Children are smart, and Madison has "picked up" on this. On Sunday evening, after an emotionally draining weekend for my husband and me, Madison begged and begged to spend the night with us.
It was already 9:30 pm, Madison hadn't had a bath, and honestly, I was exhausted. I promised her if she would go home to sleep, she could come over the following day. She wasn't sold on the idea, but after two hugs, she finally agreed to go home.
Madison and I began our day with a little water color painting. Madison is definitely improving with her paining skills. For some reason, she always wants to begin painting with the color black! I always have to explain to her that it's better to use black last so it doesn't mess up the other colors...
We soon got out the play dough which is always fun for Madison. She loves to play with these crazy dolls that grow play dough hair. Don't you just love those scissor skills in the picture above?
