In fact, I am sure it's down right confusing.
Hannah has really been into drawing and coloring these days. However, she still doesn't understand what is and is not ok to color on. I'm not sure we're really helping matters either. A typical afternoon:
Hannah: *colors on a very important piece of paper, cause you know, mom and dad say to color on paper*
Me: Ack! Don't color on that! Here, have a plain sheet of paper.
Hannah: *colors on that, gives me her picture, and goes and plays*
Hannah: *is coloring in daddy's "Drill and Ceremonies" Army manual*
Me: Ack! Don't color on that!!!!!
Hannah: *runs away*
Hannah: *colors in a coloring book*
Me: What are you coloring in Hannah?
Hannah: *looks up at me with fear and drops her crayon*
Me: A coloring book! That's great! Go ahead, you can color in that. *smiles hopefully a convincing smile*
Hannah: *looks at me skeptically, and then runs away for good measure*
