This morning before breakfast, I sprayed this little thrifted ceramic lamb. He had been hanging around for a few weeks and I didn't know what color I wanted him to be. It was around 1 a.m. this morning that I realized he needed to be pink. I almost did it then, but I didn't want the neighbors to think I had lost my mind. (Oh, by the way, my plant is dying. 'Nough said.)
I think the urgency for painting this lamb was due to the fact that the boys and I have been reading Goosebumps: Revenge of the Lawn Gnomes. I decided we needed an "evil" lawn (porch) ornament to keep them on their toes. We just finished the book this morning after breakfast. And they're begging for more ...
Every summer I read Goosebumps books to my boys. It's a tradition I started when Taylor and Carter were younger. Taylor no longer stays to listen, and half the time the younger ones are too afraid to listen, yet they beg for more, while covering their ears. Today (after they tidy their rooms) we will start Deep Trouble. We have quite a selection of Goosebumps, thanks to thrifting and eBay.
And look at my poor little man. Yesterday morning Sawyer took a tumble off the back of our floating sofa and fell head/face first into a toy box. His poor little eye is swollen and his cheek and nose. It breaks my heart.
