Caution: Artist a Work!

This was meant to be a post about painting with feathers. An idea I thought would be different but fun. And it was, although Little One was soooooo into his creative process (and very over tired it was a hour past his usual nap time) that when one of his toddler friends tried to take his feather....this was the result!
I was snapping pictures of him painting when the incident occurred. Caught on film!
Toddlers have strong opinions and their verbal filtration system is not yet established, so everyone in the house knows how this Little One feels when he expresses himself.

Wouldn't it be great to be two, just for a day?
At the bank:
"What do you mean I have to wait in line?" followed by you throwing your purse and stomping and screaming.
(Do you think people would let you move ahead?)
At the grocery store:
"Where are the muffins? You're all out of blueberry!? But that's my favorite!" followed by you sitting down on the floor and sobbing, "Bluuuuuuue berrrrrrry!"

Sorry, I guess I'm over tired too.
Feeling silly, day seven 3 kids, no husband, is it Mother's Day this weekend? It is! My hubby comes home Friday night!
Wow, I think I'm due for a break....good timing.
Take care of YOU, all you Moms and Dads out there!
And remember, don't disturb your young artist at work, who knows what might happen?
PS: Painting with a feather was fun and no, Little One did not make the letter 'M' on his paper.

Fantastic picture! What a great expression on the little guy's face.

Happy Mom's day in advance.

You deserve a break! I love capturing pictures of kids when they are at their most natural selves and in the moment ;-)

I am going to try this with my daughter tomorrow. She loves to paint, and I am running out of new ideas in that department. Thanks for all your wonderful ideas here!
