Brody and I spent some time coloring together today. I used the time to teach him colors. He loves to grab a crayon out of the box, scribble a little, hand the old crayon to me, then get a new crayon out of the box. As he handed me the "old" crayon, I would color a block of the picture and ask him what color crayon I was using. It was a great way to keep him interested in learning his colors. But I also used the time to teach him a valuable life lesson. As all kids do, he wanted to color a little bit of the picture, then turn the page to color a little bit of another picture, and so on. In the past I have played along, but today I thought it would be a good time to start teaching him to finish what he started. Each time he tried to turn the page, I would remind him that we needed to finish coloring the picture we started before we began coloring another picture. He actually did really well with this concept and we finished coloring the picture together (he scribbled, then I got the crayon and colored in another block...) The picture wasn't pretty, but that wasn't the point.
