The first thing she told me when we got in the car after school was, "Mama, I can't wait to come back tomorrow." I think that is a good sign :o)

I just wish they used washable paint in first grade! I tried spray and wash...any other ideas? It is on her new shirt, new skirt, new socks and new shoes! My child really likes gets into her projects. Too bad we don't have any Touvite Forte!

Oh, bless you! Sweet girl though! I don't know too much but I've had some good luck with getting some paint out with the Oxi Clean Gel Stick. My granddaughter slid down the pole on my patio and got red paint all over her jeans and Oxi Clean took it all out. I put a very heavy coat of it on the stains, rubbed it in good and let it sit for a while, then applied another coating and let it sit for a little while before finally running it throught the wash. This get stick is good with a lot of stains but it doesn't specifically say for paint. It is for Grass & Blood, Food Stains, Soil & Clay, Grease & Oil. Otherwise you might consider trying a little mineral spirits.
Good luck!

I got the Gel Stick at Wal Mart

For the paint: You could try straight Simple Green. My other suggestion would be the cheapest hairspray you can find. Spray it on, let it dry, & then wash. If all else failed, that was my go to paint remover when I worked in the theater scene shops in college. Good luck!

I bet that was an emotional first day for you! Why the change???

What happened with homeschooling??? I was very surprised to see she is going somewhere now! Can't help with the paint issue. I have a stack of clothes that we use just for painting and such because they were ruined previously!

I soak in Oxy-Clean/Water mix in the sink first, then wash. It seems to get most things out! Good luck with the paint!!! I agree...they should ALL be washable!! Good luck at your new school HA! I, too, am curious...what happened to change your mind? Hope everything is ok!

Good grief! Don't they put a giant cover over the children when painting?!?! I would be angry! Our school wouldn't let Henok dress out for P.E. (at 12yrs!) and I gave them 2 choices. Either they can purchase new uniforms at $45 a piece for him when they tear and have stains, or let him change for P.E. They decided he could change clothes. :)
