Who knew bringing the kids' table out of the bedroom would create such a fun toy?They honestly sat perfectly still and watched an entire "Word World" episode without moving. I have no idea what Palmer's thinking but he looks pretty happy. Portia, as usual, is making sure she's not missing anything from Palmer. This isn't great of her face, but look how long her hair is getting. This was one of our many non-hairdo days. We have lots of those.
For some reason, whenever I tell Portia I want to take her picture, she stands by the front door. She is definitely unusual, but at least she's not a shy child.
I was organizing the kids' rooms one day and found the finger paints. Oh, yeah, I was trying to be a fun mom once and bought some washable finger paints. Since it was raining and the kids were a little crazy (mommy, too!) we pulled out the paints. This is typical Palmer, one finger at a time. I think he was trying to write his name. What a cute little nerd (it's not name-calling when it's a fact)!
Then there's Portia. Her expression, as usual, says it all. I think the paint was originally red, blue, green, and yellow. Somehow by the time it got on the papers and her arms, face, and clothes, it was brown. She even tried to lick the paint brush. This is why I never leave Portia alone for more than two minutes.
