Painting Again




We're almost out of white walls. That's fine with me, its so much work, but Eli came in to help me a little today. I was doing the detail work by the molding and windows with a paint brush and told him we do the big spaces with a roller because its faster, so he went and got the lint roller to show Wolfie how its done.

You see, he's getting a new room. Esme will move out of mine and into his old room that was turned into a nursrey by the people we bought the place from. I don't want them waking eachother up all night, so he'll move in where Manders was. They're both getting this great Martha blue on their walls because I love it so and one gallon can do both rooms. Can't wait to put things together, never decorated a kids room.

You let Eli paint in that nice shirt? Have fun decorating the kids rooms, it's one of my favorite things to do. When you come to visit we can paint the kids rooms, all three. I already have the colors in mind.

That is so cute he got a lint roller! What a nice mom to let a 3 year old help paint :) It looks like he was very careful.
I love the color!

That's a great color! It's gonna be so cute! I think it's a good idea for Eli to move downstairs...closer to the bathroom:)

Yes Manders! the bathroom was a major factor. And I am quite uptight about messes, he just happened to walk in and ask if he could help. How could I say no and I thought it would be fun for him to know he helped paint, even if it was just for a minute. At the end he wanted to clean off his random swipes with a rag.
