Youngest daughter: "Mom, can I paint something?"
Me: "Paint something? Like what?"
YD: "Ummm, how 'bout one of those things. You know, those little houses."
Me: (long pause, thinking hard....) "Oh, the little bird houses?"
YD: "Yes! Can I?"
To be honest, I almost said no. Well, because it was being saved. Saved for that PERFECT craft. Saved for that special gift. "That" occasion. You know, saved.
And, I would have to drag out the paints, cups, water, brushes, blah blah blah. Sigh.
Wait! My baby girl wants to craft. To create! Its washable paint and the birdhouse was a dollar for Pete's sake! It will give her something to do, keep her busy for a while, hone her painting skills, and improve her dexterity!
Me: "Sure, let me get the things you need. How about in the kitchen?"
It sits in my office and doesn't match a thing, but it is PERFECT. That worked out nicely, didn't it?
P.S. Before I could even get back to what I had previously been doing, she was done! Maybe I should have given her glitter... Pin It
