The noive

So it starts when Daddy says, "Hey, want me to help you colour?"

And it ends with the realization that when Daddy says "help you colour" he actually means "boggart all the crayons in a selfish attempt to regain my long-forgotten childhood".

Sheesh.

This is hysterical--my husband always used to bogart the crayons and placemat when me took the kids out to eat.

It looks like Graham is realizing this is the way it's going to be.

That look really does say it all!

Perhaps you should carry extra crayons in your purse the next time you guys go out to eat.

What a perfect shot! Graham's face is priceless!

I really want to boggart the crayons and coloring books, but my toddler would flip out. I have to play nice. For now.

I love to color. (Sorry, colour). I tend to hog the good, unbroken crayons when I colour with the kids. Woops.

What a gorgeous lad. Looks like a philosophical type, and like he didn't mind too much . . .
