Suffering for her ART

Last week Olivia started on a painting binge. She always wants to paint, usually I'm fine with it, especially since the weather is cold and we can't play outside. However this morning Liv wanted to paint before breakfast. I said ok but only after we eat. Well when a girl wants to paint she's gotta paint!!!!!

Here is her reaction to my saying that she can only paint after we eat breakfast!!!
After about 10 minutes of tears she finally came to the table and ate, well most of her cereal, then she got right down to work.

Liv has been painting through allot of her emotions lately!!!

We'll call this one "Tears in the Morning" I'm thinking of putting it on ebay!!

Too funny! That's something that would happen around here.

I'm such a horrible mommy - I've never let Alex paint here at home. (he's done it at daycare) I guess I better suck it up and let him paint. :)

Nikki, thank you for sharing your story with me regarding your childhood cancer. Bella will not remember this time, but I will and I know the bonding time we have will last a life time as well. ON the hard days, I want to look at your post again. Blessings, and thanks so much for your support and prayers. Susie

Nikki--Liv's paintings are precious. Keepsakes forever. I have your blog on my reader but I do such a poor job of commenting these days! Thanks for checking in with us!!! Have a great weekend!

Liv is an artist! I would buy the paintings:) I am a lousy mom, Kade doesn't get to paint at home...hey I'm working on it, we do play dough now.

We are in the same painting mode. My fridge looks the same. I will take some pictures too.

Whenever she wants to do something I don't want her to do, I say "let's paint." I am signing her up for art class in January. I can't wait for it to start. It is for 3-5 year olds but they are letting her join.
