Just like most other things, this didn’t go as planned. Earlier today, I thought I would make this sidewalk chalk paint, sit on our patio and watch my 4 year-old paint, and relax a little while doing so.
I let the hummingbird help me make the chalk paint and we went outside.
I got her all set up, walked in for the camera, and a few minutes later, she accidentally knocked over the pan with the paints.
She took off her shoes and stomped around in it. My anal side came out and I thought “nooooo, this isn’t the way it’s supposed to go”.
Then I saw how much fun she was having and took the stick out of my ass. I enjoyed watching her stomp around in the paint and make footprints.
She ended up covered in the stuff and it was a quick bath since dinner was almost done. While I started writing this, I realized that it’s usually better when things don’t go as planned and most of my favorite memories are of those unplanned moments.
My point. If you’re a perfectionist like me and want EVERYTHING to always go right, push yourself a little and go outside the box.
Enjoy these unplanned moments that will most likely become some of your and your child’s favorite memories.
