Katie Holmes Posts Pic of Suri Cruise Having an Adorably Normal Childhood (PHOTO)

“My artist creating with me,” Holmes captioned the shot of Suri decorating a wooden panel on the ground with a can of red spray paint, adding: #whatitisallabout.

Too cute! And Holmes is right: These simple moments of creativity are absolutely what childhood is all about, or at least ideally. Which is why we totally understand why she makes an effort to keep Suri out of the spotlight -- especially with dad Tom Cruise's Scientology-related notoriety.

Holmes went through hell (or at least that's what many, many sources say) extricating her little girl from the complicated and controversial world she was born into, and she seems intent on giving her daughter the most normal upbringing possible under the circumstances. Yup, it's all about lazy summer days spent outside, doing kid stuff. (Come to think of it, that's probably exactly what Holmes needs in her life, too!)
