The Wonderful World of Color

daisy_knotwise bought Katie some new crayons and a coloring book when they went out to the Jewel this evening. When Katie presented me with the book and asked me to color, I carefully colored some sections inside the lines and asked her to color the sections in between.

"I can't do that. It's too hard."

"Sure, you can. Try it."

It wasn't a total success, but it went moderately well. Later, Julie woke up from her nap and found the crayons. I then had to dissuade her from making a glyph on each page of the book and moving on to the next page. Fortunately, she was distractable.

Later, I found random glyphs in orange crayon on the bathroom floor next to our bedroom. Gretchen informs me that Julie had possession of the still-missing orange crayon. Katie would like it back.

I wonder where it is.

And I'm so happy that we have washable crayons!
