What in the world?

Today at school, Josh's class made handprint turkeys. He loved it, and wanted to make more when we got home. Ok, no problem. A little Tempera never hurt anyone, right?

So I set him up at the table and for over an hour, he painted his hand and put handprints on construction paper. Messy, but washable, and entertaining. So whatever - I can live with that combination.

But after I answered the phone int he other room, he decided to paint, umm, what's the word? Oh I know - EVERYTHING. I walked back in and his entire left side was covered with red paint.

Somehow, in a 3 year old brain, I guess if a little Tempera is that much fun, then a lot of Tempera must just be awesome beyond belief.

Did he just paint himself, or did he get your house too?

There was a time when I would say that was funny, but now I try to learn through this, as I will be in your shoes before I know it.
