Picasso Jr.

Here is Ben's first real shot at painting. Usually Simon and I paint while Ben takes a nap. I thought it would be fun for him to get a chance this time. Here he is painting his little heart out.

I sat on the couch - not 5 feet away - so I could feed Talon. About 5 minutes later he was very quiet and I noticed that he painted himself! It took him a long time to realize we weren't mad at him. He was so sad because I think he thought he would be in trouble. He wouldn't even lift up his hands to show us.

Finally he figured out that it was okay (probably because we were cracking up!)and lightened up a bit. Washable paint in the BEST!
