Three years ago, I wrote a post about how I wanted to be 2 years old again. Unfortunately, I yet have to learn that kind of freedom from (my own) scrutiny. I have, however, had the chance to spend quite a bit of time working on arts and crafts with my little girl this week and be like a five year old again. Last Wednesday we were on our weekly visit to the library and picked up another of the Williamson Little Hands books. So on my days off this week, we pulled out her box of craft supplies and got our hands covered in glue and paint. So far, we've made ourselves a mobile, a shark, a squid, and found a jellyfish that she made earlier in the week without me. I may not have had a chance to work on my assignments this week, but I sure enjoyed watching her get creative. I hope she never outgrows it. I hope that when she's thirty-six years old she'll still love peeling the glue off her hands and won't mind the paint on her face.
|"Sharkala" Yeah... she also has a blue Beta she calls "Blue Fin", a white can named "White Snow", you get the gist|
|Her mobile =)|
|Detail of the treasure chest she drew and cut out|
|An ocean painting -- that's a pink dolphin and silver flying fish. The animal in the water is a frog, of course, couldn't you tell from the feet?|
|Her jellyfish. Still needs a name.|
