Red = Elmo

Lily sat at her easel yesterday, handed me one of the paint containers and pointed to the brushes.

Got it, Lily.

She wanted to paint. (this makes me so happy!)

I let her choose her colors when she paints.

This time, I let her choose 3.

She chose light blue, purple and red.

Red ended up being the most used color.

She painted and painted and after she was done, she looked at me, looked at the painting, looked back at me, smiled and said “Elmo!”.

She painted Elmo.

I love her!

P.S.- After she was done, she grabbed her camera (my old one that doesn’t work anymore) and took pictures of her work. I might be creating a monster…

how cute is her ponytail?


we hung (taped) some art 🙂
