Call Me Crazy

Have you ever met one of those moms that doesn't "do" play dough or doesn't "do" fingerpaint? Well, I'm not one of them. I think that half the fun of childhood is making messes. Fun, free-spirited messes that allow kids to be creative and foster their love for all things messy. So today, we fingerpainted. Not the best idea for a 15 month old, but a great idea for a 2 year old; so baby brother got to play along too.

Setting the stage


Tucker is not so sure about this


Amelia; on the other hand, jumped right in


Warming up now ... "Here, I'll help you!"


Back off man!


Free for all!






Can I eat this?


Letting the creativity flow


I'm ALL about utilizing cheap, child labor ... clean up!


The final product

Cute! We do messy things too, like paint and play do and shaving cream. Just no more moon sand!
