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 have saved me not only a brand new polo shirt but oh so much sanity.

Happy fingerpainting!
