The kid loves arts and crafts and I’m not great at them. I provide her with an array of dollar store supplies and she tapes and cuts and glues to her heart’s content. I am much better at the art side of things. I like to draw, and when she tells me what to draw it’s that much easier.
I had seen the window markers in the store a few times and thought about buying them, and then thought about what giving her permission to draw on our windows might mean. Would she understand that these markers were special for that purpose?
Finally, one day, I threw caution to the wind and bought the package. We sat down together at the sliding door and created art. It’s awesome. It’s even more awesome when she grabs them and sits down to draw while I work away in the kitchen.
