One of my favorite parts of October is the tradition my family has, which is painting pumpkins. Carving pumpkins is gross – just admit it. Painting them is much less gross, a bit less messy and they usually look pretty close to how you wanted them to. I will be a pumpkin painting advocate until the day I die.
This is H’s first October and I have been looking forward to him painting a pumpkin. He’s 11 months old and he liked this activity for maybe five minutes total, but it was just enough to make me feel happy about the ordeal. And he did a very nice job. However he definitely got more paint on the cardboard underneath him and on his own hands and belly.
