More face painting...

Over the weekend we happened upon a farmers market where we scored some cheap bananas and passionfruit. Delightful! Of course there was a face paintings tall, and M is positive she is entitled to a face paint whenever and where she sees them. Not so on this weekend. We're cutting back!

After a silly tantruam (I just love being that parent who walks around a quiet little market with a sobbing, screaming child, ignoring her) she said she was going to paint her face herself when we got home. That's OK, I said. Here is her creation:

So not only did we save the money and she reduced just a  little of that sense of entitlement, she gained a huge amount of pleasure by doing it herself. A win, and she was so proud!
