I pulled out some paints and brushes that had been moldering in a box. Some were dried out, but many were still good and I let him go to town.
He mixed paint colors and brushed...getting it under his finger nails and a little bit on the table too. But, it's just a faux wood laminate top and is easily wiped down. I know that it's because I am his Mama that I see brilliance and beauty in each piece, where many might only see smears of paint. But, that my friends is a Mama's prerogative. That's how we encourage our children, by being their number one fan and letting them try new things. When Mama cheers it's got to be good right?
