Full disclosure: I recently bought myself one of those fancy adult coloring books. I lined up my new colored pencils with their perfectly sharpened tips, total ROYGBIV rainbow.
I colored for about 5 minutes and threw the dang thing in a drawer.
Sorry not sorry, but it’s just too much pressure. It didn’t relax me at all.
But then I learned about these perfectly snarky adult coloring books from Papeterie Bleu, like #MOMLIFE: A Snarky Adult Coloring Book, which gets me on a cellular level.
As a mom, I have lived the pages of Threenager and Potty like a rock star, and I wake up every morning thinking Mom hair, don’t care.
One little quibble: #MomLife isn’t an entirely white thing, yo. But then, I guess you could color in the stressed-out parents on the pages anyway you’d like.
They also have Dad Life: A Manly Adult Coloring Book, for the guy who’s always dreamed of coloring in an intricate tableau of Pull my finger. Okay so the men don’t ask directions joke is a little played, but hey, if the cliché fits.
Also check out the publisher’s other snarky adult coloring book options, including Mandalas? Meh, a refreshing change from all the New Year’s memes of beautiful sunsets circulating on Facebook, urging me to be one with the universe.
That book is definitely my favorite, because, I can so relate to the page with the quote, Some people just need a high-five. In the face. With a chair.
Just don’t tell my yoga instructor I said that. Or my kids.
