Mamas, please tell me I'm not the only one?

After getting laid off from the pandemic I've been home for 3 months now without any type of breaks, its get up cook clean all day and without having a sitter for my husband and I to have alone time. I wake up today feeling sick and overwhelmed (not corona) to see my little one has scribbled permanent marker EVERYWHERE. I broke down and cried, told my husband to come home because i was going to lose it.

My kid got permanent marker all over our white quartz cointertop this week... kids are quick. Rubbing alcohol did the trick. Sorry this happened to you, I know I lost it, and my kid is only 2.

I know on certain surfaces, colouring over permanent marker with easy wipe marker can lift it - try that next time 😊 Mums do a lot - taking care of the family and the home is a big job. See if the grandparents can give you a break for a few hours. I did read your post as "without having a sitter for my husband" - I was thinking men are hard work but I don't know if mine needs a sitter hehe 😄

I believe there’s something on amazon called pink putty that helps get this stuff off! I would definitely look into it!
