If You Can't Beat 'Em.....

Oh I just have to share!!! Number 4 has been driving me crazy. Nothing new, but in a new way. When we moved into our home just over a year ago, we painted his room because we had to tear down some seriously hideous wallpaper.  DH very lovingly decorated it with a fisherman theme.

To which he is still pretty committed.
No changing it at this point. 

However, #4 has decided to take up another new hobby. He is picking the paint off his walls, (down to the drywall in some spots). Every morning when I go in I have to steel myself to keep from giving him the reaction he is looking for. And he is very tuned in. Even a brief flash of my eyes in the vicinity is satisfying for him!  Despite my having a vivid imagination, in reality there is no way to stop him doing it. So, what to do, what to do…….

I decided to join him! Today while he was at school, I had some great fun!!! Just me, my fingers, and some left over paint samples. I guess there’s a little bit of the tagger in all of us, not matter how old we get.

Now I can’t keep myself out of his room!

 I. love. It!

 Just have to keep a lid on the glee when he sees it.

    1. Hi Katie,
      He was NOT pleased! Kind of funny. He makes it look terrible but then says, "WHAT did you do to my room?" I said I thought it looked like fun and we could do it together! He did a little more specific picking, then stopped when I got excited to do more too!!! Very pleasant experience for me all the way around, which is the only way to stay sane. :)
