For your Easter playdate

Who needs orange carrots? Ok, a black carrot would not be pleasant to eat but Rose doesn’t use orange that much.

I love that she sits at her desk and paints not one, not two, but three pictures. Then gets mad at me when I don’t let her get more paper from the printer to keep painting. I think if I let her she would paint a whole ream of paper.

Pot o’ Gold for a playdate

Rose has a play date with some friends. Once a week they gather at a different someones house to play. That means that for two hours once a month I get to entertain 4 almost four year olds. With glue, construction paper, and crayons I tackled entertaining them for part of the time.

While they were gluing I tried explaining about pots of gold and leprechauns. Have you ever explained to a kindergartner the myth of leprechauns for the first time? It is difficult. Even to an adult this stuff can be confusing.

Love in the air

I have set a goal to practice my drawing regularly. To full fill this goal I drew a Valentine coloring page for Rose and I for a quiet time activity. My favorite parts are the “love is in the air” sign and the milk + cookies.

While Rose loves to color she still needs to practice on keeping it in the lines.  I give her an A for effort.

This year’s Valentines Day shirt

It is that time of year when Valentine’s Day comes again. Which means it is T-shirt time. This year I have the challenge of making a one girly and one non-girly lovey dovey shirt. Challenge accepted.

I didn’t think that she would like it so much but so far she has worn it all day and all night. I bet she would wear it all day again if she had it her way.

With Rose’s shirt I washed it three hours after painting it. Doing this made the image softer and faded like it had been around a long time.

Decorate your desktop- pillows

It has been a while that I have loved this black and white patterned pillow. I have not in real life found an actual pillow for my house but for right now I will do the next best thing. I will put it on my desktop.
