Watch out Monet

One of Olivia's birthday presents this year was a set of wooden dollhouse furniture that came with paint and other decorations. What a wonderful gift for Olivia! Of course, also a LOT of work for mommy and daddy. A 4-year-old, paint, and something you want nice enough to be able to use takes a LOT of supervision. Add little brother who wants to be a part of everything into the mix, and you had one hectic morning for two parents.

First, daddy painted with Olivia for a few hours while mommy took Noah on errands. The furniture was coming along very nicely. White, red, blue, and yellow paint became all kinds of shades inbetween. The chairs focused on the primary colors, while mommy's favorite was the table that had a pink top and purple base. When daddy's energy was fully depleted, mommy took over and finished up the painting for awhile while daddy took Noah-duty. The last remaining color was made, green, which did not look at all purposeful.

Finally all the furniture was painted by Olivia and then made to look presentable as much as possible by daddy or mommy. All-in-all a great morning.

Here's the final product. I bet you can guess which pieces were done first and which were done last. :-)

    Jessica, if you want more comments, you can change your setup to allow all comments, that might help! Before I started a blog, I usually posted anonymous comments b/c I didn't want to register with yet another website.
