Anyway, so we get the frames, boxes, paints, brushes, and a bunch of other stuff (we found some cool classic books on sale, and being the reader that I am, I grabbed a few for my 7 year old grand daughter ...okay, I bought 6! Don't judge me!) and headed back home to
So, we find an old sheet and they proceed to start painting. Having worked in head start for 8+ years and having operated my own childcare business for 7+ years I know that children tend to be messy BUT the Diva wanted to paint a frame and then add the baby's footprints.... oookaaayyyyy, LOL!! That was like giving a cat a bath! Then it came out messy so she painted over it and tried it again LOL!
The Chef painted a jewelry box, a snake (yes, in the store she saw a wooden snake and thought it was cool), and a frame, the grand boy painted a castle and a bird house, the Diva painted 2 frames, and I had a frame but yea, I hate arts and crafts (too much time spent with little kids and paint can do that to you!). BUT later that evening my honorary son aka "Big Bear" (father of my youngest grandson) came over. This nut had the nerve to say why we didn't buy a frame for him to paint??? WHAT! How many young, black, 20 year old males do YOU know that like to do arts & crafts (and are not gay)? All I could do was laugh because this is a big dude, who works on cars, and has a loud music in his car but he wanted to paint a frame! NEVER JUDGE A BOOK BY IT'S COVER! So I told him he could paint my frame (still laughing!) And he did! All in all Craft day was fun! Everyone enjoyed themselves, Even Big Bear!
I LOVE My Family!!
So anyway, the moral of this story is:
