I know it sounds like boasting, but not only is my five-month-old granddaughter Colbie exceptionally smart—she’s also a budding artist! And besides being ambidextrous in her artistry, she is also quad-dextrous, able to use both her hands and feet to color (red crayon is her hand and blue crayon is her foot)!

My very first Mother’s Day card as a grandmother:

I apologize to my son who also colored some of the flowers on the card. I had to cut off his coloring because it didn’t fit in the scanner. I hope his feelings aren’t hurt—although I think one of his flowers made it in the lower left-hand corner.

Aren't grandmas funny? We celebrate every sign indicating a super grandbaby. And the little darlings never fail our expectations. Just wait until she starts walking and talking!

She was more interested in eating the crayons than putting them on the paper...but with a little help from mom it was a beautiful picture.

All great artists need a strong family support system. Someday when Colbie is famous, she'll say in her national award-winning acceptance speech, "I'd like to thank my mom and dad who first helped me hold the crayon and showed me that creating beauty is far superior to eating colored wax!" It will be a proud day for everyone.
