Feel free to "pin" my gorgeous fridge! haha. Whenever I see pictures on Pinterest of kitchen ideas, etc. I always laugh to myself because clearly those people do not have children. Between the magnet toys and the art work you can barely see my fridge!
And seriously, what do you guys do with all your children's artwork?! These paper plates are what Raya and Brielle made this morning alone. That's not counting the millions of little scribbles we get sent home from preschool.
I've been trying to hang the items up on the fridge for one day and then secretly throw them away, but Raya is starting to remember and notice when things go missing. A few times she's gone to throw something away in the garbage and discovered her artwork....and then she gives me this heartbroken puppy dog face and says "Mommy, why did you throw my beautiful artwork away?" .....crap.
So is there something I'm missing here? What do you guys do with it, or discreetly get rid of it? I was thinking maybe I need to designate 2 magnets for artwork and she gets to choose what to keep and what to throw away...and let her be in charge or rotating it. BUT when I've suggested that in the past she doesn't like the idea of throwing anything away at all :-P
Here are some pics from art time this morning
|Her fingers are stained now...it won't come off!|
Besides art time today we played freeze dance. OMG, Brielle freeze dancing was HILARIOUS! She'd wiggle and dance and then I'd say FREEZE! and she'd get in these really strange poses and make me laugh and laugh!
