A Day Of Firsts
Nick had his first painting experience today at almost 21 months old. While he liked using the brush to paint, as soon as he got a little paint on his finger he wasn't so sure he liked it anymore. So after two quick pictures, a little paint in the mouth and hair, it was time to clean up, which he enjoyed immensely. Anytime we tell him "go wash hands", you hear him yelling "HAND, HAND" and the pitter patter of little feet running to the bathroom.
Katie, on the other hand, had her 1st viewing of the Wizard of Oz, which lasted approximately 20 minutes. Just long enough for her to make it through the black-and- white footage, and get her first glimpse of the wicked witch of the west. Promptly as Dorothy got the magic red ruby slippers, Katie declared this movie to be too scary, and that was the end of that. I had debated off and on, when would be a good age to introduce her to such a great classic movie, knowing full well what an impression the wicked witch once had on me, but decided to just let her see it anyway. Obviously 4 is still too young. Maybe next year!
