She's an Artist, she don't look back...

There are things I completely suck at as a mom...I'm terrible at playing dolls or house (I space out about 2 mintes in and remember all the "chores" I need to do), I don't get her out much in the cold, she watches way too much TV in the winter (although I'm hooked on Charlie and Lola too)... but I could dance "ballet" all day long, read to her for hours and love to do art projects...she's been really into watercolors lately...I love that we can leave them out and when she gets the whim she just paints away... not nearly as messy as fingerpaints and a lot more satisfying than crayons...and the colors turn out so beautiful!  What are your favorite toddler activities?

 I love this Indie Rock Coloring Book - great, whimsical illustrations

Here's a few shots of Lila rockin out at The Current's Rock the Cradle last weekend...It was a blast!!

She was particularly enchanted with Jeremy Messersmith...

I thought Koo Koo Kangaroo was hysterical...(you can download free music from their site)

and groovin to Adam Levy's Bunny Clogs - a great kid's cd that won't make your ears bleed...


  1. nice watercolors! over here we like cornstarch goo (you can find a recipe if you google it) &it works for both the 22month and 3.5yo...the 3.5yo &i are off to make cookies (another favorite winter sport.)

  2. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. Lila is so cute. SO grown up. I love the coral ballgown skirt!!

  3. Cute cute cute! I love her outfit in the last photo. And what an awesome idea for an event...

  4. I love Charlie and Lola, too! Your little Lila is adorable!

  5. Your little girl is aDORable! Thanks for posting about the coloring book. I have a 4 y/o niece who is totally into music. Have you heard of Justin Roberts?
    Shameless plugging for my friends...

  6. Thank you so much for this adorable post. We do love dance, read and do art projects. Actually we are running out of water colors and will buy some tomorrow. I am a full time mom of two little girls, living in downtown Montreal and I have been reading your blog for a few weeks now and have recently created my own blog since I found it so much fun. I write in spanish!

  7. Thanks Everyone!! Love, Love hearing from everyone!!


I'm hanging on your every word...let me know what you think!
