My son loves to color. In fact, we have to carefully monitor all writing utensils within the house. Recently he saw me writing on our dry erase board and wanted a try. So, I found an old picture frame with a plexiglass cover and a white background and let him draw on it with our oldest dry erase marker (Although I haven't taught in a school in over 2 years, I still have a fondness for my dry erase markers). I gave him his own paper towel and showed him how he could clean it himself and start over...of course this was an instant hit! With careful "stay on the board" instructions I let him go and color his heart out. I even got to do the dishes without him crawling in the dishwasher!!! He was busy coloring away, and I had put my toothbrush holder in the dishwasher, so what did I do? I thought, "he'll be fine for a moment while I go put this in the bathroom." I was gone for seconds, milli-seconds even. And what happened? Pablo Picasso saw an opportunity and went for the wall.
Sure, he looks innocent enough

I'm a wife, a mom, a child of God. I'm a dog-lover, a dreamer, a shopper. I'm a SC GAMECOCK football fan! I'm an e-bayer, a reader, a lover, a graduate. I can be stubborn and nagging. I can be sweet and compassionate. I love singing in the car, and dancing in the kitchen. I love it when my little boy plays air guitar, and when my daughter sings her ABC's. I love old friends, new friends, and the memories shared with both. I love walking on the beach at night, and the sound of waves. I love laughing so hard that my stomach hurts and tears come out of my eyes. I'm thankful I got to go to college, I fell in love with someone who loves me, I have a handsome son, and a precious baby daughter. I'm thankful for flowers in the Spring, and Florida in January. I love getting pedicures, going to musicals, dressing up for no reason. I love it when my husband tells me I'm pretty, when my children laugh and say "I love you". I love it when my dog gets excited after I've been gone for two minutes. Most of all, I love Jesus and I'm glad He loves me...I wouldn't be anywhere without that.
