The cynical crayon

I'm Cynical,mostly facetious,always bespectacled & hilarious. This where I chronicle the trials and tribulations of life as a stay at home mom.

OK lets not oversell, my friends think that I'm funny; Is that like having your mom say you're pretty?

These crayons are fantastic! I can remember drawing pictures at school and all the crayons were in one big bin. Everyone would grab a colour and draw. Someone would ask you to pass them the red crayon or the blue one.
 Eventually one of my classmates would ask for the skin coloured crayon. The understanding being that they wanted the light peachy coloured one. I would always hand them the brown crayon. I loved to see the look on my classmates faces. “No, that’s not skin colour” someone would say. To which I would slyly reply “You never said you wanted your skin colour, because brown is mine”
I would have loved to have these crayons back then. If someone asked me for the skin coloured crayon, I could have given them the whole box.
Crayola describes this product as follows: “…Multicultural Crayons come in an assortment of skin hues that give a child a realistic palette for colouring their world…”
This would make a great teaching tool. What better way to help teach   kids about different races and ethnicities.  
Thank you Crayola for creating these wonderful crayons. In spite of my trademark cynisim this crayon approves!

    I don’t see olive but close enough. I know what my daughter is getting for her birthday.

    That would have helped so much cause at 7 (my mind) didn’t know what to call the apricot colored crayon so we called it...
