|17 mos old|
I gave my son his first set of crayons when he was one year old because I want him to practice his grip. I also want to know if he will enjoy scribbling and coloring his sketch pad. I was right because he truly enjoyed this activity and he always asks for his crayons. His teacher even praised him because he knows how to hold the chalks and crayons when I enrolled him in summer class.
But I am not sure if that was a good idea because my son wants to do his artwork everywhere, sometimes in our furniture, in our appliances especially our TV screen, in books, in our walls and many more. Our wall is his favorite spot, imagine how stressed I was in removing all the mess, I even asked him to clean his mess as his punishment (bad mommy) but he even enjoyed it.
I already gave up in cleaning our walls because I can’t stop my son from scribbling and coloring it even I told him to spare our walls. I don’t want to sweat on small stuff so I will just wait till he stops painting our walls. Our house badly needs repainting job but I still don’t know when is the right time to repaint our walls.
