"Mommy, I want to paint"

When I heard this I said alright (only because it is water paint).

Then I was starting to tell him to go to his seat at the table but I was interrupted with him telling me he needed to have his 'painting suit' on.

I had no clue what a painting suit was. He went to the hall closet and showed me the smock I had hanging up there. I had completely forgotten about it.

Last year I had bought one of those lovely vinyl/plastic smocks to keep his clothing clean when he was going to help me paint with something other than water paint. He has worn it once, oh so long ago. So why he needed it I don't know but we put it on him anyway.

He painted...

and painted...

and painted.

When he was finally finished he told me I needed to leave his painting alone so it can dry.

He came back a few minutes later and told me it was dry and I needed to hang it on the refrigerator.

So I have a lovely painting of Wall-E to hang on my refrigerator.

Now to the important question what to do with all the paintings and drawing that are displayed on the refrigerator? They have to come down sometime and go somewhere.

I have a box for the best pictures. Label them, and stash your favorites for future sorting. I can't pitch stuff immediately, though I do throw away anything with cotton balls and glued on fluffy stuff. It never sticks on and drives me nuts.

I have kept a bunch in our storage room just laid on top of each other...I have a hard time throwing things like that sweet-painting suit!
