the negatives

There is a positive to having taught Henry to write the first two letters of his name. He can recognize them in different words he sees and he has a sense of pride! It is very impressive to me that he picked up on the writing of these letters so quickly.
The negative side of Henry knowing how to write these two letters is that he "forgets" that doing so should only be done on paper that I give him and only with writing utensils that I deem appropriate. Thus, the door to his room and a permanent marker is not acceptable!

Uh-Oh! On the bright side, that is impressive! Sean isn't even that good yet!

Yep! That's Henry and the yellow crayon/black marker!

Mr. Clean Magic Eraser might work for that. My daughter wrote on her bedroom wall once when she was 2 and the magic eraser took it right off (along with a little paint though; you'd have to be careful with that).
