My Art Lessons Are Coming in Handy




Last weekend the stud hubs and I finally put on our big kid homeowner pants, busted out the paint cans, and converted a wall in the Bean's room from beige to chalkboard! 

He's very much so in the littlebig boy stage of go-go-go life these days. Stop, vroom his truck around, throw the basketball, eat a cheerio off the floor. Then, go-go-go again. 

It's hard to catch that wriggly footed pajama blur sometimes. 

After breakfast, I tried to tempt him with this chalk rendition of the almighty new favorite animal. 
And just like that, Bean paused long enough to tap out some dusty impressionist grass art for Mr. E to munch on. 

Athletic AND Artistic? 

The Bean could be quite the Renaissance Man, ahem, all you blog lady babies out there.

I just LOVE this idea!! I used to destroy the walls in my parent's house growing up because I would paint all over them- I'm sure this would have come in handy then ;)
