My Daughter Loves To Color

She looks so innocent coloring her masterpiece with washable markers, while her baby brother looks on and her mother blissfully cooks dinner in peace. Ah the sound of silence.

Leave her unsupervised for a few minutes, and look what happens.

Oh, and washable markers? They lie.

One thing I have learned is that as soon as it is quiet enough to hear yourself think, you had better run and find the kids! Certainly, silence is a bad omen in a house full of little ones, even as cute as those two are.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! I am so glad my kids aren't the only ones! What a great photo op! Just think you could always tell your kids how they "color your world!" LOLOLOLOL (Now off to find the wipes so I can wipe down my monitor) L

Oh boy! This is definitely a "flash-forward" to a scene at my house about 4 months from now!

Yeah, that whole 'washable' tag is a misnomer, but thanks for the laugh. I really needed one today. My 3 year-old prefers to color herself more than her baby sister. Don't ask about the time my son got his hands on the food coloring bottles when he was much younger and the aforementioned three year-old was a baby.

The baby seems to have appreciated having a little colour added to his day :-) Have to say, your kids are awfully cute :-)

Your daughter gave me a laugh Chris. It is such a horible job trying to get the scribbles off anything. We have had several library books that have had my son's artistic interpretations in them with his textas and one very expensive one from a local academic library. I did find his scribbles on my rather beautiful scenic caldner a bit much to bear recently. I have hidden them only to be used with supervision.

Aaaaagh! This would definitely happen in my house, except that markers accidently disappear immediately after well meaning grandparents give them to my children. I tell them, beg them and implore them only to give pencils and crayons, but markers still arrive regularly. Ooops, did those fall in the trash?

LOL Markers are evil! I love the baby's face though, I bet he enjoyed every minute. :)

Maybe you should have her color on him more often. He looks quite happy. Perhaps that's the cure for colic?
