Let’s Buy White… Said No Mother Ever

My mother the artist, she brings out the colorful, artsy side of my children. When they visit with her I make sure to pack extra clothes. One time my mother encouraged them to color of the walls in a place that she was staying to make the walls more fun. Needless to say it took me a long time to break my oldest of writing on the walls and I still find little doodles every now and then. 

Every time the kids draw on something they aren’t supposed to I send my mom a picture and tell her that it’s all her fault. She gets a good giggle out of it. Like the time my oldest drew balloons with her name in them on the back of her bedroom door with a Sharpie, or the time she took the pumpkin carving kit and carved a picture into the drywall. But who’s keeping count!?  o_O

The other day my youngest decided that she was going to color on our dinning room chairs. 



Our newest artist has emerged. Should I frame it? #LittlePicasso #parenting #motherhood

I didn’t panic because the chairs are just $10 covers from IKEA. I bought them because they are washable, but I still had to send the picture to my mom to show her that the next generation artist has emerged. Her text message back was priceless and I couldn’t stop laughing.


Me- This is your fault, I’m sure of it. 

My mother- Haha. I think I’ll buy white, said no mother ever. 

Me – Touché

She got me there.

  1. Oh man!! This totally made me laugh. My kids have had their fair share of major art debuts. Can’t say I’m ever thrilled about that, but you have a great attitude about it. We always know better, but sometimes we take the risk for something nice. Lesson learned!
