So I was just coloring with the kids, because I'm a good mom like that (not really, it was just this once), and would you believe I still suck at coloring?
What is it about staying between the lines that I have such difficulty with? I also can't apply even pressure. Kathy's 4 year old can color better than I can. The kid is a kick ass colorer though.
However, my inability to stay between the lines didn't stop me from nagging Big Kid about his:
Ashley: Did you do this one or did little kid?
Big Kid: I did dat.
Ashley: Oh, it's really good but you need to work on staying in the lines.
Big Kid: (looks at me, goes back to coloring)
Ashley: Did you hear me?
Big Kid: Yep.
Ashley: Well can you say something back to me when I talk to you, so I know you heard me?
Big Kid: I would but I don't hab nofing to say about it, 'bout you not likin' me not colorin' in da lines. I didn't say anyfing about when you colored da dalmation bwown.
Ashley: Yes, you did, actually you said a lot about it.
Big Kid: Oh well den, it's not a big deal, bemember?
I guess it's really not a big deal. I don't think my inability to color within the lines has affected me much as an adult.
(I also really DIDN'T need math.)
