Coloring Books Aren’t Just for Kids

Get up, get the kids ready for school/daycare, go to work, pickup kids, make dinner, get kids ready for bed, pickup the house, fall asleep, repeat.

It’s a stressful cycle. I love my kids and want to spend time with them while I still can, but some days I don’t have any energy left.

Enter coloring books. One night while I was trying to keep the kids distracted while I was getting dinner into the oven, I sat them down with their coloring books and once everything was in the oven, I joined them.

Now it’s something we do together on a regular basis and I’m starting to understand why they sell so many adult coloring books.
