Painting for Papa (Mr Fix-It)

I've recently brought painting time into the bathroom. It makes cleaning up a whole lot easier. I dream of setting up a nice space for art and craft activities to be done. But that will have to wait, for now. There are too many projects I'm trying to tackle at the same time, as is!

In the last few weeks, Bubbles has developed a Daddy's girl thing where she always wants to Show Papa her artwork or any other interesting thing about herself (like when she's snugly wrapped up in her bath towel with its hood on her head). 

A few days ago, when my part-time cleaner wanted to help me clear up the bathroom after a painting session, Bubbles got all frantic, thinking that she was going to throw away her paintings. She ran up to her, waved her hand and said: No no, don't touch! Show Papa!

The childish seriousness of her delivery thoroughly amused my cleaner. The kind soul assured her that the paintings will be kept for her to show her beloved Papa.

In Bubbles' eyes, Papa is also the important Mr Fix-it who is admirably able to fix anything. Even stuff on YouTube. When she sees that Elmo's radio 'won't work', she tells me with an index finger in the air and a knowing nod: Papa fix!

And the youtube video's one of Kaizer's fav videos when he was about 2 years old. We hardly search for sesame street on youtube anymore. Should go dig it up for Titus to see if he likes it too.

Oh yes! Although some time after I showed her this vid, I was told by one of the pre-schools I visited that we shouldn't introduce the ABCs as we learnt it as they now learn to say the letter phonetically =P All well.
