Ethan insists on using a brush with the finger paints, much to the frustration and alarm of his mother, Elaine, who's been peering over the top edge of "Parents" magazine for the entire 45 minutes her 3-year-old has been quietly engaged in what he calls "arp time". Yesterday he used his fingers in the watercolors, which caused her an equal amount of chagrin, even though he was outside on an inch-thick blanket of newspapers. She shudders, imagining him at Melinda's fourth birthday party on Sunday, eating ice cream with a fork and singing the birthday song in the wrong key.
