Step 3: Choose first color. Remove cap. Lower pen to paper. Child one asks what I'm doing. Finds out, asks to color one too. Remove page under mine. Lower pen to paper again. Child 2 asks what I'm doing. Finds out, asks to color one too. Remove page under mine. Lower pen to paper again. Child 3 asks what I'm doing. Finds out, asks to color one too. Remove page under mine. Lower pen to paper again. Stop. Find Child 4, ask if he'd like to join us. He doesn't. Of course.
Step 4: Choose a very tiny area and start coloring. Choose two more colors and areas. Find first glitter pen. Realize it may be the most amazing thing EVER. Wonder if I would be judged for doing all professional work with sparkle gel pens.
Step 5: Yell at children for bumping the table. Dig out more sparkle color pens. Finish top of paper. Child one "finishes" and asks if she can make other stuff in the middle of paper. Start on bottom of paper.
Step 6: Child 3 has drawn a smiley face on his and walked away. Child 2 says she's getting bored and decides to turn hers into a frame for a Hamilton quote.
Step 7: Finishing the coloring. Draw a hashtag using the obvious sparkle pen. Take picture of my sheet. Child 2 insists I take a picture of hers. Then said I should take a picture of Child 1's. Realize I've got a headache, possibly from straining eyesight looking at tiny lines, also possible from huffing sparkle gel pens.
Step 8: Finally done.
