To the Louvre and Beyond

When you are a mom to three children aged 5 and under, you spend a lot of your "free time" on the weekends doing things you wouldn't normally do.

Like, wiping poopy bottoms.

Making three different breakfastes.

Brushing Barbie hair.

Losing on purpose at Sponge Bob Squarepants Connect 4.

Prying crusty play-doh out of the play-doh ice cream maker thingy.

Putting on Buzz Lightyear costumes.

Taking off Buzz Lightyear costumes.

Watching Yo Gabba Gabba.

Denying marshmallow snacks.

And water-coloring ten million pictures.

I think I'm getting pretty good, though.  Think I could sell any of these?  For at least enough to pay for a babysitter?





Hmph.  Although I guess all the great artists were unappreciated during their lifetimes.

Oh, you are absolutely another Picasso in the making or maybe you're more like Monet. I definitely see talent both in your painting and your mommy skills!

Bethany @ Organic Enchilada said...

I'd buy those! You make me want to break out the paint!

Jen said...

You really have a talent there. :)

Kmama said...

I'm just impressed that you actually paint WITH them. I'd just set them up and take off. LOL

I LOVE them - and I would totally show up at "mommy's" exhibit!

Steph said...

I love your list of can'tbelieveIdoallthesethings activities! But I love your artwork even more, especially the tree!

I don't know girl, have you seen some of the "art" out there thats catching millions? I'm thinkin you could at least buy a pack of gum!

Helene said...

I'd totally buy them...especially the one with the house. Makes me feel all happy.

Your weekend routine sounds a lot like mine, right down to wiping poopy butts and making several different breakfasts. I hate that ice cream playdough thingie...HATE it with a passion.

Your use of color and light are visionary! :)

awww. cuteness. love the solar system one. you could have your own showing.

Katherine said...

These are fabulous. I would be very proud of myself. My water color skills involve me dropping huge splatters of paint on the paper and blowing them around with a straw.

I love the planets one!!

So where are the Buzz Lightyear photos?

Christina said...

Very pretty. :)

Emily said...

I say, throw 'em up there on E-Bay. You never know what someone will pay for. A few bucks toward a baby-sitter is nothing to sneeze at! Hey, these days, you can probably get your baby-sitter on E-Bay too!

i sign my coloring book pages, too. with the date. yes, i'm a tool.

not to mention - this making different breakfasts? what is WITH that? i make 3, too. just silly.

Jami said...

I love them! You should make a gallery in your home, though that won't get you a babysitter, will it? Great frames.

Hang 'em on the fridge!
