Life With Wee People: To Paint Or Not To Paint
Ever try painting your apartment with curious kids around? Can't get much done with Stephen the Blur Minion sticking his hands where they don't belong. His fave thing to do? Touch the wet wall and wipe my clothes (LOL). Noah is really cool because he likes to paint and is very good at using the roller. Stephen is another experience. He likes chasing us with the paint rollers. I have to keep pausing then sticking us in the shower so the only thing I have managed to finish so far is "applesauce" on the inlay door panels and "banana cream" on the radiator and window sills. This is going to take a while... I need a break. Time to go outside. :-)
We're going to the park so the shorties can get some fresh air. Stephen has not been feeling well and ran a temperature on Friday. Noah refused to go to school without Stephen and since they were both snotty I let them stay in bed most of the day. You'd think I'd have made progress painting the bathroom but every time I cracked a can of custom colored latex primer they'd both bounce up ready to help. Of course I let them (LOL). :-)
We have to show houses later today. I figure a break would be nice and an excursion to the park would be a good test run to see how Stephen is feeling about running around for an hour. If he curls up on a bench and/or lays down on a slide I am canceling all of my appointments and going back home. If they climb like monkeys then I'm going to have a good work day. It's too early to tell if we will be roaming the streets or hugging the blankies. When the boys don't feel well we usually cuddle up and watch TV. If we do go back home the only question remaining is to paint or not to paint... I have sundance yellow, jasmine white and dried palm to spread all over the walls. I would love to get that done by next week end. I have canvas that need to be hung. I'm working on several portraits. :-)
