Nearly two months have passed since her birthday, and the chalk board sees daily use. We affixed two pencil cups next to the board, one for chalks, one for “unrasers” (I love the words nearly-5s come up with!) We have learned that white chalk is not nearly so distressing as colored chalk when it has been digested. We have learned that yes, Lefty seems to be a lefty. She will join one cousin in being sinister, and I may have to brush up my ambidextrous ways to teach her to write later.
And yes, we have been enjoying the fact that her off-board tagging is now removable with a damp cloth. Notice her artistic additions to the hearth just after Christmas:
Lefty the Tagger remains unrepentant.
