Thursday night we went on a much needed date downtown. Abe had gotten a nice gift card to Tucanos (a Brazilian Grill). We enjoyed each other's company, but I think Abe enjoyed the meal a bit more than I did. A little too much meat for my taste; however, the grilled pineapple was quite delicious. It was a pretty pricey meal, so I don't think we'd ever go their on our own dime, but since it was free I could enjoy it without worry.
But they didn't just paint on paper.
No, you may not turn Elinor into an "Italian football player".
But since I was napping, and they knew better than to disturb me to ask permission, they just proceeded with what seemed like a very fun, relatively harmless idea.
And they were right. No harm was done, creative juices flowed, and they cleaned up the mess.
And perhaps for insurance against a mom who might not be so pleased when she awoke to the mess, they painted some mathematical formulas and polluted ocean painting as well.
Truth be told, this was very wise of them and did play into my pleasant reaction.
