This is how we roll on a Tuesday afternoon. We had 40's French music playing. Annika was hot and decided to only wear her bloomers while she drew on the fire place. I'm on the couch laughing and cheering Annika on as she does the funniest dance! These are the days I'll be most proud of when I look back at the time I spent with my girls.
I mentioned before that we had a problem with the fireplace. I don't want to have it plastered and painted with a baby in the house. There would be too much toxic stuff in the air and I don't want to go through the hassle of having to explain to people why this is important to me. I always get the "you'll be fine, the baby will be fine" and then I tell them my concerns and they have no idea what I'm talking about because they've never read and understood the ingredients in a can of paint.
So, until we go forward with a renovation I decided we should have fun with this space. I got big fat Sharpies and we've been drawing on the wall. I know it's nuts. The best is watching people react to it when they walk in the house. Most don't get it. Oh well. We're enjoying this freedom. I mean who gets to write on the house walls for Pete's sake?!?!
