My sister, also known as the amazing planner, wrangled the kids for an afternoon of painting with three kinds of paint. When he walked in, B dropped this inspired bit of artistic knowledge:
Remember kids, when it comes to art, what you paint on the page is just as important in what you don't.
While brilliant, his thoughts didn't quite garner the response, or attention, that you might have assumed. After all, when the oldest at the table is three and the youngest is eating the paint, it's more of an impressionistic crowd.
