Yesterday was Mother's Day and I trust you all spent it being doted on by your little ones...although this wasn't quite the scene at my house. My girls were tired and crabby for most of the day and I logged quite a few hours refereeing fights. Not quite what I had planned. So to treat myself, I just printed out these fashionable and frame-worthy coloring pages from J.Crew's Crewcuts.
As I type this, each of my children are gathered around a table and coloring as they chat happily about which colors they're using. August just asked two-year-old Hazel, "What color are you using?" and she said, "Dark pink." As a color-lover myself, I'm thrilled at her being thoughtful about color at such a young age! Now this is a happy memory! (Oh, I spoke too soon...now she's crying that she can't find turquoise.)
These mom and shoe-print pages are available for FREE printing at jcrew.com. They are also available online where your child (or you) can "color" them by clicking and choosing colors right on the screen...although I prefer the old fashioned way.
