A few weeks ago, my husband asked me if I needed anything from the store. I asked him if he would pick up my youngest son a coloring book because he kept grabbing my pen from me when I wasn’t watching and kept telling me that he wanted to draw. I took the pen away from him and he was devastated, even though I tried to reassure him that I would let him draw as soon as he woke up from a nap since daddy hasn’t brought him his surprise coloring book yet.

My Toddler’s Very First Coloring Book
When my son woke up from his nap, I immediately showed him the coloring book that daddy brought home just for him. He seemed excited and I asked him if he wanted to draw. He said, “sure” in his cute little boy voice. I asked his older brother to go grab a few crayons and to bring them into the living room for his baby brother to use. I tore a page out of his coloring book and sat him on the floor with a few crayons. As a seasoned mom, I should have know better than to hand my toddler crayons freely on the floor. I am not really sure what I was thinking but thankfully it didn’t end to badly, my toddler only colored on one of his toys with the crayons.
