They got it.

At Daniel's Christmas party, as I watched parents feed their 2 1/2 year old children, give them a scholastic lesson during a craft, and hold their hands to make sure the markers landed in the right spot, several thoughts ran through my head:

This must be your first kid.

 Your healthy children are more than capable of feeding themselves.

 It's their art work, not yours.

 Stop making their Christmas craft a lesson. I don't know anyone that doesn't learn their colors eventually, or how to color in the lines. 

 Some people are never meant to color in the lines-let them be them.

Daniel colored his nails, wiped his hands on his shirt while his dirty little hands ate pizza, and quite frankly if a 2 year old craft is perfect, it wasn't done by a 2 year old.
