Coloring for moms?

Ever get tired of coloring along in your daughter's My Little Pony coloring book? 

I did. I loved coloring with my girls, but I remember distinct days in which I craved something besides simplistic designs of inane characters. Something besides the common colors of macaroni-and-cheese, carnation pink and brick red.

Finally, a solution!!

This afternoon, I came across a fantastic site:

If you can overlook the obnoxious plethora of advertisements, you'll find a list of subjects. Once you click on one, you can pick out the picture you actually want to color... landscapes, people, flowers, geometric designs, etc.

Here's an example:

So next time you're at Target or Wal-Mart, pick yourself up a super-size box of Crayolas (and keep it super secret so little hands won't destroy it).  

Once the kids are down (and actually stay down) for the night, print out a couple pictures, pull out your Purple Mountains’ Majesty, Tropical Rain Forest and Antique Brass and say good-bye to The Giant Book of My Little Pony.

Color your mama heart out.

That's why I love my dot-to-dot books for grown-ups even though all but the youngest grandchildren have used them too.
