Am Idiot

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.

    OMG, Julie. I adore you and think you’re lovely, but really? Fingerpaints? I don’t even *own* fingerpaints. My kids have never fingerpainted. Ever. I refuse. I am a chicken. Props to you for trying the shit I can’t even think of…

    I bought fingerpaints for my kids once. Once. And we did them outside, but they had to come inside to wash their hands, didn’t they? The wallpaper in the downstairs half-bath looked like a crime scene (it was red fingerpaint).
