Have you ever received a gift that just didn’t quite meet your expectations? Or maybe you’ve given one that was considered ‘less than’. I think we all have! When that happens, I think the best thing we can do is look for the positive. That ‘positive thing’ may be the thought behind the gift, the relationship you have with the giver, or a whole host of other things that I could list but won’t. 🙂
Today is Valentine’s Day. The day of love! People all across the world are giving and receiving gifts to show how much they care about one another. I received a few fun gifts and cards this morning myself, but one was a little unexpected, and not exactly what I was hoping to receive.
The little girls were having fun with some Valentine’s Day themed stickers.
I also allowed them to use some fun, pint-sized markers.
When they were done, stickers, markers, and construction paper were everywhere, so I began to move the furniture around, sweeping up and putting everything to rights.
Which is when I noticed this.
Yeah. Someone went to the naughty step. I texted my husband and he gave me a ‘trick’ to try.
Here is the mark that I found on the shelf under the coffee table.
Yes, that is dry erase marker.
Doesn’t make sense does it?
I had to apply the marker and wipe it off about 3 times, and all of it did not come off, but our white coffee table at least looks a little better.
If nothing else, this will be an excuse to paint the bottom black in order to coordinate with our black end table that is the one ‘outsider’ in the room.
You may be asking, what’s my positive?
While misguided and definitely naughty, it looks as if someone may have been trying to write her name.
I clearly see an ‘M’!
