On a certain weekend morning, FBB wanted to paint.
That is usually not a problem in and of itself. He paints frequent enough in school and at home, and he knows what to and not to do with paints.
Except this time, BBM is also around. And she has never painted before.
I put the 3-sizes-too-big Hello Kitty art smock (gift–don’t ask) on her, made sure FBB put on his own smock, set out the paints, brushes, and paper, and went on to do the dishes.
This is what I saw when I was done:
Paint on the face! Thank goodness for non-toxic, water-soluble tempera paint!
Oh, and just when I thought FBB is old and responsible enough with paint, he showed me his hand:
He can wash his own hand, thankyouverymuch.
