The walls are his coloring board
Why, out of all the many writing utensils we have laying around, does 2 yr old only want to use the permanent markers? Seriously? He can have crayons, pens, pencils, colored pencils, washable markers, etc all in reach, but instead he has to climb on top of the desk or even entertainment center to get to the permanent markers. Is he already wanting to leave his mark on the world? Or maybe he thinks I need the exercise running after him then scrubbing the walls, floors, books, and him down? We go through Mr. Clean Magic Erasers faster than they can produce them! We should buy stock in it. And those Scotch Brite rip-offs? They aren't worth the foam crap they are made with, seriously, they just aren't up to cleaning 2yr old's messes. They fall to pieces in surrender. I'm thinking of either painting the walls black so you can't see where he colors, or fixing giant pads of paper to all the walls so I can just rip off a used one and have a clean wall again. Hm, disposable walls...nah, probably wouldn't work.
