It feels so good to be doing one of these posts after two weeks off! I had such a great Holiday with my family, I hope you did too! I don't know about you, but I miss the coziness of the season. There's just something magical about it! But alas, January came just the same and brought a cold front with it.
While I was off, Peanut also had some time away from daycare, and that meant a whoooooole lot of watching My Little Pony. While playing My Little Pony. So, when I drew the 5 COLORS prompt... is it any wonder that Princess Celestia and her rainbow-colored mane popped in to my brain?

Peanut's big gift for Christmas this year was Canterlot Castle, home of Princess Celestia. I had been looking for a themed playset for Sparklegirl for a while, and when I saw this one, I knew it was the one! The Princess Celestia pony came with the set, along with Spike. If I'm not mistaken, I think this is the only way to get her royal highness, and she was the pony little Peanut couldn't stop talking about. Seemed like a win-win at the time, which has turned into a win-win-win because she looooooves playing ponies! Kids can be so fickle with toys, so I'm stoked that she likes it so much!
When I drew the 5 COLORS prompt this week, I was definitely missing those days at home with Sparklegirl, playing ponies. Originally, I was thinking seriotype, but that all changed after an extra-long bedtime last night. I was a little overtired by the time I sat down to paint, so instead of a seriotype, I chose simple skittles in the Princess Celestia color theme.
This weekend, I'm sure we'll be playing a lot more ponies at Chez Sparkle, and hosting some tea parties on the MLP app. All while watching My Little Pony. I think we're a few episodes in to Season 4? Is it wrong to admit that I'm loving watching it with her? I'm amazed at how much kids shows have changed from when I was little. And maybe a little jealous. But it is fun sharing something with her that I loved playing with when I was a kid. What are your plans? Is your kiddo into MLP? Let me know in the comments!
