We normally try to have Family Home Evenings on the Mondays that I don't work and this week was no exception. We gave the kids a choice between finger paints and ice cream, and to our surprise they chose finger paints. It was messy, but it was worth it. It seems like when I work we just don't spend ANY time together as a family, and even when I DON'T work we rarely do either because I am always running around doing things at night that I don't like to do with the kids, from grocery shopping to craft nights to church stuff to just plain Mommy time!
I had bought these paints ages ago because I loved the colors of them! Teal, purple, green and burnt orange from Crayola! I couldn't pass them up!
"Look! Mom's letting me get messy""Let's try some arm painting too"
"Um, now what?"
