I try not to focus too much on the stickers of aliens and animals that adorn the door and ceiling and walls around my son's bed.
The sidewalk in front of our house is decorated with chalk drawings of creepy crawlies and space ships.
The windows are smudged with "window" paint, the table is indelibly marked with paint.
Their fingernails are encrusted with chalk dust and their skinned knees are encircled with pen drawn tattoos.
What do I have to show for myself? A million key strokes typed in invisible ink.
Go ahead children. Make your marks. Invisible ink is too hard to see.
