Last month, when my friend Jen posted about her daughter writing all over everything with a marker, I said a silent thank you that Johnny doesn't have much interest in coloring. Of course, it came back and bit me in the butt, because Johnny got ahold of a pen the other day and proceeded to decorate himself with it. Luckily, the only thing he wrote on was himself, and it was ballpoint pen, so it came off easily. Since he was already colored on, I helped him out to make his face a little more interesting.
It is extremely interesting to me that while Johnny doesn't like to sit still to color much, Maureen will sit with his Magna Doodle for ages, scribbling on it and erasing her artwork.
Here is a picture of the two of them together.
