I am always reluctant to bring out paints, glue, glitter or anything of the sort that might make a mess. It seems like I have to constantly monitor those activities to prevent them from “redecorating” the couch. I caved in today and let Ollie paint with water colors. Then the phone rang and I stepped out of the room for about 20 seconds. When I returned, Ollie had devoured a chunk of the blue paint. Why would anyone eat paint? Who knows the mind of a 2 year old?! He had very interesting diapers for the next few days. Suffice to say, the art projects will stay locked up for a while for Ollie.
