My daughter Molly has the Learning Fair at her school this month. She brought her board home and Lilah proceeded to scribble all over it while I was in the shower a couple of weeks ago. As usual, my Maguiver mind was in full effect and I just told Molly that we would paint the whole thing black, put gold glitter all over it, and give it cheetah spots. She was satisfied with this- tantrum averted.
Today I decided it was time to paint the board. I stripped them out of their clothes and sent them outside with paint brushes and paint and told them to work on it while Nate and I made dinner. While he and I were joining our creative forces to come up with the most amazing spice rubbed pork with apple chutney EVER, the girls "worked" on their project.
I was just putting the finishing touches on the salad when Lilah came in covered from the neck down in black paint. Molly followed, a little less paint covered, but still a hot mess. I was PISSED! I whisked them both into the shower and they proceeded to inform me that they were, and I quote:
"Pretending to be black people."
Needless to say, I was no longer angry. I am still laughing as I am writing this. This was WAY too funny not to blog. Hopefully the girls got to experience their inner Beyonce tonight.
I will post the recipe for our Paleo friendly dinner as soon as I figure out the measurements. The girls requested to have it again tomorrow, so I will figure out the ratios then. Hopefully they will be satisfied being white tomorrow night when I'm making it.
