Today, I am going to my son's school to read to his kindergarten class. I have chosen a book that is currently VERY popular at our house. The book is, I Ain't Gonna Paint No More! by Karen Beaumont. It goes a little something like this: One day my mama caught me paintin' pictures on the floor and the ceiling and the walls and the curtains and the door, and I heard my mama holler like I never did before..."YA AIN'T A-GONNA PAINT NO MORE!"
I ain't gonna paint no more, no more, I ain't gonna paint no more. That's what I say...but there ain't no way that I ain't gonna paint no more. So I take some red and I paint my...Head! Now I ain't gonna paint no more. Aw, What the heck! Gonna paint my...Neck! Now I ain't gonna paint no more. Still, I just can't rest till I paint my...CHEST! Now I ain't gonna paint no more.
Today, I am celebrating being rich...not rich with material things, but RICH with the love a child brings to your life...to know that I have everything that I need as long as I have my family...to know what a blessing it is to see the constant smiles that fill my house every day. This post is for all the times I have said "no jumping on the bed," because after all, who can resist this much fun??? Today, I dare you to allow your kids TO JUST JUMP!
