The best thing about having a baby is experiencing everyday events and objects for the first time.

For example: Finn making his first painting!


I cooked up a batch of edible finger paint (1/2 cup flour and 1 cup water, cooked until thick, then thinned down – and cooled down – with water until a lekker consistency is reached. A generous dash of salt to make it keep longer apparently). A few (okay, a lot of) drops of food colouring and we are ready paint!

He ended up playing with the spoon most of the time, rather than the paint. Next time I’ll add sponges or things to dip into the paint for him to play with.

Also, that paint tastes delicious.
