curtain play


This morning Adelaide was playing in the curtains. I happened to glance over at just the right moment, and in doing so I discovered a masterpiece! 

Perhaps I am odd to find joy in scribbles on my walls - but they make me happy and I don't have the heart to wash them off. To me, they are so beautiful!

discovered masterpiece by you.

Hugo left sooty handprints allll the way up our stairwell many months ago. I left one behind while cleaning up. It warms my heart to see its shape and its closeness in height to the stairstep below.

Love your photos.

I remember being so proud of my son's first scribbles too, never mind that they were on the closet doors. I did promptly show him other options: paper, Magic Sketcher, crayons, pencils, pens. He, of course, had his own ideas: permanent markers on tables, mostly. :)

HI! my name is pangcha and although i did ask this question before i completely forgot where i asked it..? anyway, i am in love with how your camera captures the moment of everything Adelaide! i know you asked a lot, but what camera do you use? so that i may capture precious moments of my own! =)

Gorgeous soft images. The scribbles are nice as is the shade of blue on your wall! When my little one is old enough I'm planning on using chalkboard paint (in a great shade of orange called 'oompa lumpa') on a wall so he can draw freely on there. Also love your new kitchen installation...beautiful

HI Everyone: thank you for leaving comments - i love reading every one of them.

Pangabanga - I'm sorry, i sometimes lose track of comments! I actually have a Nikon D50 that i use with an older lens that i've had for years. I love this camera and recommend it (and most Nikons) highly!

Jodi: i've also been considering chalkboard paint - but for my studio wall!!!

I'm so glad to see so many laid back mammas. I love mine to death, but if I'd have done that as a child, I'd still be punished. lol Yay for being laid back, yah for encouraging their creativity even at such a young age. One day, I hope to be such a momma.

Your go-with-the-flow attitude will serve you well in the coming months and years! I also think it is totally adorable. Permanent Sharpie ink...not so much. :)

I really loved this post - I love even more that you're living such a wonderful life here in Vancouver. I borrowed the scribble picture for my own scribbles (in words)about my nephew. Hope you don't mind, it's on my blog. Jen

If you ever do want to clean it off, Mr. Clean Magic Eraser Sponges take off everything! You can pick up the generic version at Target.
As for chalkboard paint, they also make magnetic primer. So you could make a wall both magnetic & chalkboard. Plus now they have (whiteboard) dry-erase paint.
