Sidewalk Paint Art

I found a recipe online for sidewalk paint and gave it a shot. It worked well but was very runny. I made green, red, blue, and yellow and was hoping the kids would enjoy the different colors. Well, my sweet Peyton decided to mix them all and so we ended up with dirt brown. But they did have a ton of fun playing with it.

My musing for today includes this: why does Liam decide to poop just after I put him down for nap? He has been doing this almost every day for the past 2 weeks or so. I'll get him down for nap, go downstairs and open my Bible, start reading, and then, "Mama.....I pooped!" He did it today and now will not settle in and rest. He is screaming my name, singing the little skunk song, throwing things out of his crib, etc. It is going to be a very long evening because when Liam doesn't nap, he's a huge grumpy whiny mess. At least Nonna is coming. He'll probably be on his best behavior for her.

JMU versus William & Mary tomorrow....woo hoo! My mom and I are going to the game. It is supposed to be very windy and possibly rainy, but I'm still looking forward to it.

Ok, so put your kid down for a nap, and then as soon as he falls asleep quickly wake him up and say, "Hey do you have to poop!" Ok so thats a bad idea.

Actually I don't think that's such a bad idea Dan.

He's a pretty clever little guy, I bet he might get it. And there is the added potty-training bonus if he says "Yes."

By the way, I'm also the dad in this equation.
