Finger Painting

January 16, 2012

Dear Aaron,

I don’t know why we waited so long to finger paint with you.  I made finger paints awhile ago, but they kind of went bad (they had sugar in them), so that plan went out the window.  Then every time I wanted to strip you down to your diaper and let you paint there was a reason not to.  This past weekend, Auntie Rachel was in town so we headed to the store, got you some paint, stripped you down and had some fun!

Well, you definitely wasted no time at all getting your hands dirty.  We barely had time to put the plate of paint down before you were getting into it!

You weren’t so interested in painting on the paper exactly.  You were much more interested in painting your body (this seems familiar),  and playing with the piece of paper than you were in painting.

Well, we got a little bit of art done, and you had a fun time, which is the most important part!  When you decided you were done, you came straight for me with your messy hands.  I intercepted you with some kisses.

We had a little snuggly and cleaned you right up.

Off you went.  A proud artist leaving his craft behind.

Who knew I could like messy fun just as much of you do?  I hope we get some better pictures next time we finger paint, but I’m sure it will be just as much fun!

Love,

Mommy
