I tend not to like messes and there was a lot of clean up (figuring out how to get feet clean without tracking paint all over the house, getting clothes off kids without getting more paint on their clothes, drying the paper without getting paint all over). I think you see the trend-not getting paint all over. I tend not to get paint out very often because it is just too messy. I need to figure out how to let my kids paint without me worrying about the mess.
I asked N2 what we should get Brian for father's day and their generic answer is an adult movie (no, not that kind of movie). This year they also included beer. They know Brian enjoys trying new kinds of beer. So I took Natalie (Noah didn't want to go) to Trader Joe's to pick out beer. She wanted a small shopping cart so all the beer went in her cart. This made me feel a little wrong :)
This summer N2 got up before Brian and I. It was not uncommon for us to come down and find N2 playing a board game. This particular morning they were playing while eating and their animals were also playing.
