Tommy’s latest interest has been coloring. He lives to color. As soon as he wakes up for the day and after naps he asks, “Mommy, can I color?” I usually let him color as often and for as long as he wants because I’m happy he finally has an interest outside wheeled objects.
Side story about Tommy’s life-long obsession with cars/trucks/trains: We were at Aunt Cameron’s house the other morning, where because it is a girls’ house, there aren’t many cars lying around. I kid you not, the boy started driving the Etch-a-Sketch around the floor because the knobs looked like wheels to him. How’s that for obsessed? Finally Aunt Cameron took pity on him and pulled out her small stash of cars she keeps on hand for when the boys visit.
Here are some of Tommy’s recent coloring creations:
