Pack it up, Pack it in

Now that Sean's done with his Master's program and Merrick's out of school there's not really any reason for us to stay in New York. So I've been slowly cleaning up the house wherever I can starting with drawings on the walls which apparently was a preferred canvas for my children.

Merrick saw my super cool magic erasers and wanted to help with the cleaning so I directed him to this drawing that was sitting idle behind our dresser for the past two years. It was a drawing Merrick did when he was 3 (with chalk thank goodness) of a round guy with big hands. I loved it so much I didn't have the heart to erase it back then so we just put the dresser in front of it. But the time has come to get our apartment in order and so I moved the dresser and told him he could wipe the guy off. Well, apparently Merrick was in love with this drawing too, so he requested we keep the goofy guy up a little bit longer and his wish was granted. What can I say I'm a push over when it comes to my children's art.

Memphis does not like to be left out of anything. So when he saw me snapping some pics of Merrick and his drawing, Memphis came running in saying "Me too, me too" Hah classic Memphis.

Oh yes, for some reason boys like to draw on the walls. The magic eraser has become our best friend! Do you know where you are moving to?
