The kids woke up this morning before I got a chance to take a shower, so I decided to set them up with an activity to keep them busy for 10 minutes.
I chose fingerpaints. Which I subsequently found on the bathroom door, the wall, and inside the spice drawer.
And the dumbest part (no, we haven’t gotten to it yet) is that it’s a nice day, and we do own a picnic table.
As moronic as this idea sounds actually was, I have had success with the art-as-unsupervised-distraction methodology in the past. I’d say that window has closed.
