What do you do when you first wake up? Do the zombie walk to the coffee pot? Exercise? Make breakfast for the kids? Most days, I wake up twenty minutes before the kids so I can check email and browse Google Reader for some early morning inspiration. Sometimes it helps give me direction for dinner. If I'm lucky, I get inspiration for something new to do with the kids. Today was a lucky day.
I read Ashleigh's post about making “secret message” paintings with her kids, then jumped right up, grabbed some white construction paper, and scrawled messages to my kids with a white crayon. After breakfast, I asked them if they wanted to paint. You can see the rest for yourself.
(Hers said, “Hello my lovely. Thank you for painting me! ♥”)
