One of the ideas I had for Wes when the kids went back to school was finger painting.  I went out and got a giant pad of paper, and 4 bug tubes of colorful paint.  I was so excited for this craft/activity... thinking how very toddler and "pre-schoolish" it was.  Well. Our first attempt didn't go as planned.  Turns out Wes' aversion to dirty hands made FINGER paint a no-go.  He just wasn't into gettin' messy.  So, resourceful Mama, I got him a brush.  He then proceeded to paint all over. himself.  Sigh 

I've waited a few weeks.  Today we tried again.  And, I must say he did very well!  He wanted more and more and more paint...

Now, does it make me a bad person to think the paint plate tuned out better than the "canvas"


  1. I haven't laughed so hard in a long time- thanks for that, Wes!
