“Mom? I found these acorns outside. Can we pleeeeeeeaase make a squirrel house today ?”
Me: The squirrels don’t really need a house for their acorns.
Mini CG: “Well, can we make something pretty ? Today ? Right now ? Pleeeeeease ?”
Me: Well, I have some laundry to finish, and some dishes to clean, and . . . OK. We can make something pretty right now.
Can we go get some ribbons at the store ?
“Mom. Can I please have this squirrel to eat my acorns ?”
He is cute. I think so.
“Can we please make a wreath with these smelly cones and some ribbons and some of these sparkly leaves ?”
“Mom. Can you help me glue these acorns to the sparkly leaves ?”
Yes. Be careful of the hot glue.
“Mom, can we hang it up for everyone to see ?”
*sigh*. Yes, dear.
A woodland critter wreath, by Mini CG.
Complete with “sparkly leaves and smelly cones” of scented cinnamon.
Spending three hours and $20 dollars on a kid craft? Not my plan today.
Ignoring the laundry and spending an afternoon with my girl ?
