Destruction of my Home #2,410
A pre-child purchase of ours was a big over sized leather chair for our family room. It is an okay chair with a matching ottoman. It is made out of a really soft leather that shows marks and a lot of distress. That is fine. However, had I known that one day I would have little boys that would use their fingernails (or Tinker Toys) to scratch Tic Tac Toe games into my chair, I would have reconsidered. Very annoying...
What is more annoying is when they scratch their name into the chair and then lie about who did it. Uh, boys, I recognize your handwriting! They have not become so clever that they forge another's name on the chair. Yet.
And if that wasn't bad enough...
I had to go behind the chair to clean something (shocking) and found this lovely picture scratched into the backside of the chair.
It has probably been back there for a long time, but I don't clean too often as you can imagine. I work hard to buff out the stuff on the arms of the chair.
This one is not coming out.
