Today I tried finger painting with the Baby Monster for the first time. I used a recipe that my sister found online for edible finger paint. You can find it here.
I have been looking for something safe that the monster could create with and eat, as he is still at the phase of putting anything that happens into his hand directly into his mouth. During this little event, I’d say about 5% of what he touched went into his mouth. Overall, I’d say that is a success!

Of course the Beast managed to get in on the action. At one point I looked down at him and he had managed to get pink fingerpaint in the fur on the top of his head. I wish I had gotten a photo of that; I thought the bright pink against his black fur was quite striking. Reminded me of some of the color combinations I would put together for myself in the 80’s.

It was a lot of fun to do and something I would like to continue doing with him as he gets older. He was smiling and laughing, and my husband and I were still speaking to each other at the end of it. I will say that the lesson learned here is to either dress your baby and yourself in clothes that can be stained, or just go naked.


The Monster and the Beast

This blog is dedicated to my Monster and my Beast.

Hello! And thank you for reading my blog! I don’t intend a specific theme for this blog, but I can say that there will likely be a lot of posts about my baby, the Baby Monster, and my dog, the Beast.
