Everynight I color with Ethan. It’s after dinner and bath. But before books. We “print out”. It means finding goggle images to copy onto a word document…..and print out to color together. And he usually wants to do “what we did today”. So parks or kayaking or bikes or farmers market, etc
We usually color between 4-8 pages a night. We print out double because we each color the same one. And then we talk during it. He picks all his own colors, he does it all himself. Sometimes we keep them “to hang up at work” and other times he wants to mail them to someone.
We talk about a lot of random things. But this time was interesting.
Ethan what’s your favorite color?
I dunno. All of dem. Even white.
What’s your friend’s JJ’s favorite color?
I don’t ask that to her before? We talk about what she did dis morning, or what she did tonight….dat kind of stuff. I don’t ask her her favorite color.
Ohkay. Maybe next time you can ask her to show her you care about what she likes too!
(silent coloring for a bit).
So I’m going to ask you a funny question. What color do think is a happy color?
What color do you think is a sad color?
What color do you think is a mad color?
What color do you think looks like mommy?
What color do you think looks like daddy?
What color do you think looks like Evy?
Iiiinnnttterrresting. I would agree, I think when I think of Evy, I’d probably pick the color yellow too. And I’m glad Blue is happy and mommy and daddy for you. Buddy I love you.
