I went to switch out the laundry and found a bunch of paper folded up in the dryer. I was able to identify it as a church bulletin and pin point which kid it was from by the light blue color of the pen marks that were barely still visible on the paper, after having been through the washer and all.
I called my son in and asked if it I was his.
Immediately he put his head down and was super upset. I thought wow, he already knows the speech that’s coming about dryer fires and taking care of our appliances. I could skip over it and my job here is done. Yeah! *High Five* for mom!
Nope. This wasn’t the case at all.
“Oh mom! I’m so upset that was my best one yet, I was going to sell it!”
My son sells his colored-on church bulletins?!?!
After a little probing I was able to find out he doesn’t sell them yet, but he’s been hoping to set up shop at a garage sale with them. He said either to sell or give away.
Not wanting to crush his artistic side, or his passion to pursue being an entrepreneur, I’m going to suggest he starts taking some plain white paper to church.

P.S. If you’re looking for something to keep your kiddos engaged while listening to sermons, try out Busy Books: Sermon Notes for Kids. I bought it a month ago, not sure which kiddo it would be used for at the time, since its for ages 8-12. I thought my two oldest could switch off using it (because they refuse to just sit quietly and use it together #reallife). As it turns out my 13 year old really likes it! She’s a doodler and budding artist, so this is right up her alley. I wish the cover didn’t say “Ages 8-12”, because while the suggestion is nice, it makes my daughter feel like it’s a little kid book, when in reality it’s just an oversized Christ focused coloring book. I think I’ll suggest that she decorate the cover with duct tape to personalize it.
