Yesterday, after playing in Jack’s room for a while, I thought it was time for a project. I’m really bad about finding cool projects/crafts for us to do, but then, never doing them! I’m trying to break that.
There are plenty of recipes online for DIY finger paint, but most need cornstarch and I don’t have any. So, I mixed up water, powdered sugar, and food coloring. I had a hard time making it thick, but it turned out good enough. AND it was the easiest clean up EVER! I hate cleaning paint off of brushes, but this was no problem.
Jack loved it. I didn’t even offer it as finger painting, but just regular painting, because he can’t stand to have anything on his hands. I did put my hands in it and he did it, too, but then quickly needed me to wash his hands.
So, I find that Jack has outfits that I love, but I try to save them for something special. That makes no sense, so I’m getting rid of that mindset and put this on him today for his haircut and grocery shopping. Really and truly, what special events do 2 year olds have? He grows so fast and one day it won’t fit him and I’ll be sad he never wore it. PS: I bought it around Christmas time at a consignment shop, Then Again, for less than $10!
Today, I took Jack for his 2nd haircut. He was so bald as a baby, it’s strange that he would need another haircut since he got one in March.
I had to sit in the chair and let him sit facing me. He did really good, once we got settled.
And that’s why I LOVE Publix.
I’m tempted to order a whole (small) cake for our anniversary since it was our wedding cake and we’re celebrating the big 5 years this August. And really, I love a good excuse to eat cake.
Happy Friday, Everyone!!
