Last week, Mr Napping was off in Colorado, riding four-wheelers in the frosty morning air and I was wiping boogers off my shoulder and cleaning up the third, no fourth, mess of the morning. It was 8am. You know how there are some days that, no matter what you do, are just going to drag on and on and on… This was one of those days.
Around 10:30, I’d had enough Magic School Bus, Handy Manny and Jake and the Neverland Pirates to last a lifetime – ha, wishful thinking – and decided now was the time to do that project I’d been wanting to do with my kids. “Stained Glass” leaves. I knew Little J (1.5yo) was just a little too young for this project, but hoped he’d sit and watch. Ha. I should’ve known better. This kid doesn’t “sit” for anything. Really, he cries when you put his car seat straps on because he’s “stuck”. Big J (4yo) thought this was cool. The first leaf. After that, he was less impressed, but still checked back in.
