Wash this!

As a parent, we all can appreciate it when our child is quietly playing in their room, allowing us a chance to take a moment to relax......but then there are the times when you realize things are "too quiet," and something other than "play" must be going on.   This was my moment/reality about an hour ago.  I was able to take a break from playing and cleaning and enjoy a moment of silence.....until I went to check on my daughter.  She looked up at me with her big brown eyes and just smiled as if she created a masterpiece.....except this was all over her legs and arms!!!!  I breathed a sigh of relief that she was using the "washable markers."  That didn't last, because after I put her in the tub, I realized the word "washable" was deceiving.  I was frustrated that the marker was so dark on her legs, that it wouldn't wash off....only to have my daughter then look up at me again to ask me if she could now paint.   oh boy!!!
