Finger Painting

My five and four year-olds got a little creative while I was making dinner recently.

I let them eat some frozen blueberries to keep the whining at bay while I cooked.  They took some liberties with their snack, and decorated the dishwasher as well.

After THIS experience with blueberry juice, I cannot tell you how relieved I was that they limited their canvas to the dishwasher.  Blueberry juice washes off dishwashers.  It does not wash off walls.

It’s wonderful, actually, how quickly they were able to clean the front of the dishwasher.  This is precisely why I was able to smile, take pictures, and call it finger painting.

Did I mention that I recently found another spot in my dining room that has a blueberry stain we didn’t see 2 1/2 months ago when we were scrubbing walls?  It’s about three feet further into the room, beneath the window and behind the curtains.  I’m still wondering HOW that little incident happened!  I’d love to have a replay of that one to watch.  Oh well, you win some, you lose some.  That’s life.
