Well painting wasn’t on the shot list but I think it should be! Because my poor kids really only get to paint when the weather is good. Yes I’m a mom with a bit of OCD and I hate messes. When my kids ask to paint; I cringe tell them to change their clothes and drag the easel outside. The best part of this series though was when I took my son’s paint brush and splashed him with paint. It was so unexpected; at first he didn’t know what happened but then he cracked up when I did it again. The one thing I learned was I really need to let go once in awhile and get messy! This ended up being really fun for all of us. They got to do what they wanted to do and I got to do what I love doing. Win win!
