Even though you know there is bound to be paint somewhere that needs scrubbing despite ALL the paint already tucked up and away on the highest shelf.
Even though little hands will not follow ever-so-carefully demonstrated directions of how to keep colors seperated and beautiful.
Even though it takes way longer to prepare to paint then it does to actually partake in painting.
Even though the very thought of allowing paints out makes you cringe in absolute fear and terror.
Sometimes you just have to say yes because there will never be a right time and you can’t imagine any other project that brings such intense joy and concentration to their sweet faces.
This is the mantra I’m still telling myself. I took pictures to prove to me how right I was to say yes. I knew I had to because tomorrow when I do find that mysterious paint spill somewhere other than where they painted, I will need to look at the pictures and remind myself all over again why I said yes as I alternate breathing and counting to ten and scrubbing.
