Staying Up Late on Mommy Daughter Day

I have a first grader now! She's happy to see all her little friends again! Me? I miss her terribly! So does Madeline...she's always excited to go and pick Lil up after school. I did not pose her with the purse, she found it all on her own and it cracked me up!

Awesome Guy is out of town tonight and we took full advantage after Madeline went to sleep. Lillian stayed up with me while I finished 4 paintings! The cupcake girl is still drying, sorry for the glare. All but the mermaid will go on ebay this week. Lil cried when she heard I was going to sell her and through her tears asked for her for her birthday. How could I say no to that? I have a mermaid story about her too...with a video...another post for another day...we are about to pass out over here!

The tray to the high chair looks gross, but that's not's paint! Madeline likes to paint too and I have a little watercolor set for her...she's always covered in paint by the end, but oh so fun!

Sweet dreams my bloggie friends!

can't wait to see more photos of these paintings...i LOVE them! said...

My little one enjoys painting too, but isn't old enough to paint along while I do. She is still at the point where I have to sit next to her or she paints everything. I'm certainly looking forward to the times when she can do hers while I do mine!

good for you to encourage your little daughter. It isn't easy to let them "help" but it is worth it!

How fun! I just bought my little one her first crayon set, I cant wait to have more 'mother daughter art sessions.' It must be quite a change for you to have a first grader! Ah, how time flies!~ THe paintings look so lovely too :)

It may not seem like it now but these early years go by so fast. Spent the summer looking for colleges for my eldest. Wasn't that long ago when I took a picture of her on her first day of school. Keep enjoying those small wonders.

I'll second Melissa's sentiments. My oldest will be starting his senior year of high school. Where does the time go???

So sweet with the little purse and I love how she's holding it!! As for your first grader -- they do grow up way too quickly Mere!! Your work is so beautiful and I'm glad you had some mommy daughter staying up late time!!!
