it to Tanner." Then I promptly look on wood. Tanner can do it to himself, like we already know! My crazy children...
I plan on posting more about our pizza week on my Mommy's Little Helper blog so if you are interested in that take a look there.
