The World is My Canvas

I love to draw. Especially on myself and walls, and all the other things my mom tells me I can't write on. She says, "You can only draw on paper, Michael," but then when I tried to take a crayon to her scriptures she went back on her paper rule and said I could only draw on paper she gives me. Moms are so hard to figure out sometimes.

I just can't see what the big deal is about drawing on walls. There is so much empty white space - perfect for one of my art projects! Mom says I'm lucky that Mr. Clean invented Magic Erasers, otherwise she might have to ship me off to boarding school. I don't know what boarding school is, but maybe they would let me draw on the walls there, so that would be fun.

A few days ago she actually let me take off my clothes and play with paint and potato stamps. I thought the potatoes were to eat, but then she showed me how to dip them in paint and stamp them on paper. It was so awesome! I made sure to get the paint all over myself, too, because if I get really dirty she'll let me take a bath, and I love to splash water all over the floor.

Mom even bought me my very own pair of scissors. She calls them "safety scissors", and I like them, but I still think her pointy scissors are more fun, especially to run with. I just love to cut up paper, and it's fun to see what else I can cut, like carpet and furniture, and my shirt. Mom gets really mad when I try to cut other things, though. Silly Mommy. I just like to experiment.

I'm already thinking of what I want to do for my next art project and it's going to be so cool! I would tell you what it is, but I know my mom reads this blog and I don't want her to find out. (I would hate to ruin the surprise).

If only I could get my hands on some markers...

Thank heaven for magic erasers (although they do not, for the record, get ink off of a pine dining table - aggravation!).

And thank heaven for Crayola's color wonder markers.

Oh Bonnie, you make me laugh. Just a few weeks after moving into a newly painted place, Ethan took a permanant black marker to our wall. Then he attacked the downstairs wall with crayon. But like you said it is just white space waiting to be filled. You have such a way with word, even in the voice of Michael.

Michael, you're awesome, you little artist you! We like scissors a lot here, too, and I loooove Magic Erasers. We haven't done potato stamping yet, we'll give it a go. Paint is always fun. Not so much fun for Mom, but oh well... ;)
