Comments I Want Crayons
I Want Crayons: 04/15/05
Last night Sean bowled me over by announcing that before dinner he wanted to color with crayons. He normally wants to play with musical toys or instruments or read books so his request to color came as quite a surprise. He and I spent a lovely half an hour while Ian barbecued coloring pictures at the kitchen table.
Sean first drew something that reminds me of a very colorful sunset while I drew a tropical fish. He would sometimes announce, "Time to trade colors" and hand me his crayon. I in turn had to give him my crayon. Later we both drew frogs. I need to scan the pictures to show what we did.
Later I had to step away from the table. When I got back, Sean was coloring on my fish drawing. He gave me a big smile and said, "Ok mama, I finished your fish drawing. It's all done now."
When we were done Sean wanted the honor of putting away the crayons. Since we keep them on a tall shelf, I had to hold him up so he could reach.
