I tried out Oliver with some finger paints. I really needed him to be occupied while I tried to tidy up the kitchen (see in the background?!) so I put one of my old T-shirts on him for a smock and got out some red and blue paint. He seemed to have fun, but all I heard the whole time was "messy! messy! messsyyyyy!"...I don't know where this boy got his neat-freakness from! He did paint long enough for me to get the dishwasher loaded and the counters cleaned. We got 4 good pictures, too. I'll have to get pictures of them and post them on here at some point.
