ART SCHOOL — All of us are artists to some extent. Our canvas may be a car engine, a kitchen or possibly a length of fabric. And our oils may be tools, baking ingredients or a sewing machine.

In this case of this little girl named Emily, her canvas was her little brother, Ethan, and her medium was peanut butter.

The scene here is a classic one: an older sibling covers a younger sibling in something messy, and it is terribly difficult to clean up. For me and my older brother, it was enough flour to make a wedding cake. For my two kids, it was stickers and body soap from the tub, and they were not taking a bath at the time.

(And an all-expense paid trip to Chicago) Emily was 3 and Ethan was 18 months at the time. > > Posted by [Gina Gardner Brown](#) on Saturday, January 24, 2009

I have to admit, when I watch this video it fills me with enough anxiety to break into a cold sweat, and it makes my right eye begin to twitch. It seems being the parent of a 4-year-old and a 2-year-old would make me accustomed to messes, but I'm not. That's why I am floored by the response from Emily and Ethan's mother. The woman is clearly a little annoyed, but she also finds it hilarious and adorable. I also find it hilarious and adorable, because Emily and Ethan are not my kids. If these were my kids, I have a feeling that my demeanor would be very different.

Regardless, these kids are pretty cute, and I have to give real props to that mom. She's truly an example of staying cool and finding the joy in a peanut butter-based art show.
