Aaron has a face painting kit, and has been requesting different designs. He sits uncharacteristically still (nearly whole three minutes!) for me while I paint, exclaiming, "It tickles!" When I finish my masterpiece and give him the okay, he sprints to the bedroom to view himself in the mirror. In that moment, I am deemed Best Mommy Ever. And by the expression on my son's face, I really do feel like a great mom.
Here are some of the face painting we have done. Animals, rainbows and ice cream - welcome to the world of my child.
Cat. I love his pose.
And the pièce de résistance, a butterfly.
