Golly I can't believe how long it had been since I last did one of these.
Generally when we do coloring I prefer to use crayons. It is less mess and I don't have to worry as much about a child running off with a marker to do some extracurricular coloring. When we were making valentines I decided to break out the washable Crayola markers. Harry got so freaked out when he got marker on him. He insisted that I washed his hands off the second that the tiniest bit of marker touched him. I think that the markers are gonna go back in hiding until he stops being a neat freak. It was an interesting change from Evan who loves to play tattoo parlor. While I was looking for that post to link to I found this post, if it does not make you go aww I am not sure what will.
I checked out a potty book for Evan in the hopes that maybe it would raise potty awareness in him. It is titled Once Upon A Potty. Evan is not really more into potty training but he enjoys having a laugh at the pictures of the boy's "wee-wee". I have told him that it is not polite to laugh at another guy's manly parts, but of course I am ignored as he giggles away.
On a side note, if anyone has good potty training book recommendations (for kids, I already know how to go on the potty) I am open. I have taught my kids the proper anatomical names for their body parts, so I was rather annoyed that the book used the word "wee-wee" instead of the proper name.
If you were wondering what happened to my lovely purple sock I am sad to announce that it has been the victim of poor planning. I did not read the yardage requirements in the pattern. I have 275 and the pattern called for 400 so I would have been able to make one sock and maybe a few inches of another even with my shorter cuff. The poor sock had to be frogged. I have a much shorter sock with short row heels in mind. I have been wanting to try a short row heel and I was not really in love with how the flap heel was looking with the yarn colors.
