I do love that man

Ok, so Eric spent the entire day painting. He was a bit grumpy and so was I, to be honest. He painted Drew's room. Blake was very interested and Eric told him that his room was next. He told him it would be blue.

When it was bedtime, Drew's walls had were tan, and Blake's were still white. Blake resisted going to bed, but that is not so unusual. I went to check on him and he was crying pitifully in the corner. I asked him what was wrong, and he said, "Paint?" He was sad that Drew's room was painted and his was not! It about broke my heart.
Eric promised him when he was finished with Drew's, that he'd start on Blake's room. We put him back to bed, but he kept getting up and crying, saying, "Paint?"

So, what did Eric do? He went out in the garage and opened Blake's blue paint. He painted a blue block on the wall for him.

And Blake is one happy little boy.
