Brian had off today. We were suppose to be going to the Toledo zoo but ended up changing our minds since I wasn't feeling up to walking and being 3 hours away from my hospital if something were to happen. Instead I talked him into starting on Austin's room. Since the room was originally a bright green we knew we needed to primer first.

Brian had put down the drop clothes and taped everything off that wasn't going to turned white with primer. Ella decided she wanted to help. How can you say no to a sweet little innocent 3 year old who wants to help prepare for her brothers arrival.
The best way to not have to worry about ruining any clothes is to just paint naked. Which she didn't have any issue with. Ella already thinks we live in a nudist colony.
She started off doing really well with a paint brush and just painting here and there. Then she asked for the roller and Brian would help her do the wall with the roller. Then things went down hill. Ella was painting the wall by herself and the next thing we hear is "I'm going to paint myself". I look over and see her gorgeous legs. I decided after that we were done. But first...
She needed her belly painted since the rest of her was already painted. Then it was bath time anyways. Mental note to self do not get primer on yourself or anyone else it is a pain in the butt to get off. It took me a good 20 minutes of scrubbing and using Ella's gentle soap since she has sensitive skin, to get all the paint off. I won't be doing that again with primer. I will do it again with regular wall paint though that comes off so much easier.
I can't wait to see his room finished.
