Creative Expression

A few weeks ago a friend sent me some pics of her kids. Her little boy was born a few days after Tyler - if only we lived close we could watch them grow up together. of the pics showed her 2 kids sitting at the counter bar using water color paints. They looked so cute and I was immediately struck with guilt that I haven't let Tyler paint yet. He ends up with a mouth full of crayons every time I let him color, so I figured he was still a ways away from paint.

But I couldn't get it out of my head that I hadn't even let him try. What kind of mother am I?!

Turns out I was smarter than I thought. This is what happened. I can't wait to color eggs this week. Agh.

i am just as guilty Lauren. I haven't let Gretchen use paint. She is still eating crayons. Hope all is well. The pictures of the kids are too cute.

Thanks Mary! It is so funny with the next baby they do some things so much earlier and then you hold off on so many other things.
