Our mini-Picasso has now updated our home decor with crayon marks. A bedroom wall and a door now sport her logo, which I’ve started to think about as the “Purple Ellipsis of Quality.” She is learning to draw ellipses, which is a good sign that her motor skills are improving. Now if we could only get her crayon-permissible area skills to improve, that would be great.
It’s off to google for crayon-erasing products for me. If any entrepreneur should happen to be reading this, create a water-soluble crayon and you will become rich, filthy stinking rich!
