Ciaran The Artist
He found the markers and now he wants to draw every morning. Yesterday it was a blue and red marker and two full pages of drawings in my sketchbook. He also drew a lovely drawing on his foot in blue and my shin in bright red. Today it was black and yellow. Another whole page and then the cover of the sketchbook, all the while exclaiming "nice!" every five minutes.
I remember making his Father's Day painting and how much he hated having his little hand painted. Now he wants to paint everything in sight, including me, the cats, the couch, and daddy's big chair. Now he is sleeping off that hard work with marker stains all over his legs, hands, and nose.
