Another Fine Mess

Because there is so much "No."

So many "Don'ts"

A lot of "Stop!"

A bunch of "Wait!"

And many a refrain of "No! Don't! Stop! Wait!"

Sometimes...

Just sometimes...

A great big "Yes! Go For It!"

is truly the finest thing ever!

Happy Monday!

I bet the bath tub had a ring of blue. Fun times.

Carol said...

Brilliant. That is what I believe, if there is no good reason for saying 'no' then why not say 'yes'

Love it! Yes, there are way too many no's, often for good reason, but still, a resounding YES can be wonderful!

You have to shout YES sometimes! My two did this last summer, it took 2 baths to get them clean. Happy days.

Love it!! Can't let Busy see that she will get ideas... i do find myself saying those words, I would also add " be careful" to the list.

What a dream come true! Gorgeous photos -- you have certainly mastered that camera. :)

Looks like a summer time project, so you can hose them off before they come in the house!

Very fun!!

Sometimes you just gotta go with the flow!

Michelle said...

Oh what fun! I would love to just shrink down to Pony Girl's size and go to town with those paints! Ah, the joys of childhood. You did good by giving her a "yes" on this one, as she will remember this freedom for a long time.

YES!

(and maybe there's an understudy position available on the Blue Man Crew...)

Brilliant! My youngest comes home from pre school most days looking not dissimilar!

Pomona said...

You're a wonderful mother and a braver woman than me. I sent them to nursery school for paint, etc, as I couldn't stand the strain (and the mess, and the clearing up)!!

How I envy Pony Girl! Makes me want to paint myself, but I'd be the one to have to clean up. Hmmm. I wonder if Emma the Beautiful Calico Queen would like to play in paints?
