Synonym for ironic
If I had just gotten her the damn Barbie doll like she wanted, I wouldn't have cared if she had tagged it with a permanent marker.
(Background here for new readers.)
I've gotten the tag down to a dull blue streak with polish remover and hair spray. It's good enough.
Note to my childcare provider (who is usually pretty good): If a child procures an item (for example a permanent marker) by having to use a stool to climb up on the counter and then has to reach into the back of the cabinet to procure said item, chances are that it is difficult for said child to procure said item FOR A REASON !!!
Note to TSM: Out of sight and out of reach is evidently NOT out of the mind of a 6 year old.
