thinking of how to include your little one in some last minute mother’s day love? buy watercolor paints ($4.50 at your local art supply store), grab some heavier weight paper, and get to painting! ramona and max had a riot pointing to the color on the palette that they wanted to use (and i would speak it back to them), and then taking their turns w the brush and making their mark. i’ll cut the paper in quarters and write a note on the back to send to the mama’s in our life. easy peasy lemon squeezy. and the kids got to flex their artistic muscles AND learn color names in the process.
elsewhere on the interwebs (i gotta lot for you this week!):
lots of new babies (either arrived or soon!) in my family and community. a poem i’ll be passing onto every mother: the only thing you remember is your life, by pablo neruda that speaks so perfectly to the experience.
