Hadley collected several seashells she liked and put them in a bag. I thought that she might like to decorate them during her "down time" in the afternoon one day this week. Hadley likes to do anything that I'm doing during quiet time which makes these hours in the day a little challening for me. I adore the child, but sometimes it's nice to have a little quiet in the day.
However, I have found that if we are doing arts and crafts together, she can work on her stuff, and I can work on my stuff and the both of us are happy. So that's what we did this week.
A bag o' goodies I made for Hadley's teacher. To be clear - I stamped it. I did not sew it.
A note to go with the bag.
Meanwhile, Hadley painted and glitterfied seashells.
Hadley says the most interesting and funny things when we are both working and it's just the two of us. I like to keep a notebook close by so I can remember what she says. I assumed that since we just got back from the beach, and she was with several of her relatives, she'd talk to me about her time there. So I was eager to hear what she said.
Here's what happened:
"Momma, remember when you, Grandma, me, and Daddy were at the pool on vacation?"
"Well, remember when Daddy said, 'Mom' and you and Grandma both said, 'What?'"
"He shoulda just said, 'Callie.' Then you woulda known who he was talking to."
"That's a good point, Hadley."
That's all I got.
C'mon, Hadley. Don't you know I completely depend on your for my writing material?
