Just wanted to post something funny on this cold windy Monday. Friday we hosted a One Creative Family Work night. We had Mary making fabric kleenex holders that have a pocket on the back for chapstick and hand sanatizer. Alicia making macrame, Ashley making a cute wood Welcome sign, Destiny making hearts with a heart hole punch, and Alexis painting with Alcohol ink. Grandma was helping Destiny and visiting with all keeping them on task. Grandpa opened the wine, cut summer sausage and cheese. Alicia asked me to tell Ashley the story of Cinderella my grandmother (hispanic) would tell us. The basics of the story are the same, just names and a few changes. I wasn’t sure Destiny was listening as this 4 yr old was humming and punching hearts. All went well, now jump to Saturday. Destiny spent the night and on Saturday wanted to continue with the hearts. She handed me a piece of paper to cut a big heart. when I folded it she got mad and tore it half throwing it on the floor saying she didn’t want a fold in it. I told her she threw it on the floor so she could pick it up and put it in the trash. She stomped off saying “You are being mean to me! Just like those mean step sisters making me do all the chores! I just wanted a heart with no folds! ” I had to leave the room with her mumbling and Grandpa had to get into to it too telling me to stop being mean. Still makes me laugh. The rest of the day went better for her with making 6 hearts(she has to do things in equals of 3)
Today more Teddy bears coming your way. Hopefully this afternoon we can post some photos. I have the bodies and limbs of 2 purple and 2 pink made and stuffed it is jut attaching them and I need to fine just the right buttons for eyes and to add the limbs.
Find something funny to laugh about even when you are being called mean.
