Pastels and Paint

This is my photo submission for


The challenge is "pastels" and I love how Em's bedroom is full of them.  Especially her beautiful pastel-colored butterfly mobile.


My mom and sisters think it's creepy but I love it and so does baby girl.  I love her room, full of soft pinks and yellows, and I think that is the fundamental difference between having boys and girls.  Boys are primary colors, girls are pastels.  That about sums them up.

Wait until you see her birthday outfit.  Pastel perfection!

And this is the photo I submitted for

 
After our fabulous Easter craft yesterday, we had a plate full of fingerpaint.  I think I'd get arrested for crimes against humanity if I washed gobs of fingerpaint down the drain with two kids under three present and eager to create.  So we ended our day as it began, but with more art than craft this time.  And Em made her very first fingerpainting!  I was going to give it to my sister but once I remembered it was Em's very first one (and that my sister doesn't like my mobile) I decided to keep it and paint for others another day.  Here we are afterward:
 



Expect to see more of this face!  This is the kind of mess I can handle.

Very pretty butterflies! You sum it up perfectly, between pastels and primary colors. I have one of each. Isn't childhood grand?
