what's in a name...

what's in a name? well, trouble, when it comes to paige...
not in a really bad way, but in a "destructive" way. some things never change, you know...

paige was "that" kid...the one that followed directions the first time. almost never had to be reminded of rules anywhere. she was polite and darling, looking very much like a precious moments little girl with her big brown eyes and her toe head blonde hair.

one thing...the one thing that paige did {okay, there were two...but more on that at a later time} was write her name on everything!

my handmade natural, unfinished leather couch...scratched her name right in the side of it. then, said she didn't do it. hello...your name was the clue.

the bathroom wall...lysol-ed a big arrowed heart with "her bio dad's name + mom"...then said she never touched the lysol. the smell didn't evacuate for 3 months...and we had to repaint the wall in the end to cover it up.

so you know that when ryan was installing carpet on the steps on sunday and he came across this...he was delighted and grabbed the camera:

and, she admitted to doing it! so some things are starting to settle in.

so proud of herself, she even asked for a shot of her masterpiece.
{don't you love trashed garage? great background}
so, if dr. phil is right, and the past is the best predictor of the future, i am predicting that when paige has her own place, there will be a zen/carpet-garden rake in her living room to scratch her name in the rug when she gets the hankering. future husbands...beware.
{it's really stinking cute, though, isn't it?}

Funny! I think I used to do that too!

Denise K. said...

Oh now that is just hilarious and SO cute! What a beauty she is too! I think it shows self confidence and pride in her name and who she is...now watch, in a few years you will start seeing, "I love...so and so..." I wrote, "I love..." on folders, papers, the inside of a closet, etc...luckily this habit is easily outgrown! hee hee :-)

Carrie and Troy Keiser said...

Aren't kids great?! I've got one who also love to jot down her name or a nice picture on any surface.... course she's 4! :)

He And Me + 3 said...

That is too funny. She does look very proud of her accomplishment & yes, it does look pretty cool.
Atleast she is not writing I love... everywhere. I can definitely wait for those days.

Amber said...

Oh my goodness, so cute!! I used to do the same thing. Not on the couch or anything, but I wrote my name on everything I could! :)

She is so cute!

Briony said...

Megan said...

Tracy is ... Loving Pretty Things said...

Bee and Rose said...

I love it! My daughter has a small zen garden and rakes her name in it all the time!

Paige is a creative soul!

Mandy said...

Too funny! Part of my post has the same line, "what's in a name!" Great minds think alike!

And that is cute!

PJ said...

Cute, but artistic too!

Michelle said...

That is too funny and I used to do the same thing. :)

Tabitha in Bliss said...

LOL!! Too funny!!

blueviolet said...

You warned all future prospects so you've done all you can do. ;)

Karen said...

My Wild Child could be Paige's name writing twin. She has carved her name into the wall in the bathroom next to the toilet, she has written it on a silk lamp shade, and the list goes on.

Kimmy said...

Too cute!!! :o)

The Blonde Duck said...

She's like a little puppy marking her territory--but in a much cuter way!

Kacey R. said...

That is too funny. Remind me if ya'll ever come to visit to hide all sharpie's, pens, crayons, etc. That way I won't have a souvenier with "Paige was here." LOL I guess she could write on the sofa though...Ryder has already got a hold of that one. :D

Jen said...

well, she is right. you just gotta write your name on things so that ppl know.

Shellie said...

That is cute. I bet she will do that. At least she doesn't do this with a permanent marker on anything and everything.

Ryan Ashley Scott said...

It is totally stinking cute! Funny about the lysol, too. :)

Kel said...

Well at least she likes it...my oldest is always trying to find a new name for herself, like crystal and lala...go figure?!?!

Susan said...

It IS cute!
Though I am sure the couch incident was much less so.

Alex the Girl said...

Very stinkin cute.

Domestically Disabled Girl said...

i need to talk to her. when i was young? I would scratch my BROTHER's name on stuff, not mine. Then, I could blame him. However, the time I spelled brain instead of Brian, I was caught. Silly me.

Fresh Mommy said...

Haha, that's too funny. Well, at least you'll always know where she's been!
