Baby Banksy

We found some pink chalk at the playground yesterday. Malcolm insisted on coloring on every piece of playground equipment. I’m certain he is expressing some profound social and political insights here.

My poor little monkey slipped on some wet playground equipment and sprained his tiny knee yesterday. It is the saddest thing to see such a little kid limping around. Luckily he doesn’t seem to be in any pain today, but to keep him from running all over we’ve been doing indoor activities. I thought I’d try making him some playdough since we have all the ingredients.

I used this recipe which was very simple and straightforward.

It was a hit! He really enjoyed it.

Learning to Color

Malcolm is 14 months old now with tons of energy and curiosity. He wants to do everything we do. So this weekend I pulled out my old tin of beeswax crayons and covered a drawing board with paper and we sat and colored for a while. He is starting to get the hang of it, making arcs of color with the crayons. And nibbling on them when Mama isn’t looking.
