I got creative this afternoon and pulled out some kids paints and paper for Addie to play with. I stripped her down to her diaper and let her have at it. I discovered lots of supervision is still needed at 17 months. She tasted the paint twice and had no interest in painting the paper after I made the mistake of drawing a little purple circle on her belly. I'm not sure what I was thinking. She created a few masterpieces and then we both jumped in a bubble bath. Not bad for an afternoon.
