my little asher lev

“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.”



Handmade thank-you notes, an excellent activity for an afternoon too chilly for our noses.


His first real painting session.  Of course, he had to taste it once and then never considered putting paint in his mouth again.  No harm done.  Of course, he tried to paint his high chair and the kitchen table, but it was nothing that some soap and water couldn’t handle.  And of course, he was a super duper mess and has some paint in his hair for maybe 2 days, but that’s not uncommon around here, art is messy.

It was so fun and we loved every second of it.  I let him paint on one of my small, flat canvas boards because this one is a keeper.  I may not be good at keeping up with a baby book, but art, I can handle.

My little Asher Lev, I’m so proud.



  1. Oh yummy Asher, that looks tasty! =) LOL...He's an amazing artist! My children mostly used watercolors...but crayons, markers, chalk, play dough...we were always busy creating...they still love art!

  2. AMK, watercolors, why didn't I think of that... I was painting and using acrylics, so that's what he got.

    But watercolors are definitely a better choice.

    *Asher Lev is a reference to my favorite book, My Name is Asher Lev. Sometimes, I do call Hudson that :)


Here's the thing: I love your comments.
So thank you.

Have a lovely day.
Drink some coffee.
