Crafty Love

Q-ster has really created some awesome crafts for me at school. This one is a little heart-shaped pin.

Back in November, he came home from preschool saying, “I made you a necklace for your birthday, Mommy! I hid it in my room.”

The next day, his preschool teacher caught me at drop-off. “That necklace – we were teaching A-B patterns, and Q-ster was the only one who sat through and strung the whole pattern!” She especially wanted me to know that, and since he’d told her that he was hiding it under the couch, she worried that it might get vacuumed up. We know that the couch in his room hides his treasures, so aside from periodic inspections to make sure there aren’t any candy wrappers, we leave it alone.

Five weeks later, he brought out the necklace of beads and presented it to me with a great flourish. Tears in my eyes, that’s for sure.

I hope you had a fabulous Valentine’s Day. I loved having my boys (big and little) and my parents here today.
