  • My kids would have a great future as tattoo artist! Sadly it isn't just my little ones but my teens do it also. It bothers some people but it really doesn't bother me.

  • My 2yo son does it whenever he has markers. I tell him not to but I honestly dont mind it because Id rather it be on him and I can just put him in the tub than it be all over the walls.

  • One of my kids did it once, and I think I scared them so they wouldn't do it again. I kept washing the hand that had magic marker on it because it wouldn't come off. I really didn't want my kid to eat with it on it.
