Marble jar

Well we have marble jars at home for Monty and Ella. When we catch them doing something good or they do their chores without being reminded or go to bed good then they get some marbles, however if they are being naughty they have to take marbles out and once it is full they get to pick out a toy from the $ store. We went to the $ store to look around and they wanted some stuff I decided they could each pick out something but couldn’t get it until their marble jar was full. This morning was the big day!! Last night they went to bed good and after many weeks their marble jars were full!!!!!┬áMonty had picked out knight stuff and Ella picked out a little polly pocket type doll that had a stamp pad (she thought it was makeup). Calvin and her went to go play with her doll and she came out super excited to show me her “makeup”.

Do yo think we can get it off? Oh no. She has swim lessons today and I am now going to go try and remove it with baby oil.

Calvin is also full of this except its on his arms and legs and they also decided that Ollie needed a little. Actually Calvin did while I was trying to clean Ella up. Needless to say the ink is gone!

    yikes! rubbing alcohol is good for getting off ink, but maybe not close to her eyes! good luck. hopefully the pool water can get off whatever you can’t!

    You should tuck that ink pad away in case any of the kids want to be a clown for halloween. Tuck it FAR FAR AWAY…
