Alessandro and his mom had us over for a playdate today. We both had a wonderful time, although I think Alessandro and LP had even more fun than the moms for a change. Alessandro wanted to fingerpaint, and Dori, being the brave mom that she is, pulled out the paper and paints. The kids squirted, spread, and smushed the paint with their hands and with brushes, all across the long sheet of paper spread across the table.
Lilypad Princess tried to squirt more paint out of an almost empty bottle, causing the bottle to make noise. Alessandro thought that was hysterical so LP kept squeezing the bottle to keep him laughing. All it took was a little laugh out of one to get the other one going again.
They were both a mess by the time they were done, LP actually painted her arms until she looked like the Wicked Witch of the West. But the clean-up wasn't too painful (her dress is in the wash now) and any amount of clean-up was worth it for the amount of fun these two friends had together.
