Kids are going to make messes. There's no way around it. The only question is, how bad is that mess going to be? Some messes are annoying to clean up but not permanent, others are more of a disaster (including things that can't be removed or fixed but instead need to be repainted or replaced). At the very tippee top of the list of awful child-related messes are the ones that involve a Sharpie. Because, as everybody knows, Sharpies are as permanent as a marker can get.
In this video from @athomewithjenna, we see a mess of truly tragic proportions: Pristine white cabinets and pale grey walls, all covered with Sharpie scribbles. Oh, no. No, no, no.
As the mom wrote, "You would think that he would have at least waited until after Santa came to run amuck with the Sharpie all over the house."
The fact that this mom used "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" as the music for this clip shows that she at least has a sense of humor about it. What else are you going to do about it? You can laugh, or you can cry (I mean you could seriously cry about this one), and it's much better for everyone's sake if you go with laughter.
Commenters had many similar horrifying experiences to share, of destroyed sofas and red slashes all over a brand new house and more. All of them were horrified on behalf of this mom...
"BRB, gonna go throw away every sharpie in the house"
"i'm convinced it was elf on the shelf"
"Where do we send the wine?!"
"Really got into the crevices too"
"Christmas has been canceled"
"Crest toothpaste. 4 boys. Been there."
"Oh, Magic Eraser, please work your magic"
The moral of this story...ban Sharpies? Honestly, they'd find another way to destroy everything.
