Today we tried finger painting. I was scared she wasn't going to like it, and I was right. As soon as I smashed her hand in it she freaked out. She kept screaming, "Wash hands! Ella dirty!! Dirty hands. Wash hands mommy. Yucky!" I tried to paint with her to show her it was ok and moved her hands around in the paint. She wasn't having it. I did get her to make a hand print picture, which is pretty cute. I cleaned her up and we went downstairs to play. Her tummy has been hurting all day, so we didn't do much. I wish she didn't have her tummy issues. I've been keeping tabs with all the fiber she's eating, and she's getting enough. I wish there was something I could do. Everything I've read has said she's probably holding it in so she doesn't have to use the potty. But I haven't enforced going potty unless she asks. I guess that's what to be expected with a stubborn child.
Well, I'm going to finish watching Idol. Hope everyone is having a great week!
