Su,s house is home to the biggest collection ever of Lego and Duplo. I have never seen so much in one place. Maisie loved it. I had a doctors appointment and so left them to it and when I got back Bekah had made a farm with her and here's Gorgeous George operating the never ending train.
Just like her Dad and Grandad, builders bum..!!
" no I didn't like it, I liked it lots and lots and lots of likes.."" yup I,m confused as well.
We then swung round Matalan where we purchased this seasons must have, co-ordinated set of rubber duckies and floats. I managed to avoid buying any shoes because I was informed
"Mama, you haven't got enough days left to wear the ones you have, and they are all the same and boring"
So that told me. Mind you there were some stunning bronze metallic 5 inch lace ups that were to die for. With any luck they will sell out of my size soon..!!!
Maisie needed a wee but the toilets in Matalan were closed so unfortunately we had to improvise with McDonalds. Whilst in there it seemed rude to use the facilities without dining and a Happy Meal was gratefully devoured. She was in shock as she doesn't normally get such pleasures from me. Then it was on to the garden centre to see all the fishes, ponds, plants, frogs, and patterned wellies. Oh yes she was amazed cos they are all fancier wellies than hers.
Finally we arrived home ready to paint her masterpieces. We rolled back the rug, stripped to0 undies ( don't panic, I meant Maisie not me ). and started. First of all she primed the bauble.
We speeded up the drying time with a hair dryer.
And then base coated it again.
We hung it up to dry and Maisie cleaned up her mess, well you have to start them young don't you..??
Then we started on the wooden trio. Look how carefully she paints, I often forget she is still a toddler. Mind you she has been painting with us all since she was one year old, and Jay is as much a stickler for teaching her properly as I am, lol.
Onto the stars.
And the first hat and scarf had to be her favourite colour.
and the spots and stripes for the hats and scarves.
We cheated and she added the eyes and mouth with a Sharpie pen
How proud does she look..??
Awwwww I just love it soooooooo much. She is available for commissions, but be warned her fee always includes an hours trampolining and Fox,s party rings.
By now the bauble was dry so we added the details together.
Painting in the nose.
And then the eyes
She helped with her name on the back and then drew kisses over it.
Oh forget to tell you that this snowman has hair, because Maisie thought he would be too cold otherwise.
I was telling her how proud I was of her and how she was so clever that it wouldn't be long before she could come to my regular kids workshops. She thought that was fabby and asked if she could teach some of them...!!!!!! I laughed and said yes, and she could come and teach the ladies as well. She replied
"no thanks Mama, cos they never listen to you"...!!!
How astute is that eh. I thought it was hilarious.. In this picture she was giggling so much that she trumped on my leg, lmao.
Aww I love her to death, she is my little ray of sunshine. Then it was bath and cartoons. She wanted toast, and whilst I was bringing the washing in, it got stuck in the toaster and burnt. I told her I would make some more but she insisted that she would eat it burnt. I said you cant eat it burnt, babe. to which her answer was that's the only way it comes in our house Mama..!!! Priceless...
