color on the paper or in the coloring book?  naw, that is for amateurs!  jasper lilith wants a more “interesting” canvas for her artwork 🙂

her feet will do the trick this time…  i guess drawing on her legs and arms is old hat by now…

now adding some pink to her soles…  hmm, i could probably turn this into a sole/soul pun but i will spare y’all…

now jasper lilith doesn’t always keep the tops on the markers – often the tops are strewn about all over the place – but when she puts them back on the markers, they are always on the correct color of marker…  always… 

and i can’t even take the credit – i don’t make a big fuss about how her tops go on – from the beginning, as long as she put the tops back on when she was done coloring, i didn’t care what color matched what…  but i guess she saw me do it the “correct’ way a couple of times when i did it and she decided that she liked the “correct” way better? 

i thought kids had to be repetitively taught to do something like this but i guess this is another instance of the all-powerful, mindblowing jasper litith observation and memory skills…  if she starts reading soon, i will let y’all know 🙂
