We are tying to convince Parker that coloring is a skill that all the boys are mastering these days. We are especially focusing on the proper grip.
Parker isn’t too keen on any of it. I mean, why use crayons when you can make such sweeter messes with paint? And why hold the crayon somebody else’s way when the easier way works just as well.
Oh, and the ‘break the crayons in half to better facilitate the proper grip’ philosophy? Uh.. nope. A broken crayon doesn’t work in Parker’s book. Broken crayons don’t work right. Gee, Mom. Everyone knows that.
I sure have my work cut out for me with this one.
