Good Thing For Dads




How is it I can spend all week with her and barely feel like I have time to color?  Or paint?  Or glue?  Then dad gets home, and after a half an hour they've been playing and creating and she comes upstairs with some new fancy pipe cleaner glasses.  I try to make the resolve to do something more creative and come up with some cool crafts, but I got nothin'.  Lucky for her she's got a creative dad. 

  She kinda reminds me of an pseudo-intellectual angsty teenager trying in this picture....that or a young Lisa Loeb.

  2. Love the glasses! She looks so grown up in the picture (which is funny, cause the glasses aren't, you know, sophisticated or anything). She's lucky to have a creative and involved dad (you're not the only mom who doesn't craft it up with her kids!).

  6. P.S. Some of my crafty ideas that have worked: I set up things in advance, and Graham works on them when I have to do something for Audrey. I made a bunch of house-outlines on big paper (with the walls, roof, floors, stairs), and he has a bag of stickers, crayons, markers, etc, and decorates/populates the houses himself:) I also made a hop-scotch outline with masking-tape on the floor, for a rainy day:) I figure I will pull it up when he gets sick of hopping all over it!
