I am back after going on a hunt to find the picture card reader. I put it in a special place so the children wouldn't play with it and I forgot where that special place was until today.
This week was my husband's birthday. My daughter suggested we get him a Dora guitar so she could play with it and my son agreed that would be good. Instead I had them make some art for his office. If I had been thinking I would have picked up the watercolor canvases when they were on sale a few weeks back, but I can't remember half the things on my grocery list when I have the list in my hand.
I started by asking them what are some things they like to do with their daddy. After we generated a list I had them chose one and paint a picture. On the back I had them tell me what it was and I wrote it, so in 5 years we won't be scratching our heads. Even the baby made one.
