Seriously, how do you resist a kid who wakes up saying “I love painting Mum”.

Resistance is futile.
It’s rather like trying to resist a really big hug, and a plea, ‘Mum, can we do something together, like drawing?”. Like, the answer is ever going to be no?

It’s the Paul Mercurio styled Bond singlet underneath the art smock that got me.

I thought you would like this.
Back on topic: Exploding Boy has started dragging me away from various tasks to teach him new guitar chords, and then actually practicing them. W00t! I’ve been trying to light the touchpaper for yonks, and I think it’s actually lit this time. (Another exploding metaphor-if he gets any good I hope he doesn’t go the way of Spinal Tap.)

Yes Helen, I did like the Age reporting veggie gardening as a new thing! At least they’ve noticed, sure they’re a few years late, but they’ve noticed. Maybe they’ll start reporting Permablitzes soon.
Congratulations on Exploding Boy catching the guitar-playing bug. Tis a tricky business waiting for kids to be interested in the stuff you’re desperate for them to like (but patience pays off far more than shoving it in their faces I reckon).

No Shula, I don’t. But today “I love painting” turned into “I neeed to paint”.
We gave him textas and crayons instead and left him with Granma.
