What I Did Last Night:

Hung out with this cutie 5-1/2 year old. Together we created this painting, a belated gift for her fifth birthday. Er, much belated.

Everything was chosen and designed by her: colors, subject(s), which insects were to have happy faces and which were “asleep” (and therefore had no eyes), hearts and swirls accents. I just painted it.

Tuna mac-n-cheese with peas, two hours of painting, and a big old stack of books read before bed. Not a bad night.

    It was pretty fun. And humbling. How to make a decent painting in poor light with an impatient 5 year old dictating to you?

    Sometimes the simple nights are the best nights.

    I wish that was all it took to entertain my kids these days. Never, ever introduce her to the wonderful world of electronics. NEVER. Sounds like a perfect evening.
