I Heart My Messy Boy

I found Crayola finger paints (the good kind in the big tubes) for $5 at HEB today. Holla! I thought it was about time for William to have his first painting lesson.
I stuck him in our bathtub and squeezed paint all over the sides of the tub. He literally squealed in delight and immediately went to work on his masterpiece.
 Don came in and found us and got a little OCD at first. "Are you SURE that stuff is going to come off?" But then he joined in the fun, too.

 The picture above kind of makes me think of a baby zombie on the prowl.
 He had so much fun dabbing color on EVERYthing in sight. He did suck all of the red paint off of his fingers in one fast motion. Luckily, it's non-toxic. But not organic.

 See the pic above? He was looking at my white towels trying to figure out a way to get a hold of them.

 Don't worry. We bathed him right afterwards and the paint came off with just water. Here he is after his bath. Good as new!


  1. Oh my gosh, you are much braver than me! Shaving cream works great in the bath, too.

  2. Great idea when the kids ask to do fingerpaint and I'm not interested in the clean up!

  3. The finger full of paint ingested was obviously completely worth it. Well done!

  4. OMG that is all sorts of adorable
