It's been a day of non-stop tattling, whining, and "I'm bored". And so, it's been a day when two girls spent a lot of time sitting on their beds hypothetically reflecting on their behavior. To save my sanity, I declared this evening to be Painting Night and dug out some craft kits from Christmas. It was exactly the right activity. Thank goodness!
My girls' are SO different. You can spot their personalities in everything they do, including painting. Katherine is a perfectionist.
Rachel is a whole different kind of artist. For starters, we have learned from experience that it is best to paint half naked. It saves time and shirts. (Check out the giant goose egg on her forehead, the result of a run-in with a book shelf this evening.)
