I saw this question/quote on a T-Shirt online the other day, and it really cracked me up! It read,
“Can’t we all just color?”
I knew I had to make it into a House Of Joyful Noise Social ShareIt, for you all to grab and share online.
I’m guessing it’s a spin off of the saying, “Can’t we all just get along?” I don’t know for sure.
But I found it funny, because that’s not what it made me think of.
It made me think of all of the days when I had cleaning, or dishes, or laundry, or other more task-orientated things to do.
But all I really wanted to do, was COLOR! Or paint. Or design. Or create something (anything!) fun and exciting and creative.
I do have to set a good example for my four blessings, though. I’m the Mama! Right? So I have my one-liners I remind my kiddos of all of the time, and trust me . . . . they sound really good and convincing, coming out of my mouth. Like:
“First things first, Guys!”
“Work hard, then play hard. That’s our motto!”
When sometimes what I’d really like to say, but can’t, is . . . . . .
Who doesn’t love coloring? Right? Although I have to admit: crayons is not my favorite medium to work with. I don’t think I really rock at coloring with crayons. Especially after I saw my sister-in-laws coloring one time. We were both at the coffee table, (I think with our kids? I can’t be sure. lol. But we were definitely adults.), and I looked over her page, and was like, “Wha-what?”. Her coloring was so awesome. And I thought I was the artist. So then I was like, well, . . . . let’s just say I put my crayon down.
But HEY, one can color with all kinds of other things! And I do!!
