Momma In Focus - Coloring

I got Daisy some water color crayons a while back now.  We tried coloring one other time but, she really wasn't that interested.  This time was different.  This time she knew exactly what to do and she loved when I drew a face (I am not an artist...lol) and she began to point to each feature on the face when I asked her where everything was.  She knows all of the facial features now (nose, mouth, tongue, eyes, ears, teeth, hair and even earrings) and I tried to draw some other things she would recognize for fun too (ball, duck, cow, flower...again, I am not artist) and she pointed them all out as well.  We had such a great time together! 

When we were done I noticed that Daisy had actually scribbled a good amount on the paper and I was so proud of her first piece of artwork.  I've never wanted to be a mom who displays art on our fridge (I wanted to have an art display board in our house...haven't done that yet) but, this piece of art just screamed for a place on our fridge.  I have never been so excited to stick something on my super clean fridge.  Three days later the art still adorns our fridge and I love it. 

My Little Miss is sick again due to teething.  I swear she gets sick once a month and it is always teething related with a low grade fever for about a week.  Would you believe she is already cutting her 2 year molars?  I thought we were going to have a little break since she has her 16 primary teeth in but, nooooooooo.  Also, we have a hurricane headed for our coast and it is expected to hit the coast around midday tomorrow.  Please keep the people out here in your prayers as this hurricane is looking pretty intense.  I'm not worried about us as we are pretty far inland but, you just never know.  Our friends are evacuating from the beach in Virginia and coming here for the weekend.  We will have a fun full house! I will keep you all posted.  Happy Friday friends.  xo

  1. Oh, my fridge is full of artwork!!! Though, I've seen tons of cute ideas for an art display wall & have yet to implement any of them. We're eventually going to move their playroom upstairs (and I'll have my dining room back - yay!) and I think I want to put cork or something one part of one wall for art display!

  6. That is a lot of scribbling. Great job Daisy!! B likes to scribble with a pen, but for the most part he still enjoys eating the crayons and trying to put them in the box and pull them out.

    Drawing the face and asking her to point out the various parts is a great idea. I'll have to try that.....B will point to them on our face, but still won't point out the various animals. That reminds me of something else we can work on.

  10. That looks so fun! I can't wait to do things like that with my little guy! Let me just say, if you are not an artist, then I am not even qualified to pick up a crayon. LOL I can draw flowers, and scenery with clouds, a sun, and grass. That's all!

  13. You are a better artist than I. LOL. What a great moment, to color and learn, and enjoy every second of it. Now, you're going to have to run to Michaels and stock up on finger paints and glue. My chloe loves to glue noodles to paper. It makes for an easy 30 minutes of entertainment for her :)
