Budding artist



"Ahhh! What's that?"

I felt something cool stripe my foot. I looked down from doing the dishes to see Sadie looking up at me with a hot pink marker. She smiled her proud smile and went back to work. I surveyed the damage: Her feet were covered in pink, there was a bold pink stripe down the front of her brand new pants, her hands were stained pink, the floor next to her had deliberate pink scribbles, and Momma (of course) has been pinked as well. I realized she was trying to do my feet the way she did her own. It was cute. And fortunately washable.

She did manage to get some on a piece of paper, which she proudly showed me.

How could you be mad at that adorable little smile of hers?!

We had a similar situation in the car the other day but with permanent black marker. Well, atleast it wasn't on his face and he seemed so content I couldn't get mad, mainly because I was the one who left it back there in the first place. Oh, and now his car seat is decorated as well.

Allison also loves to redecorate her clothes, the house, her body, etc. All non-washable items are banned from our house.

I can't believe how big Sadie is getting! That first picture is soooo cute. Most of Kailey's art projects include some self decorations, too. I don't recall ever receiving any decorations myself though; that was sweet of her to share.
