Story of the A-maz-ing "A"

Boyhood is a most complex and incomprehensible thing. Even when one has been through it, one does not understand what it was. A man can never quite understand a boy, even when he has been the boy.-- G. K. Chesterton

Earlier this week while visiting with a friend in her new home (that was freshly painted, mind you) Colson came up the stairs and found us chatting as he said, "I drawed an A!" He lead us down the stairs to a big letter "A" on a living room wall, marked in Sharpee Black. He was so proud and said, "It's an A-MAZing A!"

Moral of the story: teaching your children how to draw will also involve teaching them where they can draw, and sometimes they don't listen. and, leaving Sharpee pens unattended with a 3 year old is temptation they cannot bear.

Jenni, thank you for your sense of humor.
