It’s National Pumpkin Day!

Happy National Pumpkin Day everybody!

Austin and I came up with the brilliant idea to let our daughter paint her first pumpkin. Somehow, we thought painting with our one year old with an “I can do everything by myself” attitude would be a good idea. We had some meltdowns when Mommy said no to eating the paint (I know, I’m the worst). But we really did have a good time all together as a family and let me tell you how thankful I am for Crayola Kid’s Paint. This kid had paint all over herself, all over me, all over our patio and it all washed out so easily! It’s also non-toxic, which helps you breathe a little easier when you see your toddler putting the brush in her mouth! Mom win!
