  1. We use watercolour pencils and then wetbrushes. Keep in mind that all of these things start to get heavy and you have to haul it all around. Sometimes keeping it simple is best. We have a bag packed with all the things, but I often put it in the car and then only select a few things once we reach our destination. Hand loupes/magnifying glasses are a must. And my phone with camera. Everything else is optional and depends on how far we have to haul everything.

  5. I let the kids make cloud dough today. It ended with cornstarch all over the room and a trail of footprints leading out of it. Vacuuming the floor and furniture, washing most surfaces in the room, and showers for the kids... finally my room is back to the stage of legos on the floor and play food out of the bin. Which in comparison is very tidy. So... just know that it could be a whole lot worse!

  8. My 4yo came up to me with his glass of water a couple days ago and said, "I would like a little solid in my liquid please." I was so surprised I just stood there until he said, "Ice, Mum. I would like ice." (and looked at me like I was clueless!)
