Sylvia and I recently had some fun with pudding. It reminded me of almost exactly one year ago when I did the same thing with X-Man. Still miss him, still think about him, still pray for him.
Sylvia agreed with X-man – eating the pudding is much more fun than playing in it. I tried to smoosh her hands in it just like I did with him. “See, look! It’s so much fun to make a mess in the pudding!!” But Sylvie was not so much into the painting aspect of this craft.
Once she couldn’t get any more up, she grabbed my hand and used it as a squeegee and then licked it off to get the rest. She’s resourceful.
“Mom, you wanted me to waste all this goodness on finger painting? Have you tasted this???”
(Yes. That is another shiner on her right eye. That would make for number 4. If she just didn’t run so much – and in circles to boot!)
