Goodbye Spongebob

When we moved into our current house almost a decade ago I let one wall of our living room turn into a drawing wall. The kids were free to cover it in scribbles. At the time it was fun.

Now with a move looming I'm now having to clean all the marker and crayon residue off the walls so we can paint and it's a much sadder process then I thought it would be.

One of my most favourite works of art was on that wall. Here it is:



Catherine did it when she was 5 or 6.

I nearly cried as I scrubbed Spongebob off the wall.

awww - I kinda know what you mean...we'd only been in our old place for 4 years, but there was still a lot of "stuff" ....attachments, memories...the height marks on the kitchen wall, the permanent mud bog in the backyard from the kids with the hose every summer, things that ...eh...yeah.

You got a picture of spongebob - frame it. ;-)

I was thinking the same thing :)

That said, it is such a cute drawing. I think I would have cried, too.
