picasso in the making?

One of the things I put in my kids plastic easter eggs was bath crayons and so far they've been a big hit. I was determined to minimise the amount of chocolate the kids got this year so figured I would buy them next to none and see how we went... and we got tonnes of the stuff from family and friends so thankgawd I didn't buy heaps. Anyway, the bath crayons are in use daily, starting on paper and my kitchen bench - toddlers love drawing! Once we showed them that they work in the bath, there has been no turning back. The creations by Monkey Man and Missy Moo are truly works of art, not that I'm biased or anything. On Friday night I was busy dressing Little Miss and Missy Moo after their baths while Monkey Man had a shower next to us. It turns out the crayons work in the shower too... When I went to get him out of the shower I was greeted with this creation, which I haven't had the heart to wash off yet.

Would you like to draw too Mummy?

Seriously, this kid kills me everyday, the way he takes everything in, copies everything and wants to know everything. Everyone says 2 is terrible, but personally apart from a few tantys and a bit of an attitude, 2 for Monkey Man has been awesome. I love watching him develop everyday, seeing him care for, play with and love his little sisters, hearing him talking to his toys or his friends, he's counting all day long, and is funny, really really funny... He's mastered saying his whole name too, which is just so cute! I just love him! I can't believe he will be 3 in just 3 short months.

Fingers crossed 2 is just as kind to Missy Moo and Little Miss. How exactly does one deal with a 1, 2 and 3 year old all at once??



  1. Oh my LORD he is cute!

    And this idea is brilliant!

    (seriously never knew such a thing existed).

    Kudos to the non chocolatey far better with water crayons Easter.

    And three cheers for this amazing age :)
