Confessions of a regular mother: I'm kinda slack. I don't love spending hours painting, making playdough, crafting and so on with my small ones. I get bored. I don't like mess. I suspect many of us are the same, if we're honest.
We had some friends around for an art day recently. I wish I had pictures, but my camera is still out of action (damn floods!!). I snapped these with my phone during her second painting session the day after. I was interested to see she now does arms and legs in the "correct" spot on a figure. I drew the two circles for head and body, she did the rest. The big swirly lines are (sorry Nanna!) snakes, apparently.

|Lolly is very proud of her best canvas: herself!|
She LOVES painting. LOVES it. I've been fielding requests for painting several times a day since then. Damn it. :D
