"rainbow"

sunday morning~
hubby is away on business~
I went to bed at 3 in the morning~
little one woke up at 7~
I manage to nap a bit in his room while he plays with his legos~
at 8, he's all ready for his usual 'loud' play~
now what?~
I can't stand noise~
think, woman! think!~
'how about playing "rainbow" on the balcony?'~
yay! he gets excited!~
brushes, watercolours, drawing pad, milk, coffee, magazine~
ready:
"so, tell us my little friend, how old are you?"
"I'm five, Mr Chris"~
phew! all's well that ends well!

'Rainbow' is the name of a children's programme we watch every afternoon after school; the host reads letters, makes crafts, chooses books and welcomes children to the studio, where they paint and talk about themselves.

I have to say, it was quick thinking on my part, which proved to be very successful!


PS. Excuse the punctuation; I felt like playing a bit.

Always a good idea - paints eh?! Quite the little artist isn't he? Hope you will have a good night's sleep tonight and get back your mojo!!

Three in the morning is rather late to be going to bed - you must be exhausted. I hope you sleep well tonight :-)

Other than not getting enough sleep....it sounds like it was a pleasant Sunday!

Best wishes!

Great idea! Seems when kids have a chance to be creative they entertain themselves so much better than when we simply try to entertain them :)

Awww... This was such a nice peak into your lives. I wish I had been there to join in the fun.
