Great! Ok, now let's get Adele painting...
Perfect! Ok, now they are both occupied, I should empty the dishwasher!
I turned back after opening the dishwasher door and... please don't paint in your hair Adele!
Thirty seconds later... Adele! Paint goes on the paper!
Adele... what are you doing?!
How's Fiona doing? Just fine. Ok, great.
I refocus Adele on painting on the paper instead of herself and assist Fiona with some parts of her project. I look up and realize Adele is painting the chair next to her and when I walk around the table I found that she's also quietly peed all over the chair she's sitting on (yep, potty training).
I clean her up and pop a diaper on her (yep, giving up, maybe she'll be potty trained by high school). I walk to the bathroom to deal with the laundry and on my return I find... this.
Adele has now decided that her mouth tastes funny and she's done with painting. So... now what? Adele's covered in paint but Fiona is having a great time and needs some help with the rest of her project. Where do you contain a very painty child when you're trying to pay attention to her sister too? The sink!
At which point it seemed like a good idea to have a one of these.
YAY! Sink bath!!
Fiona and I made some more things for Dino Land and then she got to work adding the lava.
After Adele started eating all the bubbles sink bath was over. Fiona put the finishing touches on Dino Land and the Dinosaurs got to check it out. They were too excited to wait for the paint to dry so got to have some fun stomping around making footprints. The Dinos needed a bath later too, but Fiona took care of that for me.
Despite the incredible mess we all had a lot of fun :-)
And no, I never did manage to get the dishwasher emptied!
