That Pigbear had other ideas

Notice the correct use of Pigbear: “That Pigbear”. We’ll also accept “The Pigbear”. Otherwise it’s now Pi’Bears or Pi’Bear. Hey, if Prince and Diddy (P.Diddy, Puffy, PuffDaddy???) can do it so can we. All nicknames are subject to morph without notice.

So today That Pigbear had other ideas. I thought she might enjoy “painting” with ketchup and mustard. It sounded like a fun, easy-clean art project. She was entertained by that for about 3.7 minutes. Then, all done. What I didn’t count on was how AMAZING the easy-clean part would be. I sat her next to the sink with her feet dangling in and started trickling the water. She was thus entertained for the next 45 minutes. Toddlers. Huh.

Have a lovely weekend, friends!

OMG, Jada looooves playing in the water and it’s one of the things I can “whip out” and sustain for a given time, the sink is a great hit. Great pictures.
That banner is simply darling!!!

yes that is one of alla’s fave pastimes…it’s a bit cool in the house for it right now but all summer it’s my fave way of washing the sand off her after playing outside…seriously buys another 30 mins of engrossed time. in the house where it’s cool:)

It’s funny the things that little ones love. My daughter could play with my husands blackberry all day.

I also love your new banner pic.

I love the new banner.

Water is always fun. The girls love it and would stay in it forever to play if we would let them. You would think they were fish how they love it so. Sarah looks like she was born with those wings in the banner. Lovely.

You never know what will entertain the kids. The newest expensive toy? Probably not. The box? Definitely.

Wow, “The Pig Bear” sure is a cutie! Did you cut her hair? It’s very becoming.
Love you all…

New Banner! She is so big!

Your slump “is so over we need a new word for over.”

AnnaFebruary 17, 2007 - 2:52 pm

You will always be my angel.

Yes, we too love the banner! Now, did you purchase and keep those wings 😉

(just teasing you).

…I know your clients would love to get their pictures taken with the wings!

Nick too loved the water – he would stay in the bath for HOURS. Another good one – PlayDoh – guaranteed at least 2 to 3 hours worth of entertainment.

Glad you’re “back”!! 🙂

MeganFebruary 18, 2007 - 6:51 pm

Adorable! Ditto with everyone else on the banner. It’s amazing!

jennyFebruary 19, 2007 - 12:38 pm

First, love the banner! 🙂

Toddlers are easily entertained, aren’t they?

My youngest loves playing in the water also. If he can’t climb up on the counter fast enough before I can catch him, he’ll run for the bathroom (i.e. the toilet — ew!)

Have a great week!

What a wonderful surprise to put a smile on my face this morning, what an awesome picture. Can Nick wear those wings for his pictures (J/K).

Sarah sure looks big in these pictures… Gina

Love your blog! I saw you on ILP a while back and I’ve been ‘secretly’ following your photography since. I’m still working on my own blog but hope to keep with it this time!! 😉
