Well, I do. Beside from the very obvious reason that I am specially inclined to artworks, pretty and colorful things, Crayons has become the secret weapon we use to Sophia when we she becomes very impatient and irritated, and it has worked wonders on her.
Say for example in restaurants, my hyper active child couldn't stay still and wait for our orders to come. Bring out the paper and crayons.... and TADA.... instantly our table becomes peaceful as we wait for our hearty meal. Now who says, we can't handle going out without a yaya? Yes, we are still yayaless. But slowly now we've adapted and being hands on working parents has become easier now compared to the first few months we let go the yaya...
Anyways, we went to Manila last May 13 and 14, just the three of us, hubby, me and Sophia. Crayons made our lives easier that day at least easier for Maury and I, and fun for Little S.
This was at the airport NAIA 3 on our way home to Cebu...
When the magic of the crayon comes to an end, Little S is back to her active self but of course kids are kids and there is no way you can stop them from being curious and playful. But at least when we need time to control their tantrums or when we need to divert our little kids attention we have crayons/colors to depend on. At least it worked for my Little S.
Have a safe cold Tuesday everyone. Kisses from Sophia. :)
