What was I thinking?





Do you ever wonder that as a parent? Fingerpainting for Valentine's...really??? Well, atleast this fingerpainting excursion (our second this week) I did think to take off his shirt. He's learning, right? He's experimenting, right? His little brain is growing and synapses are developing, right?

I can be thankful for all the sweet pink, red, and magenta hand prints ALL OVER (do you understand what ALL OVER means) my downstairs (and my room for that matter). What have I learned: joy of an 18 -month old can't be measured in messes and fingerpainting should be done naked. I wish I could pause even the "messes" in life.

I would like to thank the people at Crayola for making a truly washable paint...you have saved me not only a brand new polo shirt but oh so much sanity.

Happy fingerpainting!

What WERE you thinking!! He looks like he had a great time though!! I love his hair, he looks like such a big boy! Hope you're feeling well. Sorry we didn't get together this week, my mom just left today to go back to Nashville.

Ha! That is SO fun! I actually let William get out the paint this week, too! He made some homemade Valentine cards and created quite a mess, too. But what fun is creating without getting messy? You have encouraged me to let him do it more! :)
