There is no better way to see each of the little people's individual personalities than when engrossed in a project. The time spent painting this weekend was especially delightful, since everyone was happy in their task for longer than five minutes.
Until recently, Benett hasn't been especially interested in many kinds of art. But if his tongue is any indication, even he enjoyed this project. He was so proud of his picture... as finishing touches, he added a "B" for Benett and a "D" for Daddy. It was pretty great. When he's done, he's done. It's pretty easy for B to get up and walk away.
Gavin and Ellie are very different. They'll paint their respective pages until there is no white space remaining. Ellie's was an especially sloppy mess when we decided to move on to a new activity. I say "we" decided to move on... but she took some convincing. I may or may not have bribed her away from the project with a snack.
She's finally feeling better, so a few extra calories was a win-win in this situation. Although, I'm afraid she managed to share her bug. Mom's aren't supposed to get sick, yet here I am. I only hope it passes quickly...
