One Brave Mama!

Either I'm brave or just plain stupid but I pulled out the finger paints for James and Audrey last week and they had a blast making a huge mess! Audrey being the prissy thing that she is was very hesitant at first to get her fingers dirty and I don't think she ever got her palms in the paint! James on the other hand, dove right in and got it all over his hands, ears and face with in seconds!
My camera battery ran out before they were done playing so I didn't get any shots of them looking like little indians ready for battle! And in my excitement to let them finger paint, I didn't think the whole process through so thank goodness Jon was home to help me carry them out on the deck for a hose off! Next time we'll do it outside but I did managed to keep the paint off everything but them and their high chairs!

Last Friday James finally had his OT evaluation. I had to carry him to a rehab center for the appointment and it was a pretty cool place. All kinds therapies for all kinds of children with all sorts of disabilities, it was very interesting but I am so very thankful that he gets PT at home! Anyway, the therapist only wants to see him every other week for a couple of months to "watch" him. The only problem she saw was his range of motion from left to right. Meaning, we have to work with him to cross over to his right side using his left arm. And we being me since technically I am his therapists. These college educated, board certified people just tell me what to do with him! There job is easy!

They look like they're not too sure about what they were doing... You're brave and good to allow them to GET MESSY!

Glad to hear the another good report from another eval...

'manda, forgive me the repeat: You ROCK, Little Mama. What deliciously creative activities you give these children that allows them to experience such textures and tastes and feels...I'm surprised James didn't "tongue" the paint...better than I EVER did with my children! I wish I had been more "relaxed" and let them explore. Beautiful pictures.

You should probably sell their little masterpieces. I saw some abstract pieces the other day that were quite similar to James and Audrey's and they were selling for a couple hundred bucks each!
