Of Splurging

I let Micaiah play with a pencil today.

Typically it's only crayons for that girl - no pens, pencils or grown-up writing utensils of any sort.  I can't give a logic for it, it's just the way it is.  And there's a certain little girl in this house who just wants to be grown-up (at 2!). 

And today I decided it wasn't worth the argument.

Giving my toddler a real-life pencil?  I'm living life on the edge now . . .

  1. I've discovered that for me, it's not so scary giving the eldest the coloring utensils. It's when the youngest finds them and takes artistic license to decorate the kitchen floor, and the fridge, and the front door!! How did Micaiah feel about her big-girl splurge?
