Finally fingerpainting

Fingerpainting in a house you're trying to keep show-ready in a slow real estate market is not recommended! Since we moved here, we've been remodeling, and a lot of our stuff has stayed packed away.

At first, she washed her hands each time she changed colors, and then she used a craft stick to spread the paint around. But finally she got into it:
