Two seconds to tribal.

Little L loves to draw and paint and cut and color. She has a penchant for markers rather than crayons since they are more vibrant and can be used to write on practically anything, includeing herself. Give the girl a marker and she will decorate herself in three seconds flat - give the girl some paint and she is up to her elbows before you have even set out any paper.

Yesterday, she and her siblings painted the entire kitchen table with fingerpaints... I am still wiping off the remnants of their creativity. When I asked what happened, Little L proudly told me that she painted her arms, elbows, hands, legs, knees and belly... I asked if she painted her nose, and she giggled and scrunched it up and me saying "nooooo, not my nose!" How silly of me.

A note about these pictures - I was in the basement working in the office and when I came upstairs I found Little L like this - pouting. When she realized she wasn't going to get in trouble (I grabbed my camera instead) she decided her new look was the perfect disguise for "Superbaby" and thus began launching herself off of the ottoman on to the Fat Boy beanbag chair crying "Superbaby!" for about an hour.
