The Next Monet


My oldest definitely takes after his momma. He loves to draw, paint, glue............um, this isn't sounding quite as good now that I think about it. My little man decided that he would "decorate" his wall with a pen he found, then later, his closet door with a sharpie. The last straw was when he found my ONLY tube of waterproof mascara and "colored" his hardwood floors and himself with it. Well, after all my disciplining efforts that seemed to make no difference, I decided to follow the old saying "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em." We painted pumpkins together to allow his creativity to be channeled into something that required less clean up and more aesthetic quality.

I would like to place an order for one pumpkin, especially created by the future Mr. Monet!

I especially like the pirate pumpkin. when kyle discovered markers he colored a picture on the back of his door. he got in big trouble but since it was on the inside, i decided to leave it. i thought it was kinda cute. Maybe, i just told myself that so i wouldnt have to paint. mr. clean eraser doesn't even budge the best of kyle's creations.
