I made a big mistake with my daughter...when she was 7 she went to 4 H...When they had their show she entered watercolors and oil paintings and cake decorating. As you walk around you can hear the judges and then they write on the tag...well, they thought she hadn't done the painting herself...she had a brush in her hand at 2...no she it isn't her design...but she did ALL the painting herself. That had such a negative impact on her, then in grade school she had molded a girl, sitting on a bench playing the piano (when I find it I'll share it) In order to get it done she was allowed to bring it home to paint it. Well, she had a liner brush to use for the keys...not one of those crummy brushes that they had around for years...The teacher told her she was going to get an F because she didn't do it herself...she came home in tears...I stormed back to the schools, with my brushes that she had used, and a box of paints and EXPLAINED that I had not touched it and she is quite capable of painting it herself...but the damage was done. It is so sad what damage adults can do. Oh yes, the cake, I called and asked what the cake should be on, they said to cover a board with foil, which we did...they didn't judge her on the cake decorating...they said that they didn't like what the cake was sitting on, the one that won was in a cake box...Stacey still blames me for that one.lol. I have had a horrible week, this post will probably reflect that.lol.
