I first finger painted with Vance when he was 18 months old. He was laid back and never tried eating any of the art materials I had presented to him. Vaughn, on the other hand, is wired a different way and I held off with the finger painting until yesterday. (She's 28 months old.)
She surprised me. She didn't want to really get into it. I thought she'd be balls out and up to her ears in paint and I had to coax her in. I know she's finger painted at school before so this wasn't totally new to her, but still she surprised me.
What's really mind boggling is the fact that up until last week this was one of Vance's under shirts. I knew they're were getting too small for him but I didn't think they would fit Vaughn that well.
Kids. Always a surprise.
