I believe in supporting creativity of all kinds as witnessed by my kids creations and projects throughout our house. It's because of this passion that I thought nothing of my 3 1/2 year old son's request for a marker. You see, he has a certain routine of bringing in a toy catalog to the bathroom and circling the things he would love to have.
He's in there for a while and I hear lots of "Mom-look at this!"
I respond with a distracted-"Circle it-I will look at it when you are all done."
Ten minutes pass when he announces that he is "All done." Followed by a "Look what I circled. This is what I want for my birthday."
I peek into the bathroom and see:
He then says: "I want poop for my birthday." Insert his juvenile giggle here.
A moment that surely would have been more appreciated by his 8 and 10yr old brothers, I still couldn't resist a smile.
Now I need to get the green Sharpie away from my son and get my hands on a Magic Eraser Sponge.
Here's to hoping your weekend is filled with unexpected creativity!
