Color Time FunI love writing. I have loved writing since I was a young child and it has always helped me to get over various things in my past. My children love drawing. Each of my children know, a their own level and interpretation, what I do for a living from home and each are curious in their own way about it. I am blessed that I have creative children but I think it’s because they have a creative Mom. I must admit my children draw way better than me and have way better story title ideas than I do, but we have fun on rainy days together.

When there is no time to go outside or the weather sucks, the kids and I head into the living room to have some fun with paper, crayons and pencils. The kids love when I draw with them or color, honestly they just love that I am there, even if it’s me listening or watching them do their thing the paper, pencils and crayons.

I had a blast on this particular day, shown in pictures, because my sons wanted to make a book. I didn’t have staples left for my stapler so I had to get creative… use my three whole puncher and extra binders with printer paper to make them a “book”. The boys were so happy with me, because not only did I use what I could to make them a “book” to draw and color in, but I did it in a way that allows for them to add more paper down the road. They were happy!

My son, Aj, tried to convince me to draw a King because he wanted to write a story about a King with all These Weapons. My son Aj is the one who will always first try to get someone else to do something for him, however, with a little bit of encouragement and him realizing you are not doing things for him, he will do it and man did it come out rather good for a child who barely draws pictures at home.

    I like the drawing. I used to write and make books, tying them with yarn when I was little. 🙂
