What She Does When She’s Bored


She’s bored! Bored bored bored! Nothing to do. In spite of the 200 satellite TV channels, Nintendo DS, computer, 5000 cats, two dogs, and acres of woods and streams.


So she painted her face. Then she painted her jeans. Her new jeans. With permanent markers.

She’s not bored anymore, ha!

We planted: green beans, carrots, spinach, onions, corn, squash, peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, and assorted herbs and flowers.


I love spring!

    LOL—oh that is too good! And she doesn’t look to be three anymore!!! Oh man, I thought there was hope. 🙂 My youngest just took permanent marker to our entry way which of course we just finished painting… 😮 guess he figured he was helping….


  2. Susan says:

    It’s still to early to plant here, we are suppose to get frost tonight! :fryingpan:

    Your DD has a unique way to overcome boredom. 😆

    My dd does the same thing. She comes home from school with marker all over her shoes and pants.


  4. Toni Anderson says:

    LOL–did it come off? I wish I could plant things to eat! Unfortunately the dogs :snoopy: like wiping everything out or… well you don’t want to know the or 😕

    My 5yo is bored too. He came home from playing with the neighbor girl. “Hi Mom! I apparently didn’t have a good time!”

    Must hide the picture of your daughter’s face art from him.

    Yeah, I’m with the mommies who were hoping it was a phase they’d get over. *sigh*

    Yep. . . I’m really looking forward to 2.5 months at home with a bored teenager and two active preschoolers. :hissyfit: Perhaps we should move to the country and I could put them to work!Ha!
